Tomorrow The Register launches Salmon Days, a pay-per-view live action video strip, inspired by our beloved Bastard Operator from Hell.

We use the word 'inspired' advisedly; we are not trying to reproduce BOFH's weekly columns, but instead will be producing original scripts.

The first episode is free. Thereafter we'll be charging a small sum of money for each episode (which will be three-five minutes long.) We'll tell you more tomorrow.

Get with the programme

So far we have received 600 responses from a test showing, sent out to members of our email newsletter list.

The feedback was encouraging - but there was some confusion and concern. Ten people did not like the profanity. Some of you were confused by the English accents, others thought it was disjointed, More of you wanted to know what the hell is a Salmon Day.

So here's some answers.

Warning: Salmon Days contains some nudity, swearing, violence, English accents. And jokes. Don't watch if any of the aforementioned upset you.

The inaugural Salmon Days is a scene-setting trailer. It's supposed to be disjointed. Subsequent episodes will be based around a narrative theme.

And finally what is a Salmon Day? You've all had one - a day when you spend all your time swimming upstream, only to get screwed. ®
