El Reg lingo giving you gyp? Do tell...

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

It's come to our attention (again) that some of our Stateside cousins continue to struggle with El Reg's flavour of the Beloved Mother Tongue™.

We have, of course, in the past published a couple of brief guides to those terms which prove The Register is a fertile breeding ground for neologisms, as well as a treasure house for obscure, and often archaic, Brit lingo.

Indeed, some time back we promised to knock together a rather more comprehensive guide detailing punters, strumpets, geezers, boffins and chavs who might be enjoying a quick twatdangle - something which generally goes titsup - so that world+dog might better follow our world-class IT coverage.

So, if there's anything which caught your eye which you reckon might benefit from a bit of clarification for future generations of readers, stick it in a comment to this piece and we'll add it to the list. Watch this space, me old china plates. ®
