    How about a Digital Photo Frame for all the photos you want.

    For a whiteboard make sure it's a metal one so you can use fridge magnets on it as well.

    Get a few Geeky bits up. Dilbert strips are always good.

    Mobile Phone holder for the desk and some cool blue lights in and around places to make it look sci-fi.

    Or do what I've just done and knock a wall down to make a big office / workshop.

    Think it's been mentioned here before, but if you want to make your own really large posters from photos etc then try out Rasterbator (and no sniggering at the back!)

    Damnit, that was going to be my suggestion. Still waiting for the right moment to install some in various other offices

    USB missile launcher? Beyond that we haven't quite sorted posters for office. Well except network diagrams & notes. Beyond that one large white board for notes & bannings, fire escape route for when in panic & some shelves, mainly for my bike gear

    I might put up some of the lolcats as well

    Jiser, the office is down by 5E off the hall - custom built, very nice, and the computers were fine once I used the gigabit port on the switch for the server!

    I'm sittting here all alone listening to Classic FM and it is lovely and peaceful!

    You seem to have missed the most essential piece of kit any well stocked support department needs.

    Just put a sign up on the door, so it can be read from outside, and write on it 'Back in 10 minutes'

    If nothing else it will let you know who has trouble with the English language (strangely, that usually seems to be teachers!)

    You guys have missed the most important item, a bigger speaker system, paint covering the walls and cuddly toys to make it yours!

    I am also looking for some information posters about using IT - I did have some but they are very out of date - anyone point me to a link?

    We are waiting for some more to be made I believe for next month Witch send me you address and when see db next month I will keep kicking him until he puts said mug in the package I will have ready made up with your address and correct postage on.

    Tell them it changes to <COLOUR> when it detects stupid people or it that it tries to remove stupidity from them.

    Get some local kids to do a graffiti mural for you
