    My OH never wants to hear about work either, but then again I don't find the finer points of Accountancy particularly exciting either!

    It's the same in our house as well, but in fairness my other half is a Teacher so it's not often I want to hear about the lessons she's been teaching :-) although having said that she does come in handy when pitching ideas for our school :-)

    I don't have a Mrs. So I don't have this problem.


    Although I do have family that tell me I'm annoying them when I start talking about work.

    I think everyone gets it to some degree. Good thing you have us Edugeeks to talk to.


    So... Did you do anything interesting today?

    Jem's an Ex Edutech, now a webdev, and harmony is achieved by not mentioning work..plus I don't want to teach DD bad language..such memorable lines as "aargh! What a day. "x" has been a total cockerel today. Don't ask me about "y" either - bunch of self pleasurers" etc..

    I normally vent it on the car..nothing shifts stubborn bolts like a breaker bar with some annoyance behind it..heh.

    Me and the missus quite often talk about work. Some Friday nights we turn the tele on, crack open the wine, and get talking about what has happened that week at work. Then we find it's midnight and can't remember anything from what has been playing in the background on the tele.

    Good stuff, wouldn't have it any other way. My missus is my best friend so if I can't vent to her, who can I vent to?!

    mrwITch and I talk about work all the time - as a geek himself he is very helpful and I try to be equally as helpful to him - sometimes I don't understand what he is going on about (what IS a software technical architect anyway!) - but I do my best.

    I'd love to have someone to talk to about work - unfortunately no one I talk with on a regular basis (face-to-face) can follow what I'm doing for more than a few minutes at most. It doesn't help that that includes the people I work with, so I have to talk in a simplified overview style and can't just chat about the technical aspects with anyone.

    Except us, of course! - I know that isnt face-to-face but maybe you could meet up with someone local to you for a drink and a techie chat?

    Good point.

    I've actually managed to find a .NET user group nearby, and will be going to that next week so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Otherwise of course, anyone in the Woking/Guildford area who can put up with a few rants about security practices, SharePoint, user management and suchlike in exchange for a beer or two?

    Not quite right Domino.

    I suspect STA actually stands for Star Trek Anorak!
