Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Competition Let's face it, life's a struggle. You get up, you go to work, you get paid. You're not appreciated, you're in debt, the dog needs an operation and then, to cap it all, your wife runs off with the bloke from sysadmins.

So, what are you going to do? Punch him at the office party? Pour paint stripper over his car? No, don't be silly. What you need is revenge so hideous that the bastard will be a laughing stock for decades. Got it! I'll send him a yellow Reg button shirt...

Yes, it's true. If you

really

want to express your feeling for that special someone, there's nothing to beat the original sunflower extravaganza. The origins of this classic are lost in the mists of time, i.e. no-one at Vulture Central is foolish enough to admit ever having ordered them.

And we've tried everything to shift 'em, God knows. To no avail. So it is that we are finally admitting defeat and withdrawing them from our spectacular Cash'n'Carrion January sale.

However, instead of burning the whole lot in the Vulture Central back yard, we decided to let loyal Reg readers have a bit of fun. If you can think of someone who royally deserves to receive something special through the mail, email us here.

All you have to do is complete the following: I think X would look good in a yellow button shirt because... The three most entertaining entries will win prizes for their nominated person, as follows:

  • First prize - One button shirt
  • Second prize - Two button shirts
  • Third prize - three button shirts

Yes, we know - it's an old joke. Let's see if you can do better.



The deadline for entries is 5.00pm GMT on Friday 25 January. Mark the subject of your entry button shirt. Results next week. Don't worry - we won't print the nominees' names. Winners will be contacted for dispatch details after the announcement.®
