    You should know by now that networks are a jealous mistress and that any time off will either be preceded or followed by Massive Unexpected Failure to teach you the error of your ways. You can never leave them. You can have no other life, no other wife. They are yours and you are theirs and you will be happy forever, cocooned in the tangle of Cat5 in your switch rack, soft beeps and boops lulling you to sleep, whispering sweet binary nothings in your ears as you dream of silicon seas.

    That seems like the appropriate levels of internet tough guy.

    BETT is probably going to be hilarious...

    I may do! Recently joined a local gym and need some t-shirts to wear down it! Think of the awesome advertising opportunity that could be grabbed here!

    VeryPC Tee-shirts are like the latest Lynx deodorants. Makes you irresistible to the opposite sex, and quite possibly the same sex. Free advertising? Do it! Get it worn whilst you (VeryPC) Flex those pecs, and biceps!

    Doesn't look like they are, can't see them on the web, although to be honest from what I have heard about what it costs for BETT I think it's better they didn't if it means they can keep their pricing good. These companies have to pay for BETT somehow!

    I'll let Al reply to this mate, there's a nice box full of them, with some of the biggest tee-shirts I've ever seen in my life.

    Right @Rawns here's your prize reveal, and finally the end of the VeryPC Pen joke (the punchline wasn't worth the wait, trust me).



    Only 3 more daily prizes plus the star prize PlayStation 4 to go, but entries remain open until midnight on Wednesday night. To enter just PM me your professional contact details if you are a UK based IT manager/tech type, OR if you've entered a VeryPC competition on EduGeek before, you can just speak up in the thread that you want back in and we'll add you.

    Good luck for tomorrow everyone!

    Al

    @kearton and @mac_shinobi All prizes including T-shirts will be sent early November once STOCKTOBER2! is complete and we've got all our decisions in from the prize winners on whether they want to keep prize/swap for T-shirt etc.

    @Edu-IT From the booking a stand point of view you are probably correct. We will be knocking about generally though as it is a good opportunity to network and put faces to names (and even share a pint or two in one of the local hostelries).

    If our plans change though you can be sure that our EduGeek buddies will be the first to know.

    Al
