No, the news is not that Perving Jedi has closed his Natalie Portman nip-slip website, but rather that LinuxWorld 2006 Conference & Expo is batting for the other side - and when we say the other side, we mean the forces of galactic darkness operating from their base in Redmond, USA:

http://www.linuxworldexpo.co.uk was running Microsoft-IIS on Windows Server 2003 when last queried at 3-May-2006.
