    Ouch

    I've just cut myself twice on one of those sharp metal blanking plate things

    Add that to the 4/5 other cuts I've done in the past week and my hands are just full of cuts!

    Why do I have to work with such dangerous hardware

    Don't ask that question to your healthy & safety officer, they will never allow you to work on IT hardware ever again

    I share an office with the H&S Manager. Fortunately she's only in 1 day a week... I just have to be careful how I do things on Tuesdays

    I've got a scar on my finger from a cling film packet.

    Cheap cases are nasty, Thats why I like the hp business stuff and the thermaltake cases. I have got a couple of nasty scars on my fingers from twisting out the RF shields on the drive bays of cheap cases.

    None have needed stitches so far but accidents do happen when your building 20pcs from budget parts and loose concentration.

    I have got away with a lot at the places that I work but I think that that one may get me into more trouble than I could get myself out of with the bosses.

    We're all tired. I can't think straight. I drive 20 miles to work and can't even remember anything of the journey. Can't wait for the end of term so I can spend two days sleeping.
