flopping chickens and pudding
In other news, also seen on Slashdot, it seems that the HP and Intel collaboration was a flop. One might even call it a gigaflop, considering they were building Itanium products. Geddit ? Gigaflop ? Oh, never mind.
And finally, in the long running series of stories on festive cheer, it appears that putting up puddings on ebay might be a bad move, career wise. Does this mean that people from Buckingham palace actually scour listings on eBay for items ? How does one even find out that a (single!) spare pudding has been offered up for sale.
