Back in my time we didn't have infantile brand names like Mongo, Couch, Ubuntu, Cassandra, Futon or Hadoop. We had manly-sounding brands like Cray, DEC, Hewlett-Packard, Evans & Sutherland, SGI, Pick, and Burroughs! Reliable names... names redolent of hard work in the hot sun, from a time when getting tattoos meant you really were an outsider, not just some try-hard conformist.

I miss the old days. Just don't mention Wang.

Now, where's my whisky?
