SchrEck Inc.

I Survived Single Sign-on

SchrEck Enterprises, Inc. is a fake company that was founded in 1982 by Christian Schröder and Henning Eckebrecht (hence the name). Up to this date, SchrEck Inc. unfortunately failed to gain national and international significance and to generate any income for its owners.

SchrEck Inc.'s favourite subbings

Inspired by the Have You Missed? feature on the h2g2 front page, I've decided to list a few of the subbed1 entries that I liked best.

Have fun!
