    Booth babes

    I was about to report that I didn't agree with the booth babes comment, then I recalled having stopped, actually stopped, trying not to stare at a black leather thing that couldn't quite qualify as a mini-skirt.

    But overall there were relatively few booth staff people that looked as if they were out of place for a tech show. I enjoy an occasional booth babe, and they serve as a quick indication of the company's technical depth.

    Who let the dogs out?

    > Bill Clinton. Tony Blair. La Condi. Le Chertoff.

    Some IntelAIgent Services be Seriously Smarter than Others and Actively Pioneer Theatre Operations

    Follow the money as intelligence does, to take over the supply of money with the provision of intelligence which discovers and uncovers, and may even ruthlessly exploit what IT finds out about that which and those who don't have a clue about what should be done and what they should now do, and would therefore be doing everything wrong and painting a sub-prime picture for Politically Inept Media Presentation. ..... PIMPing.

    But fear not the FUD crud you be fed, for there are other than just pathetic dark forces at work in the fields which create your realities and be exposed to you in comments made and shared about alien austerity's end here, should you dare care for a truly informative read .....

    And very "For Whom the Bells Tolls" it be too, albeit in another dimension with other parallels.

    Follow the pack or lead the hordes, is a choice you make every day with El Reg, for most days are you advised of that which is passed into intelligence circles, and therefore To Be the Present in the Future, with the Past just AIMemory for History to Chronicle and Man to Waste Endless Time, Pontificating Upon.
