    Whatever happened to???

    Dabbsy and the BOFH?

    They seem to have been missing for the better part of this year. Are they on permanent hiatus, or just furloughed until the Covid crisis is past?

    Missing my weekly (ok, irregular for BOFH) dose of humour....

      I gonna respond in general terms 'cos I don't think it's appropriate to comment on specific people.

      El Reg's editorial team is made up of staff writers and editors who keep the site ticking over during work hours, and outside freelancers who contribute regularly or irregularly.

      When the pandemic started to bite into the economy and tech world, as might be apparent from our article output, we dialed back the use of our freelance pool as a precaution.

      I'm happy to say - hopefully without jinxing anything - that we're continuing positively commercial-wise, and I very much look forward to seeing our regular outside contributors on The Reg's pages again, and new people join the full-time team at some point.

        Thanks for the response. Good to know there's hope on the horizon.

      Same thing that happened to Paris. Nobody really cares.
