    Only problem is when you go with your headteacher and colleagues IE school outing and there are then 7 Headteachers! I'd go for a few Asst Heads, Deputy Heads and Supporting Heads to ensure that its not too suss!!

    Oh God, reminds me of a few years ago at another school, an LSA did something of a similar vane when attending on the Saturday and just happened to bump into the SMT from her school who clocked her badge. Awkward....

    Seen boatloads of students, other halves, randoms, OAPs, etc. at both BETT & Infosec. You'll have no problem at all. If you do, ring our office and ask them to get me on my mobile... i'll come out and do my "irritated exhibitor routine" at the ticket desk (sometimes works!!)

    Thanks Tom.

    I'm down as a Computer Scientist from Durham University on my badge - I thought that was a happy medium between "staffy" and "studenty". See you all there!

    One of my collegues signed another up as a "Technical Donut Assesser", he wasn't too keen to wear the badge though.

    A slight thread hijack, but I should be going this year I shall start planing operation "complain loudly at apple stand", "glare at Capita stand", "Roll eyes at microsoft stand".

    Should anyone use the phrases "going forward" or "synergy" within ear shot then they will be assaulted with a dictionary or thesaurus.

    I shall be asking useful questions. Like: When you share a printer in 10.5 server, why doesn't it actually *share* the printer?

    MS will need asking when the SP3 login bug is going to be fixed.

    Not that I think it's going to change anything, but 10 minutes throwing things at the apple stand will make me feel a whole lot better

    A quick search on google for buzzword Bingo cards brings up some fun ones. I have some adapted for education and have been known to take them to seminars (including those at BETT).

    We could all go to a particular seminar with them and a t-shirt to the person who actually stands up and shouts "House"!!!
