Security for virtualized datacentres

Letters OK, so now we've had 73,485 people call by on Salmon Days, the trailer for our BOFH-inspired vid streaming comedy epic.

We'll be shooting Episode One soon, and that will be out before Christmas. Subsequent episodes will start spilling onto a computer screen near you come sometime in January - it's taking us time to get our act together.

Meanwhile, here is a Salmon Days Letters Special, culled from reader feedback. Overwhelmingly, these have been supportive, but they are somewhat oppressive en masse (love the paperclip [thanks]; when's the next episode [see above]; are you going to do downloads [probably]; how can I pay from US etc [it's almost in place]).

Instead, we bring you some comments that personally interested us. We have divided them into three categories, for ease of use:

  • Amusing/quirky

  • Keepers of The BOFH flame

  • Format Wars

And so we begin with Amusing/Quirky.



How can you possibly charge for this stuff? Get real, you commie bastards. It\'s a good show, but I sure as hell ain\'t gonna pay for it. I\'ll probably just hack your site, and watch it for free.

This is an interesting use of the word "communist:, l33t. We think you mean capitalist bastards? Incidentally, l33t's linguistic inventiveness shows that communist is rapidly joining fascist as a generalised term of abuse, almost entirely divorced from its original political meaning.



Every time I tend to go on a Brit bashing spree, you little bastards have to go and do something like this.

Good job.

Good day.
