    Problem is @john (now what was your real name again ? ) is that some people's names are completely unknown to me so there is no connection to be made!

    There is the same problem with twitter as well. A few years ago one friend booked two badges, the second one with his twitter ID ... and so people were able to connect Drew to @ digitalmaverick ... the next year some folk had their twitter IDs on t-shirts.

    There are extreme cases when people resort to becoming their avatar (Facepaint Friday!!!! must poke @Domino to bring along the kit!)

    No pizza we're all grown up now. If you're lucky the Smoothies will have sweets and cakes.

    @vikpaw... he's been my apprentice since long before he went into sixth form. He doesn't regard it as abuse. Somehow I see IT as being his career choice!

    Maybe the stand needs a 'demo' label printer to spit out handy stickers with avatar and username.

    .. and you need to find a way to convince your school that a trip to BETT would be good for them!

    Same here. I wonder if I'll get another "YOU'RE X-13?!"


    Also... 3 DAYS OFF OF WORK! I get to go ALL the days.

    Hopefully we have our IT meeting before BETT, that way I know what I'm looking for.

    Indeed.

    TBH, when [someone] turned up and you started chatting to them while in the middle of saying hey, I was all 0_0 then wandered off...
