    Taking Impero as an example, What started off as one phone call has now turned into getting pestered every other week, even after telling them no multiple times. And although I've used them in the past at other schools, I think they've pretty much alienated my current school from the amount of nusiance it's beginning to cause. (Not trying to have a go at Impero here, just saying certain sales people don't seem to get what is annoying and alienating clients, and what isn't )

    Competition looks good though!

    Yes impero wont take no for an answer, I got a trial and it was not what we were looking for after testing, told the sales guy this but we still get calls pestering for business i too have decided not to go for impero at a later date due to the pestering.

    As for VeryPC I have a few friends who rate them very highly build quality and service so would be nice to see what they can offer for future purchases.

    Yes we all do it telling the receptionist that you are too busy to talk just to fob them off,(Yes you Ink Jets and Toners) but I do have a few suppliers who ring and it is nice to do business with no pressure.

    Thanks X. Promises are one thing, but it's how we behave that has the true meaning so thanks for giving us the opportunity to prove what we say.

    If you let me down, I will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

    This is a bit off-topic, but since you brought Obi-Wan into it, I thought I'd share.

    Discovered this blog post quite neatly addressing the problem of which order to watch the entire Star Wars saga in:

    Star Wars: Machete Order

    Oh darn - sorry for the false alarm, @hardtailstar

    Some points of clarification:

    • All winners will be announced on the thread, at which point we will ask you to choose your number publicly from the remaining unopened boxes. Then we'll announce the prize in your box.
    • Today's draw will be made at 3pm. We want to give as many people as possible a chance to enter before we draw the first winner.
    • From tomorrow onwards, unless stated otherwise, we'll do the draw at 11am to allow more time for the box choosing and prize announcement
    • Weekends: every Friday, we'll do a triple draw at 11am for a busy afternoon of box drawing and prize giving.
    • All box number choice submissions must be made on the thread and will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis. In the event that 2 Stocktober winners choose the same number, the earlier post will have precedence, regardless of the order in which the winners were initially chosen.

    Sorry for slipping into pseudo legalese there - just want to avoid any potential arguments.

    The clock is ticking. Less than 5 hours until the first draw - get your details submitted!

    Edugeek name, real name and professional contact details (telephone, email, address) to sales@very-pc.co.uk will get you in the mix.

    Thanks a lot

    Al

    The first draw will be made at 3pm today.

    That's just 20 minutes left people! Get your details to sales@very-pc.co.uk ASAP to enter.

    That's it! It's 3pm. No more entries for 1st October. You can still enter for tomorrow and the rest of the month, and everyone stays in the draw until they win.

    Today's winner will be announced in a few minutes.
