Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Reader poll Well, our recent invitation to you, our beloved readers, to submit a "nom de sex" - based on the name of your first pet and the first street you lived on - provoked a huge and highly entertaining response.

In fact, so great was the feedback that our poll to select the overall winner offers no less than 100 potential pornstar monikers; 50 for him and 50 for her.

Before cutting to the money shot, however, we'd like to make a few comments. First up, we understand that the street name part of the submission tended to make things a bit tricky for those of you who once lived on 10th Avenue or 14th Street and so forth.

Well, this also applied in some cases outside the US, as "Fido North Circular" proves. Sadly, Fido didn't make the final cut.

Other entries which didn't make the grade included "spitroast milf", "Ben Dover" and "Drew Peacock". We were also disinclined to believe that one wag ever had a hamster called "fuck off" while living on "you wankers" street, although it's good to see El Reg continues to attract the kind of reader whose sparkling wit is an inspiration to us all.

So, without further ado, let's get down to it. Below are the full listings, and you can vote for one name for each sex. The culprit's real identity, where submitted, is in brackets:
