The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The normally smooth running of the Reg telephony department (John Leyden - VP in Charge of Customer Interface), was interrupted this morning when we received a call asking to be put through to "Dr Really Evil".

This did not, however, completely throw the much put-upon John, since we regularly get mail addressed to Dr Really Evil, Editor, The Register.

It appears that some wag entered this as our contact on a mailing-list database. Of course, it's not the computer's job to sort the legitimate names from the clearly frivolous, but PR bunnies should know better when cold-calling their way through the print-out.

It would be unkind to reveal the name of the person responsible for this embarrasing gaffe, so we'll restrict ourselves to offering Emma from Latitude this small piece of advice: There's no Dr Really Evil here at Vulture Central. Next time, ask for Ernst Stavro Blofeld. He deals with sales and forward features lists. ®

The smart choice: opportunity from uncertainty
