    *clips midgets ear* :P

    Not, the "indiegirl option" is there because when I was doing the poll I remembered how indiegirl moaned about her boss being pathalogically untidy, in contrast to her.

    I'm untidy, but I'm not that bad.

    Re: How tidy is your office?

    So....
    so far the females are generally tidy, and the males are generally not....
    yes, my server room/office is tidy. I don't have any cupboards, only shelves.

    Let's hear it from the other females on this forum - tidy..or not?

    It is silly to say that being tidy means you don't have enough to do - if you have a place for everything it is just as quick to put it there as to throw it down anywhere.
    And if it isn't then your storage system needs sorting out.
    How long does it take you to find something if you have no idea where it is?
    I know where everything (including my towel) is. (most of the time!)

    Re: How tidy is your office?

    I have an office which is about 8' long by 3' wide. It has a worktop that runs nearly its length, so much so that the door doesn't fully open. It used to have the servers in it - but they have now been relocated to a cupboard under the stairs, but I still have a full rack cabinet in there...

    I did a big tidy at the beginning of the school year and within 3 days it was a tip again. I can honestly say that it isn't me doing it - even though I am the only person who works in there. It is all the staff coming and borrowing stuff and not returning it to where they got it from. They just dump it in a heap.

    I will admit that paperwork does take a very low priority in my view. I just pile it up and blitz it every couple of weeks.

    Right now, on my 2' wide bit of floor, I have a giant chassis switch, 2 empty canon XM2 camera boxes and some other junk. It takes skill to navigate to my chair.

    I keep on asking for a bigger office but there is not much space around so it doesn't look likely. I have been told though that if I can tidy my office and keep it tidy for a week then my boss will look harder at sorting out a proper office for me

    Re: How tidy is your office?

    well my *office/suite* is fairly tidy apart from the cupboard where everything including the server is stored which is semi-tidy - I can find most things but there's also a huge pile on the floor that needs sorting as well as on the top shelves but i can't reach the top shelves! so that's not going to get sorted anytime soon. my desk is tiny but that's untidy...and there's loads of boxes under the computer desks/iwb....i'm still dreaming of them building a proper ict suite!

    mine is an old kiln room and the kiln is still there (not used) but two of us work in there and not enough room to swing a cat mouse (just enough room to put me edugeek mug on the desk) but i keep meaning to tidy up.

    Re: How tidy is your office?

    We have this thing made from palster board on four sides and a door on one of em, with 6 servers in, the helpdesk and the Aircon unit which is set to a constant 13C, it is blumming freezing and noisy, we have asked for a new office, however management are typical management when it comes to ICT.

    We had a look at recycling costs for disposal as well under the WEEE convention, at present we were quoted an average of £5 a printer (Laser) £10 a CRT £8 (TFT) and £7 per base unit. It gonna be expensive!

    At this moment, I'm drowning in boxes and junk. Usually fairly clean, but I'm reaching my patience limit and eyeing the window.
