    Lost an IT Technician

    ..but gained an iPad. Not all bad then.

    Looking forward to putting my stamp on this nice big empty office. I'm thinking, low-level lighting; lava lamps. And wall hangings with pictures of elephants.

    I've heard rumours about what you guys over the border get up to, but that's impressive, losing a whole IT Technician! I mean maybe a bit of flesh, but a whole person! Would love it be there when you sneak that into your list of orders, yer I need more toner, half a dozen new monitor, a lava lamp, few extra licenses... an ICT Technician, a new motherboard...

    Ah, that explains it - confusing place, Norwich. My first night at university there, instead of partying or whatever it was everyone else was doing until 3am, I managed to wind up wandering full circle around the ring road. The second night, after getting the bus into town to go to the cinema (which I didn't manage to find in time to actually see a film in), I promptly got lost on the way home, passing three branches of The Woolpack Inn which I later figured out were the same pub three times. My embarresment at my lack of nighttime navigational skills went unsurpassed until the next day, where I managed to get lost on the way back from Sainsbury's and missed the dean's commencement speach, proving I couldn't navigate in broad daylight either.

    To be fair, it wasn't just me - a group of scouts turned up to somewhere in Norwich to receive an award for their navigational skills, and managed to get lost on the way. I suggest you start looking for your lost IT technician on the ring road, then work your way towards the centre of town...

    Or, have you looked in the last place you had him? Lost things usually are found the last place you were together. We lost a member of our darts team once and found him where we'd left him in a layby on the A5.

    I don't think PFYs count as people.
