    I wonder if the 4 ways that were left on the stand were yours then Tom? I know that we seemed to have a deluge of them when we were breaking it up.

    Sorry to see you go, Tony, you've been an important part of EduGeek from the start. Hopefully you'll still be around to post sometimes.

    Good luck for the future.

    Thanks for the support everyone has given over the last 3 1/2 years and it I am glad I am part of a thriving community.
    Job's a good one Tony. Enjoy your new post and thanks for all the help and support over the past few years.

    S'alright Paul, this just means we can beat him with a stick more often locally.

    that's a bloody long discussion.........


    sad to lose a great admin, but glad that a good friend has moved onto a role that allows him to show his skills to greater effect.


    and for those worried about giving him a gift - we'll post a video showing his pure, unbridled joy at the chocs Dos_box gave him soon....

    He has a serious muffin fetish too.

    EDIT: Just realised how many ways that could be taken.

    Further clarification (it's not even funny anymore) in chocolate muffins from Tesco's!

    Tony, you will be much missed as an Admin... however, if you are still posting, I think you'll still be able to break up the squabbles with your well-reasoned common-sense posts!

    As they remove EduAdmin from your name... what will it be replaced with?

    member or edusupporter isn't enough... edufriend, eduknowledge... ?
