    He was called William English but he was an American. I feel cheated.

    Ooooh... he's rocking a nice dual-monitor rig too!

    The elf and safety people should also take a look at Razer's "Turret" keyboard/mouse-on-a-lapboard thingy - as Razer clearly nicked the idea from the topmost image in this article ;-)
