A Shirt Tale


I got the following email this week from Rob Irwin. I met Rob earlier in the year when I participated in the Breakfast Bytes Panel. Anyways this was the email:

Hey Frank you might have already seen it, but there’s an ENORMOUS photo of you on the back page of this weeks CRN 🙂 RI


Me in CRN?? That’s pretty funny. Considering my sister Rita has recently featured too.


Turns out it’s the story about my shirt (as featured on the photo to the right)


Quick recap for those of you who have missed this saga:



Ok, we’ve caught up on the story yet?


So, it turns out that this tale is featured in the Shadow Ram section of the 19 September edition of CRN. This is what Rob was on about. And yes, it’s a true story.  But why isn’t there a photo of the shirt. Shadow Ram your readers what to see it!!


And yes Rod, that photo is enormous. Gotta love those PR head shots.


I have a feeling it’s time to update mine. Dave Lemphers doesn’t like the photo either. He said to me “that picture is soo 1990’s! Talk about airbrushing!”. I think he was trying to be nice.


Anyways, the article isn’t online yet at the CRN site, but I’m sure it will be soon.


*UPDATE* 25/09/2005 :  Story now online on CRN Site
