    Hi, my name's...

    Tempted to give the long version but I'm not that bored..

    Hi, my name's Martin and I'm actually not based in a school per se but fell in to providing tech support and numerous other computer services to a school in the village of Hemingbrough (North Yorkshire) a few years back.

    Since then I've handled everything from procurement, long term budget plans and building, installing and mastering everything..

    Along the way I discovered Continuous Ink Supply systems (CISs) for inkjet printers when I was looking for a way to solve the schools mothballed printer facilities (ie: dust over printers that no longer work). Weirdly saving £3k in 2 years seemed like a good idea

    So, now my expertise in inkjet printers, refilling, cis's, etc.. is expanding and I run a few forums and program.. heck I even cook.. but can't iron a shirt for toffee..

    Ok... just be glad this is the short version... :P

    These are my views. You have the right to agree with them, you have the right to disagree with them, and you have the right to remain silent, but that's not going to move us forward, is it?
    But the right to remain silent and actually keeping them silent are 2 different issues lol

    btw thank god for tumble dryers and hanging them up straight afterwards

    Call me lazy :P lol

    How can I not respond after that last comment is dangled in front of me ...

    @gecko: heretic ... I do hope you are not talking about tumble drying shirts that you are going to iron.

    They should be hung in a warm, humid room to slowly dry, allow for the weight of moisture to drop most of the creases, but just until they are touch dry ... ie, with a little bit of moistore left in them.

    Try not to hang them on the line to dry, the wind removes the moisture too quick, making then difficult to iron ... and under no circumstances should you wash and tumble dry smart trouser (cotton, wool, nylon or mixtures)

    Wash and hang ... iron whilst damp.

    And before anyone says anything ... I will get a life ... probably during the summer hols (holidays now booked ... a few days in Belfast and a long weekend in London)

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    have to agree with Tony on most of that. We very rarely use our tumble drier. in summer I'll pop them in for 5 minutes or so, just to take the harshness out of towels which have hung in the sun (well, this is Rochdale) too long. And please, don't use fabric conditioner with towels either, they may feel soft but they lose up to 23% of their ability to absorb moisture. Fact.
    Unlike Tony, I do hang my shirts out on the line because I like the smell of freshness that no conditioner can give. Though I do like to bring them in and iron them while damp. They probably won't look as crisp as Tony's shirts, but it's a compromise I'm happy to make.
    Is there an ironing wiki?

    I think we need a whole ironing sub-site!

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    @Mark: I think you mean well, but my thoughts are that a sub-site will lead to an ironing "ghetto", where we can be hidden away for fear of causing embarassment. In fact, I'm getting all steamed up about this. strike while the iron is hot, I say...and this is where it all dribbles away as I run out of steam. I don't want to leave you board, but creased with mirth. You may say that we shouldn't hang our dirty washing out for all to see, though you're probably thinking that now is a good time to strip the wallpaper from the back bedroom.
    Now then, who sits down to iron, and who stands? do you have a favourite time to do it? Saturday afternoons listening to the football commentary on the wireless suits me.

    Russ, it's nothing to be ashamed of. I think you should come out of the closet all fresh and ironed.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Thanks Ric, I appreciate your kind and generous support. It is wrong, but I liken our plight to the female suffragette fighting for emancipation in England, or the coloureds of America in the '50's and '60's, and later their soul mates in apartheid South Africa, striving for equality. Of course, there are some people who will never concede that we are equal under the law, but hopefully, the weight of our argument will sway the doubters.
    As Cole Porter said, "They all laughed at Christopher Columbus, when he said the world was round." (please, I know it wasn't Christopher Columbus, but cut the man some artistic slack).
    I think our next task is to contact bob Geldof and Bono....

    Perhaps we could have some sort of "Iron Aid" to raise awareness of the highly political issues surrounding ironing?
