Salmon Days makers are Commies
Are you or have you ever been a Capitalist?
Letters OK, so now we've had 73,485 people call by on Salmon Days, the trailer for our BOFH-inspired vid streaming comedy epic.
We'll be shooting Episode One soon, and that will be out before Christmas. Subsequent episodes will start spilling onto a computer screen near you come sometime in January - it's taking us time to get our act together.
Meanwhile, here is a Salmon Days Letters Special, culled from reader feedback. Overwhelmingly, these have been supportive, but they are somewhat oppressive en masse (love the paperclip [thanks]; when's the next episode [see above]; are you going to do downloads [probably]; how can I pay from US etc [it's almost in place]).
Instead, we bring you some comments that personally interested us. We have divided them into three categories, for ease of use:
- Keepers of The BOFH flame
- Format Wars
And so we begin with Amusing/Quirky.
How can you possibly charge for this stuff? Get real, you commie bastards. It\'s a good show, but I sure as hell ain\'t gonna pay for it. I\'ll probably just hack your site, and watch it for free.
This is an interesting use of the word "communist:, l33t. We think you mean capitalist bastards? Incidentally, l33t's linguistic inventiveness shows that communist is rapidly joining fascist as a generalised term of abuse, almost entirely divorced from its original political meaning.
Every time I tend to go on a Brit bashing spree, you little bastards have to go and do something like this.
The Register employs two American citizens. It keeps us firmly grounded.
OK .. why have you been filming in MY office and where are those b****** cameras? ;-)
