If they outlaw lasers, only outlaws will have lasers.
Sorry, had to say it.

Thou shalt remember any Ass mentioned in TheReg is Ass with a period.
Thou shalt remember the immortal phrase "Pay no attention to that rootkit on your CD's".
Thou shalt also remember to click your heel three times, reciting "There's no OS but *IX, there's no OS but *IX".
Thou shalt always remember that the IT angle is you're using a computer to read it (pat pending).
Thous shalt always take every opportunity to remind people that "fanboys" is inaccurate, and even us girls agree Micro$queak sucks.
Addendum to previous rule: No, thou can't demand pictoral proof of the claimed female status of a poster pointing out that "fanboys" is inaccurate because girls too agree Micro$queak sucks just because you've never seen a female.
Thou shalt remember that the truth is always less interesting than the facts.

"Bond never been into space? What about "Moonraker"?"
That was Roger Moore, he doesn't count on account of the fact he's a total prat with all the acting ability of your average 3 week old ham sandwich.
No-one gives Bond a decent car, they know he's only going to wreck it. I think they're all Ford Escorts with creative bodywork attached.
Much as I hate to interject into this wonderful discussion, I noticed one glaring omission from the conversation, and felt it my solemn duty as one of those "old fogies" some commentators are gleefully waiting to die off (at 39!!!) to ask
Where's the IT angle?
