    I think I took the last edugeek travel mug at BETT...

    Had the joy of seeing a teacher have a little rant about people using her mugs while sipping from my RM mug in the staff room last week. Who knew she was qualified?

    Well of course she is. Who else to better give a lecture on mug-stealing than a mug-thief?
    Do-as-I-say, not do-as-I-do.

    I was using a cup from home until I got my shiny colourful Serif mug. My cup is now back in my kitchen at home where it belongs.
    One cup in about 2 years and 3 months, and I had to phone up and get a goodie bag for that :P

    Was that what it was for? I dunno, I didn't go to BETT
    It had free software in it, and I am in somewhat of a requirement of a movie editor and web designer. Figured might as well claim it.

    For me, it's the fact that I can order to my own specification and the fantastic customer service. For the head, it's the free 5-year warranty on the Broadleaf series, the ridiculously cheap 3-year extended warranty on the Thinbook - oh and the laser etching.

    EDIT - And - on topic - ICT Technician is only a tiny fraction of my titles. Others include photographer, web designer/developer/editor, music support, physical trainer, supply teacher and all round good egg!

    Woohoo. Reclamations
    No, this came through as a letter sent to a colleague (the network manager) but he didn't want it so he passed it to me.
    We use MoviePlus here and I think that's it. The letter was obviously "Here, try our latest X6/X7 software and see how amazing it is and spend £2,000+ fitting your school out with it!" dolled up as goodwill freebees, so I told the guy on the phone I had no purchasing power. He sent me the goodie bag anyway.
