Security for virtualized datacentres

Top dog and publisher of The Reg, Linus "Fish Fingers" Birtles was delighted to find the London cabbie that gave him a lift to work this morning was a Reg fan.

Asked what he did, Linus told our mystery cabbie that he was an Internet IT publisher. The cabbie then informed Linus he was interested in technology and that his favourite site was, you've guessed it, The Reg.

Linus revealed his true identity and gave the man a Register pin. Mind you, arriving outside Vulture Central the man was not overly impressed that we work above a kebab shop (we wear it as a badge of honour - literally sometimes after liquid lunches).

In celebration of us entering the wider consciousness, we would like to make Mr Cabbie the offer of a piece of exclusive Reg merchandise - your choice. Unfortunately, the constant hub-bub of journalism around him has not rubbed off on Mr Birtles* and he knows nothing about the bloke except the football team he supports.

So get in touch, telling us your team and address and we'll ship something straight over. Check out the selection from the online store here.

* We won't even begin to tell you why Linus was in London this morning when he should have been in Liverpool. Needless to say though it was a masterpiece of disorganisation. ®
