Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

It's official: the El Reg silly season has officially begun, meaning that hard-core tech news and stuff about fabs knocking out chips must give way to rehashed surveys distributed by over-excited PR bunnies - as today's front page demonstrates.

A quick survey of Vulture Central reveals that 30 per cent of all Reg staff reckon that 90 per cent of all survey respondents are PR bunnies' mates, while a chilling 30 per cent of these lie in order to get back to the job of ringing their own mates to survey them about some matter of national import. A further 30 per cent of El Reg hacks refused to participate in the survey and went instead to the pub where around one-third of the punters agreed that surveys were a complete and utter waste of everyone's time.

Please look out for a forthcoming survey in which we will ask readers whether or not they believe we should conduct a survey into demand for more survey coverage on the Register. Thank you. ®
