    I agree on the career side of things, I've got a reasonable technical background but I don't think that I've really acquired any new technical skills, Iím sure that other facets of the role have helped my soft skills etc.

    This has been the quickest yet for a usable machine, just getting bogged down in the little details now.

    I always have my "I love computers" mug on my desk (always use it as a pen/stationary tidy), A sign on the back of my monitors which they see as soon as they walk in saying "Shhhh! Genius at work!" and a nice little sign with a cirlce saying "Bang head here" (Edugeek has a branded one IIRC somewhere)

    Good luck in your new role, im sure you will love it! Mart

    Oh Facebook has a mention on here already regarding adverts.

    This is how ad-sense works. [in my experience]

    Fits quite well in Categories:Rants then.

    This is a rant but not in support of Google but in derision of the media and it's normal screwed up hysteria.

    Since the TOS update, it uses Web History in the Google panel to deliver ads. Since I wiped and disabled that feature on my account, it has confused it somewhat.

    I'm not sure if it still does it, but google used to pretty much rip what you search for and stick it into an ad. [or it uses similar words]

    So, sometimes you end up with ads to "Buy slaves" if you're searching something to do with slavery.


    Then you have the age-old "Meet women online" style ads when you search for WoW.

    No can do. Family shenanigans to deal with on the weekend.

    It doubly sucks because our HT mentioned it last christmas, and said we'd go. [we = HT + ICT Co-ord and myself.]

    Can't you go on your own on Saturday? They cannot keep you away as a private individual.
