The eternal question for BETT
Over the last few weeks I have been a tad concerned about all those going to BETT with the intention of spending lots of money they may not have on stuff that may not be needed. With the changes in funding and the curriculum (or no stipulated curriculum) as deemed by the Department of Education.
So ... I am going to use my remaining iron-on transfers to make a t-shirt to give people advice and to introduce them to the most important question.

As opposed to previous years where people spent money that they did have on stuff that turned out not to be needed

I'm only wanting to spend money on critical things, IE USB Flash Drives for selling to children again (as the 100 I bought last year at BETT have just today run out! talk about impeccable timing!), Backup Systems as I have some funds allocated for resolving our backup issues, UPSs as I need some as I have none meaning all small electric jobs are a disaster in my servers world, and Internet Services to help me evalute and ensure we are receiving best value for money in the new financial year.

You spent money? From what I understand you can get your year's allocation for free at BETT! Why do you think I am going?

Spend money?! I'm just going for a look see, check what the fuss is all about, find what staff will be begging me for over the next 6 months and to try and build up the courage to wander into the Edugeek stand and announce who I am (fully expecting blank looks and a pat on the back with a "good for you" ;D). Or walk in and announce if anyone could help me persuade my silly little technician to install wordshark on all 200 of my macs for tomorrows lesson as they don't do anything all day except play games. Then of course run and wait to watch the fall out from the gallery
Hmmmm, I wonder if there is a key sentence that could be uttered to make the stand implode. Probably something involving Apple, capitia, backups, and pay. Possibly with the mention of speed cameras.

And for those who have DMed and emailed me ... I was going to do a whole skit on "Romans, they go towards the house?" but that meant finding a Latin alternative to Mr G's name ... and the suggestions I had tended to be based on body parts ... and that would have taken even more explanation.
I will have a translated version on the back and I am saving it for Friday evening.
