Byte Night Update - 13 August

Well, a week into fundraising and we are nearly halfway to the total... what a generous lot! Of course, as I get nearer the target, I'll move the goalposts. Main reasons for that:
  • I'll probably have to move them anyway - If I've got Rowley with me he's likely to wee on them
  • Without casting any aspersions on what my illustrious employer asks me to do on a regular basis, I've got no chance of hitting the target if its not moving

Preparing for my retirement?

You know, you've gotta love the IT industry.

No, I mean it quite literally, if you don't love the folks I work for, they send the boys round to "do" you...

Actually, its not so bad, they're a pretty good bunch, and they train us for all manner of life's little wrinkles. Management training, presentation skills, data privacy, you name it, there's a course for it.

This new one's a humdinger though! Mindful of the credit crunch and the likely effect on our pension schemes, they're giving us the opportunity to sleep rough outside the office so we know what's waiting for us when "gold watch" day comes!

If you don't beleive me, then check this out... Oh, but before you do go over there, have a listen to my pal Dudley Saunders, and have a think about 'unslapping' a child - that'll get you in the mood I need you in when you get to my site... ... and thanks, in advance...
