    I'm leaving

    It's been a bit of a long process, but I've finally escaped the clutches of Education and got a new job!

    I will be leaving the school that I attended as a student for 5 years, and worked as an IT Technician for a further 8 years. From January, I will be working as a Web Developer in Newcastle

    There are numerous reasons for my decision to move on - no progression route, the school being unable to fully support the direction and area I want to focus on, the unrealistic salary, the demands, expectations, lack of common sense and forward-planning from staff... and so on. I feel this is the right move for me, and the right time to do it.

    But fear not! Edugeek won't be getting rid of me that easily (sorry to disappoint MK-2) as I'll definitely be sticking around

    ZeroHour, just a warning, if he stays, I'm employing my most leet hacking skills to take this place down........any chance you could give me the admin password as a bit of a head start? (what, too soon?)

    Congrats though, I do know the feeling. On a slightly more selfish note, does this mean classroombookings will stop development?
