  1. Clever Dual Touch LCD screen

    I have had several of these installed at the primaries where I work. As a projector replacement they work well on paper, no shadow cast, no bulb to replace, evenly lit accross the display, less wires makes for a tidier installation, toughened glass etc. There's quite a few reasons to replace those aging projectors or if you have a new build then the increased labour costs of projector installation may well off set the overall cost of one of these.

    I'd say the weight of one of these ...

  4. Striking.

    Therefore why on earth is it legal to hold the general public hostage to "make a point" to your employer?

    And stop that comment you've already started typing.
    I am simply trying to understand one simple thing about striking unions, and yes this is regarding HMRC today. I'm no politician so excuse ...
  5. What a few weeks!

  6. Project: [insert witty name here] - slight update.

    This is that screen.

    Well... I say it's the screen... it's about 60% of the screen. There's some more stuff to go into it. But that stuff is being done a different way...[/mysterious]

    "What is this mysterious room?" ...
