BBC adopts El Reg units

Vulture Central to send Auntie Olympic-sized invoice

Security for virtualized datacentres

We're delighted to announce that the Beeb appears to have got with the programme and adopted official El Reg units.

In this report on the "lake that has formed under a glacier on Mont Blanc, and threatens to flood the St Gervais valley", the Corporation quantifies the potentially-deadly body of water as apparently containing "the same amount of water as 26 Olympic swimming pools".

Well, we can add that this volume is equivalent to a breathtaking 112,984,512 Bulgarian airbags or a staggering 776,768,525 walnuts, and has the destructive potential to cover one MilliWales with water to a depth of 2.17 linguine. ®

Thanks to Edward Wright for the tip-off.
