    The bit about punch cards makes me long in the tooth! Been the only female amongst nutters for long enough to cope!

    Luckily our biggest ironing enthusiast is busy at BETT, so the coast is clear temporarily!

    Just a different way of doing things....

    Makes you think things through before you do them... and then spend time agonising when you realise you've submitted a job that's wrong and won't be able to correct it for an hour or so!

    The kit's a bit more portable now! I wouldn't go back!

    Back in your cage, Jake

    Great to see another female. I'm also from a technical background and certainly know what it means to be the only woman amongst loads of male nutters

    So, given that one woman equals about, um, 500 men, that means that there is now more of us (in brain power anyway) than you!!

    Wish I'd taken my ironing to BETT now

    Nice to see more females joining, Andie your job sounds so similar to mine I almost thought it was me posting!
    This board is brill for advice, also I've found myself getting moist eyes at the 'I'm a new Dad, sleepless nights' postings recently (must be my age) I'm still looking for postings about I'm a 'mum of teenagers, they wake you up when they come home' postings so I can join in with them!
