Letter We can think of no better way* to end the week than with an entertaining reply to our Romanian Jedi warm to El Reg piece. Take it away, Dracula's descendant:

Heh good one;) I am actually from Transylvania (Brasov or Kronstadt (DE) or Brassoi (HU)), quite close to the castle known as Dracula's Castle (which is actually Bran Castle and nobody is really sure that Dracula aka Vlad Dracul aka Vlad Tepes - as in Stinger;) - actually stayed too long there , but what wouldn't we, as in the Romanians, do to please the mongering western crowds and give them a little bit of an adventure in exchange for their shiny golden metal-like round things -whatever those are- that we use to make fancy necklaces). You know, some things evolved regarding the decapitations and the garlic, the reason why I wrote to you, just for a short update. Doesn't work any more. Actually we do like garlic and use it too much nowadays in our food, so you'd say "stay away from them, they'll kill you with their garlic breaths" versus "use garlic, they'll stay away". And decapitating is no fun anymore. We'd rather make more necklaces ;) And no more blood, heck who needs it, so old-fashioned, better suck their pockets dry (which I am pretty sure the crowds _pretend_ it's happening and we _pretend_ we did). Ah and I am a constant Reg reader, I even have that RSS thingie of yours, and I do work in IT, yes yes we have that as well, where did you imagine the crackers crowds come from:) All the best to you, Dracula's Descendent

PS: What did you mean that we have TV? What's that? Do one eats it?

Nicely done. Visitors are duly warned to keep their coinage close to their hearts, their noses firmly clamped shut and a portable television set handy at all times. ®
