Business security measures using SSL

To cap a triumphant week at the El Reg elite headline-writing bureau, we're delighted to report today that Mel Gibson will star alongside Jodie Foster in The Beaver - the improbable tale of "a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet".

According to Variety, Ms Foster will direct the movie, as well as playing Gibson's missus. She's previously helmed 1991's Little Man Tate and 1995's Home for the Holidays.

Irate readers who are tempted to protest the lack of IT angle on this story are cautioned that although the Moderatrix is currently on holiday, we have Aaron Kempf on standby to deal with protesting commentards. Consider yourselves warned. ®
