    We need to get @Little-Miss in here. Maybe it'll cheer her up a bit.

    Also, I've done almost NO work today because of Stocktober2. [HEAR THAT AL! YOU'VE MADE ME DO NO WORK! I demand compensation... A PS4 should cover it. ]

    IT workers are the new gingers.

    Mainly because you can't make fun of ginger people any more due to discrimination laws.

    "Now the only thing you can think of, is the sound of my voice, man it sounds good. You know what else is good? Stocktober.

I am the Morgan Freeman." Then say your EduGeek username so we can keep track.

    Best impression decided by votes in the thread (you can't vote for yourself though) wins a big bag of Sweeties from the South Yorkshire branch of Wonka Enterprises (sweet warehouse near our factory). Anyone hanging out on the thread can cast 1 vote (don't wanna exclude our fellow sponsor @ICTDirect_Dave from the voting process).

    Same deal as Back to School. Max entires ever allowed is 3:

    Now to see if anyone has the guts to give it a shot!

    Soul inversion.

    You have negative soul, which means you actually leech the souls of everyone around you.

    That's all the active VeryPC Education customers based on a quick search query I did on our CRM (it may not be exhaustive, depends on my query skills).

    Seconded. We need more pink and purple to brighten the place up, and it never hurts to have a Nyan Cat hanging around.
