Tea-drinker par excellence

I've been bingjacked.

I was searching for some information on FAME, a company information database provided by Bureau van Dyke using a feed from Companies House. Specifically, I wanted to know how CH holds their data and what BvD do with it. I think CH hold scanned records which BvD take and use to create their commercial database.

Anyway, for some reason access to bvdep.com is running very slowly from here at the moment. Our web access can be a bit cranky sometimes. And then I found I'd been diverted to Bing, Microsoft's new Goolge-busting search engine. Like hijacking my web use is going to make me use them!
