    I like the cold. Big heavy coats, hot cocoa, blazing log fires, snowball fights, ruddy cheeked children, football in the park, jumpers for goalposts...oops dropped into the Fast Show there...

    Re: Cold, so very cold....

    Cold? THis isn't cold ... cold is being stood in a 4' hole in the ground at 3.30 in the morning on Salisbury Plain in February on the last "cold" spell of the year when you know that there is only you and 3 others awake and the other 51 b*st*rds are fast asleep in their bags.

    And then your replacement not coming, and you are not relieved until 5am.

    I don't care how good the kit the army issues you with, when you are in the UK on exercise they never give you the good stuff, they save that for Norway or Canada because it never really gets below freezing (it was minus bloody 15!)

    Still ... if I need to warm up now I can just go and stand in the staff room and tell everyone that the network is down for maintenance and the waves of anger could heat the school for the rest of the day

    It does run in Firefox!! I view and manage it in Firefox. In IE you need to install an Active X control, but I don't have any problems with FF.
