Register Reporter Required

This week's advertisement on the site aimed at pumping some fresh blood into The Register's editorial team brought in a couple of interesting offers.

One applicant and reader, Zeb Davis, seemed to have everything we were looking for. And more...

Dear Mister Blincoe,

I have bean reeding The Register (r) for a few years now and always find it funny and informativ. In fact, as well as using it to keep up to date with the latest in IT news, I hav used it to help impoov my Inglish. I bet you would never hav gesed that only 2 years ago, I couldnt reed or rite a single word!

I would luv to be considered for a reportorial position with your grate organization and feel that althou I dont have any formal jurnalistic experience, that my entusiasm and tecnical noledge wood shine thu.

I no all the technical buzzwords like RAM, ROM, RTFM and FUBAR and also no a great joke about a hamster that I cood work in to my first story.

I am currently unemploid and wood luv the oportunity to work in sentral london, wear there are lots of macdonalds and prity ladys.

A frend sed I shud chek wot yor dress code is and I thout this wood be a good idea in case I need to by one for the interview.

I am reely looking forwad to meeting you.

Finally, someone who speaks our language.

Meanwhile, the male Reg staff members were rather intrigued when this email, from Diane, came plopping into the inbox:

Love to apply for the position myself but I have no right to work in the UK. Still though, if you ever need an intern with White House experience (wink, wink, nod..nod) you know who to call.

Thanks for the generous offer, Diane. It has been noted. ®
