Arson attack on company boss

Johnson Wang, principal of Edge Technology and eisa, was the victim of a gutless arson attack on his home on Monday night last week, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

According to the Herald, the attack occurred after midnight at Wang's private residence in the northern Sydney suburb of Killara.

The report said that Wang awoke to the sound of an intruder alarm and upon investigation found his lounge room on fire. Wang then woke his wife, three children and housekeeper and all escaped unscathed.

Hornsby police are investigating and have reportedly enlisted help from the Asian Crime Squad.

A spokesperson from Wang's Edge Technology office in Sydney confirmed the report, and said that a shaken Wang had not revealed any details about the attack.

HDS lands Whale

Who better than a whale to promote storage? From the unusually well named department comes Hitachi Data Systems' appointment of Tony Whale as channels sales specialist. Tony is responsible for developing the channel in New South Wales.

And from where did HDS lure this whale? Most recently he was swimming around the (rival storage vendor) EMC pool.

Perpetual motion

Tabloid sources have revealed that one of the channel's most colourful commentators will be playing musical chairs for at least one more round, but the stream of data ends there.

Thought for the week

If you yelled for 8 years and 7 months, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. If you break wind consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
