    Well done! Nice to have the choice of jobs but in the end you must pick the one best suited to your skills and with the best prospects for the future!

    Re: Golly Gosh...

    congrats and all....

    pity you can't have a mix of the two, A sounds an interesting job, but they're not using Proper Mailservers, whereas B hints at travel to exotic locations.

    decisions, decisions.

    Well done matey. What a choice you have, including the other school that makes 3

    As the others have said only you really knows which job is right for you. But i'm sure you'll be happy in whichever job you choose.

    @IndieGirl
    Congrats. Do the FCO have a site near MK or will you have to relocate and become a Metro Geek?

    Re: Golly Gosh...

    They have a site just outside MK in the middle of the countryside as well as their large presence in London.

    Tis very much like my days at HSBC where we worked in tellytubbyland [Google Earth S75 3DJ - you can't see it very well, but there are large green pipes sticking up out of the ground and there were rabbits on the landscaped grass!].

    Fortunately for me, it's very close to where I live and means that I will be able to get there within 20 minutes of a morning. I shall become an expert at dodging pheasants on the backroads though!

    Congrats IG, I am sure which / what ever you choose you will enjoy it, I must admit I love the fact I am so close to work, makes me think twice bout changing jobs, do i really want say a 1hr commute to work instead of 20 mins, but do whats best for you, your future and family.

    Re: Golly Gosh...

    Congratulations!

    I hope you're still going to be updating your blog! :P Its a great read and you really do portray your NM as a complete idiot! But then he's a Liverpool fan so what do you expect! <me>runs and hides</me>

    It must be so satisfying to know that you no longer have to work with him!

    If you knock Liverpool there is nowhere that you would be able to hide where we couldn't find you ...

    After all ... we are Geeks ... we run the world you know!!!

    I thought that geeks knew nothing about football?? :P

    To be fair however, I've been to Liverpool a few times (to see friends) and found it to be a top place with the friendliest people I've ever met! Its a Capital of Culture and all that too! (Is that enough to escape being hunted down!?) :twisted:

    Tee hee!

    Well of course I will update my blog, it may change it's title somewhat but I'm sure there are as many numpties in the FCO as there are in schools(!). I'm sure the NM will plague me like a bad smell for the first few months that I'm gone... I expect a phonecall at least every day........

    It is satisfying to know that I'll be getting out... problem I have now is that the security clearance could take a few months... so I'll be around for that bit longer.

    Well CM786 I'd agree with you that his failings point to his choice of football team, but then I'm just as bad (we have had some arguments over the year, I can tell you), what with being a Gooner 'n all that *runs & hides*
