    I would like to say I was a comedy genius but turns out I am the world's biggest idiot.
    The phrase "Hoist by my own petard" springs to mind.

    I can't believe you made such a silly speling mistake!

    And spelling 'pedantic' wrong as well.
    Argh I even spelled it wrong at the first attempt at this post. I'm having a lie down now.

    No. They're a bunch of miserable sods as has been clearly demonstrated throughout the entire month of Stocktober...and beyond!

    Hahahahahaha! Just got onto your postcode! Such is the greatness of @VeryPC Al, they even named the postcode after him!

    Actually, I'm so committed to VeryPC that I changed my name to match the postcode!

    My original first name is Bob, short for Bobinson.

    Oh and another thing. Had a visit from @VeryPC_Colin_F on Wednesday, who came bearing sweeties and was very complimentary about our school.

    He also left me a smart folder and some VeryPC pens, although I think the pens are broken because the screen and keyboard has come off.

    Did that make your original full name Bobinson Robinson or did you just have one name like Madona or McLovin?

    I was amusing myself waiting for someone to realise the full name is "Bobinson Robinson", but I love the idea of a rubbish celebrity simply known as "Bobinson". It sounds like what the Chuckle Brothers might have been called if they were just one bloke with a big (misplaced) ego.

    And that's awesome too. I think I'll be all of the above thank you!

    Glad you like it. Always feels nice to send out customised PCs. Seems like they are off to become a true part of that school/business when we do.
