    We have a glide here. They're really nice.

    Fast booting and silent. [Even when they're RM-ified.]

    I've learned a few touch screen commands (or "gestures" as kids these days call them!) as a result today so I'm pleased And yeah, damn quick to start. Will probably build it onto the network soon to see how it handles GPOs but that's more of a win8 concern than the unit itself. Sturdy, fast, sexy. Can't knock it really, considering it's competition from RM (how much???) Apple (you MUST be joking!) and ViglURRUUUUUUGHn.

    Yayyyy! Great to get the news on the thread like this. We can act all casual when Tom and Kiefer (btw) get back saying we don't need to know how the meeting went, 'cos we already know!

    Doesn't take much to amuse me...

    I know!

    That's what we'll do! It's a little thing, but because of EduGeek we now get to do it. Ooooooh, they'll be so confused for about 3 seconds, it'll be brilliant!

    I'm not even being sarcastic. This is all it takes to make my day.

    Or both.

    Just need to get the official "I want my prize" or "I want the T-shirts" PMs sent and received back so we can organise what is being sent out. We'll give everyone the chance to nominate their delivery address and give them notice on the arrival date too.

    I want to do it properly via PM as it's easier to keep track that way - it's too easy to miss stuff when scrolling back through the thread. Keep an eye on your inbox.

    Cheers,

    Al

    Not right at this exact time, no, but we keep growing and getting busier, so you never know!

    Hardly anyone ever leaves VeryPC once they start working here, so our staff turnover rate is really low, but the family has had a few new members recently.

    You know what, I just went on the website to get the address (Colin seemed to think Liverpool to Lincolnshire was "not too far" so I was going to Google Maps it to show Just How Far) and I just noticed that Joss Whedon works for them as well.

    Joss Whedon:

    (I concede that there may be a clue that I swapped the names round on my captions for the purposes of Humour, if you look closely enough)

    I have nothing to add to this. Pure class.

    There's also Agent 47 on customer service, apparently.

    Agent 47:

    "Tom":

    "Customer service trouble shooter extraordinaire" suddenly becomes quite a menacing turn of phrase.

    I tell you what, there's loads of fun to be had here.
