I could see that he was getting a lot of technical advice, much of it incomprehensible to me, so I decided to send in a spoof comment, with my own advice:
You have been getting a lot of strange advice here, Iain.
What you need is a bog standard Quark interfold, with paralell quadriplexed flux capacitor as standard (don't bother with the Heisenberg Compensator unless you want it to double up as a transporter).
Use your PC or Mac to control the linear transvernal audicable, get yourself a decent voice carapace and a Raytheon Mk11 nargle and Bob's your uncle.
Piece of piss really, if you know what you are talking about.
I actually sell everything you need for a turnkey operation, together with an extended warranty which includes call-out and annual virulence check (fully noded), for only £399
Now, those of you who follow Star Trek or Back to the Future, or indeed any Geek worth the name, would instantly spot the less than truthful nature of my "advice"
Not so, one high profile MSM editor and pundit, none other than Fraser Nelson of the Spectator.
I recieved the following email yesterday:
Dear Wicked Weasel,
I saw you post on
Iain Dale's blog - I have the same problem. Am fed
up with going into BBC studios and would like quality voice from home
- but are you saying that your solution (not sure what it's called) is
as good as ISDN and compatible with whatever broadcasters use? If so,
where could I get hold of it and how much would line rental etc be?
It does make you wonder doesn't it? And strangely, I am now "Wicked" Weasel, which I believe is a brand of skimpy beach wear. Defamation and Infamy!
