Bingley bites the hand that bites IT

The Register ®

IT Week journalist Lem Bingley isn’t afraid to bite the hand that bites IT. On his blog he asks if The Register has permission from the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to use the business name The Register.

Lem has been perusing the official guidance on business names and discovered that register is a controlled name that requires permission before it can be used.

In the same post he reveals that he has just been “unlucky enough to have been voted the Company Secretary of a small, non-profit firm”. I wonder what firm it can be? Any ideas anyone? Lem care to share?

    I am frustrated by WordPress. I use the hosted version. I moved from blogspot to WordPress, and wonder when WordPress will offer plug-ins, etc for the hosted version. I hate to move as this means starting all over on Technorati rankings. Just about to break the 100,000th mark, so I am not gonna move. And I also have a unused http://www.manojranaweera.com. Perhaps oneday, I will put this to good use.

    Be patience, my boy, your time will come!!!!!
