Behind the scenes at The Scotsman
We've mentioned many times here on The Mystery of the Haunted Vampire that The Scotsman is one of our favorite newspapers. Technology columnist Stewart Kirkpatrick gives a behind-the-scenes look:

Ignoring my pleas for mercy, they hooked me up to machine running an application they called "Cthulhu Inductor 1.0".
