Conspiracy Theory? We say bollocks

And you can quote us on that

Readers may recall a recent piece we ran on net conspiracy theories surrounding the attack on the World Trade Center.

One of the most tiresome was a rendering of the flight number (Q33NY) of one of the hijacked planes in Wingdings:


Scary stuff. The fact that Q33NY was not in fact the flight number of any of the hijacked planes did not stop the black helicopter theorists working themselves up into a right conspiratorial tizzy.

Enough of this madness, we said, enough. Accordingly, we have decided to fight the Nostradamus-quoting cyberwristers head-on with a new limited edition t-shirt:

Two fingers up at the black helicopter brigade


Yes indeed. At the same time, we would like to draw your attention to the other t-shirt featured above (bottom right) - none other than our own white Reg logo on black. Unfortunately - and due to a set of circumstances too tedious to recount here - we have got 250 of the damn things with our url in red rather than white.

Rather than bin the whole lot, we thought we'd let you have 'em cheap - £8.00 inc VAT, to be exact. Apart from the colour cock-up, they're the usual high-quality product that you have come to expect from the IT world's leading t-shirt wholesaler.

And there's more. Those of you who have recently invested in a Palm M5 might like to check out our latest Reg-branded hard case for the same. It's a top-quality item from PalmTec.

All of the above are available at our Cash'n'Carrion online store where our secure servers are waiting to talk to your credit card. ®
