    And it's really easy to scam @GAV: out of a fiver down the pub

    Don't forget to mention that the smootwall stand at BETT is just next to the EduGeek one

    @tom_newton: - i don't suppose you have a middle east contingent?

    @vikpaw: no middle-east operations yet (it'd be nice, eh?) sorry
    and yes, Gav is terribly easy to scam...

    If only I felt I had the necessary qualifications! Would be able to get a few more mins in bed as I live in Fareham but drive to S/ton.

    @LeMarchand: send me your CV anyway - you never know - we're actually looking for 2 support people in Fareham, so there might be room for someone who needs a bit of training up

    Get me an office to work in in Bedfordshire and I'd love to work for you!

    But the wife won't let me move, she likes her job apparently. And Southampton/Leeds is a bit of a drive from here...

    Shame Southampton's "catchment area" is ruined by a large expanse of wet stuff. Even our one Islander applicant (Hi!) has decided its too far

    Still... gotta be some west yorks folk around, no?

    No takers mate? Come on people Smoothwall are Ace, I know some people probably think were all on back handers from them for saying it, but honest were not!!! If you lot don't take it I'll have to move to Leeds and take it for you

    If you are worried Tom's paying us to be nice, you are not the only people that may be sceptical, but we do it as we are really passionate about them!! I remember a good scene from this years BETT, it was a prospective customer asking Gav if he had any customers he could talk to so he was usherd over to Edugeek and near enough everyone on the stand at that time, I think there were about 7 of us, were Smoothie customers I believe that guy bought in the end as well didn't he Tom / Gav?

    It's the hours that are the most difficult bit as the fast ways on/off the Island stop in the evening, meaning it's slow ferries instead. I shall have to console myself here with a new SAN instead

    @DMcCoy; - which bit of the hours? You mean the 0830 start? Coz laties are (I am led to believe) becoming a thing of the past as the US team grows.

    @john; thanks again - it really means a lot to us that we have friends like you (it would seem rude to downgrade you to "customer" ) - it makes life most pleasant when the majority of the people we get to work with actually like working with us!

    Well, our Leeds office is very nice and its a great place to live.
    Can't comment on soton - the office is great (I am there now) but living at the travel binn sucks.
