    lol

    could you kind of re-arrange the base units and move them to the back of the monitors so it will hide them so the ones without badges are hard to find? The Optiplex’s can stand-up on there sides pretty sturdy

    Good idea but that means doing some work! They're all cable-managed and there's no slack with any of the cables. The Regimental Sarge Major would only start prodding around and he'd notice. He always does.

    Yeah I do but at the end of the day we're responsible for making sure everything looks A1 and for the open evening it has to be +A1... :x

    But why should you get the blame for what someone else has done?

    We have some machines like that. The first thing I did was take all the badges off myself to save them the trouble. I have even taken the little door off in some classrooms.....

    We'd get birched, pilloried, then left out for the crows to eat if we did anything like that.

    Stuck on with superglue? Snip of that little tab on the back, use Araldite, and lots of it, so they can't get a purchase on it!

    Sod it, leave them and just tell them that this is what you have to live with thanks to the little vandals. Tell them to just look on it as practice for their ASBO's.

    However, back to reality - any admin' Optiplexes you could borrow doors/badges from temporarily?

    Good idea but then the Admin staff would get a bollocking for their computers looking shoddy. Really. It's that sort of place.

    Re: Dell Badges Wanted

    Could you not put the lamiantes on, then stick a small sqaure of perspex over the top, as the badges are slightly recessed?

    Yeah that's what we're going to do on Open day/Eve, but we've already done it once this week and the ankle-biters stabbed them with pens and stuff yesterday. Tsk, children.

    I've got some hanging around here , how many where you after?
    They dont have the green clips on the back though so they would need gluing onto the case.

    I mean some hard perspex over the top of that....you'd have to push a pen pretty hard to get through even 5mm thick
