    I love it! ROTFL!

    Hi folks,

    Here is today's video, the first triple draw Friday of MADvent. 3 prizes, 3 winners, watch now:



    REMEMBER, entries are still being taken. If you're in the UK and work in IT support, PM me your professional details to be included, OR, if you have entered a VeryPC competition before, all you need to do is post in the thread that you'd like to join in and we'll look up your details from before and add you. Either way is good.


    Good luck for tomorrow everyone!


    Al

    Ahh, yes, but it's up to a certain ninja (who shall remain nameless so as not to spoil the surprise) to deliver them in a daring-do fashion.

    My biscuits did not have my name on the label. I just had to wrestle them from the secretaries. There is some serious ill feeling in the office now.

    But I have biscuits so I don't care

    I have to apologise about this. As a marketing/silly man, rather than one of our professional shipping guys, I did not realise that the weight limit on the stamps used to send out the Stock2ber thank you sweeties was 100g, and unfortunately each package came to roughly 125g, so some of you may be getting demands from the post office to pay to receive your overweight deliveries. Don't pay it please - there are only a small handful of chewy sweets in each envelope, so it is not worth it.

    If you get one of these demands from the post office, or your package has not turned up yet, please do let me know though so I can get some more sent to you with the appropriate postage on this time!

    Sorry again,

    Al

    *sheepish*

    P.S. @hardtailstar @Little-Miss I'll get your replacements sorted for you.

    Correct - these are a legacy from our days of selling exclusively through the channel, when you couldn't buy direct from VeryPC. We were recruiting resellers and giving them out with the welcome pack. We still have a few left so we give them out to you guys at sales meetings so you have something to remember us by.

    In retrospect, those were a poor purchase - they looked cool, but after a bit of use, they would fail to make contact with the USB pins when you slotted them in. We'll be looking for something a bit more robust next time we stock up on branded goodies.

    How have I only just found out about this???? Can you please count me as in!

    Also, while I am at it has anyone noticed the striking similarity between Firefly/Avengers/X-Men Comics legend Joss Whedon and the technical director Simon Bown??? Proof below...
