    According to the Select Website "Select CD's have started shipping and should reach everyone sometime in the next week"

    Note: As a thought, how long does it take post to get from Cardiff to (say) Edinburgh first class? Sometime next week doesn't sound right.

    As reported at The Register

    During his keynote, Intel's Greg Fister boasted about McKinley's great potential to crush rival RISC systems. And he had figures to prove it.

    Fister unveiled benchmarks that showed Itanic roasting what he described as "one of our leading enterprise contenders", in the form of a BBC Acorn computer.

    Note: The article's author, Andrew Orlowski, whilst these days busy reporting on what he dubs Intel's Itanic Cockups (and similar news), is also, in his own words, "an Archimedes veteran". Little wonder that he's not taken in by Intel's spin.


    Please note: New EU Directive 456179

    In order to meet the conditions for joining the Single European currency, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase "Spending a penny" is not to be used after 31st December 2001. From this date, the correct terminology will be: "Euronating".

    Thank you for your attention.

    Note: (I think this is taking the Euros ;-p - mod.)
