MoD computers hit by deadly virus

Ministry of Defense (MoD) computers have been hit by a severe virus that affects email and internet access.

I thought PC Advisor was a British publication.

Exactly my point. Why is PCA showing it as "Ministry of Defense" rather than "Ministry of Defence"?

is one letter in a word, and whether it's a 'c' or an 's' I envy you.

It certainly isn't something that warrants a thread of its own in a web forum, is it?

Rest assured the appropriate person has been flogged on horseguard's parade.

FE it's on a par with other trivia you let be discussed without such comments innit.

Horseguards Parade.

"If all you have to worry about is one letter in a word, and whether it's a 'c' or an 's' I envy you." What an immature comment. I'm sure he's got other things to worry about but his point is valid.

However, it does relate to a comment about America which the FE won't stand for!

If the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own, then don't respond and it will then just disappear down the list into oblivion.

All sorted now and apologies for lapse into American spelling given. (Jeremy is American but based in our London office. We'll make him eat fish and chips for a week.)

Actually, Managing ed, it should be Horse Guards Parade. I agree it's a pity about the tetchy response (again)
