Since Richard has (somewhat over-harshly I suspect) called himself a whore,
I must relate a quick story.

John Cleese of Monty Python was on with the American chat-show host David
Letterman a couple of years ago. Letterman asked him about the commercials
that he produces, supposedly to pay the bills. (his day-job???). Cleese
says "Oh yes, David, I make these commercials to bring in a few quid. I'm
a right whore at it, actually"

David was slightly shocked by this, stammering "Oh no, no, not a whore,
certainly, that's a bit strong... I mean, they're really funny right?"

Cleese responds, "Well... I'm a _good_ whore."

So I suppose that if we are going to descend to techo-whoredom, we ought to
at least do it with conviction.
