    Bit of a crappy ass title but I could not think of any thing that would sum up the idea of this thread.
    Basicly a place to chat cod ***** and talk about random stuff that happened to you that does not fit in any other thread or section but you would like to share any way, Just like a pub.

    My day so far as been dull, just like every other day over the last 2 months.

    So far I have unlocked 4 accounts, transfered 200ish megs of data, replaced the backup tape, broke my chair by trying to bunny hop it across the office and been tasked with ultimate responsability of turning the presentation suit on next week.

    From now till home time I think i'll be erm.....Playing office Golf.

    At least that dude S3girl gave us all something to laugh/ chat about.

    I think your office antics are inspirational though mate, and i'm most impressed with the random ideas you create.

    Do what my brother did when he had a slow job; started his own website, and when it made enough money he just up'd and left. Now earns quite good money from it.

    I usually find hiding peoples mouses and removing space bars from keyboards/mixing buttons around to be quite entertaining.

    I hid the lady who sits opposite me's mouse and replaced it with her glasses case she didn't twig for ages, it was amazing.

    The lads in the other IT office do alot of that and shares.
    But they have access to unrestricted internet and i'm stuck with the stupid locked down ****.
    I did think about it but I dont have the attention span to maintain it.

    I completed it now and the season one. I'm now playing some 3D snowboarding game.

    I'm the only one in my office, It should seat about 8 people but they have all been moved around. So ts just me and my boss but he's away. When he is here he spends most of his time reading the news paper or sleeping on the sofa. lol

    Me and a friend where I use to work swapped all the name badges over on every desk over 3 floors (400ish people) and swapped the floor signs over for the lift lobby area.
    so 4 became 6, 6 became 5 and 5 became 4.
    O and switched all the coffee machines off.
    Funny as hell on april fools, untill we got a writen warning for it. lol

    Hard at work in my office. Spent all morning carbon wrapping my door trims, now need to figure out how to take the dash bits off. Just had some food and currently have Overhaulin on in the background.

    Tomorrow I have around two hours reserved for some gun cleaning and reloading

    It never sucks working from home :rock:

    It's 1:30am here in Singapore and I'm in a hotel bed alone. In the lift on the way up to my room there was an old guy, even he had managed to pull a Singaporean chick in her 20's!
    The closest I've got to some action is an approach from a human whose sex is debatable.

    Ok, just removed the front ashtray lid and oh my god its a leap of faith, if you have done it you will understand.

    But this was my third attempt throughout the day, just couldn't commit to applying the neccesary force to do it.

    Its been a long day for me... Set off for outer London at the crack of a sparrows fart. Got to site eventually after sitting in traffic most of the morning.
    Threw the system in and did a little training then back on the road pointing north.

    Half way home our lass rings to tell me she in court next month for fly tipping;) Turns out in December I had to rip the engine tray out under a Mway bridge due to it coming loose and half of it was up in the the drivers arch.
    Anyway long story short i was piss wet, covered in ****, hands cut to feck from ripping it out. And with no room to put it in the car it got hoofed under the bridge. Went back the next day to get it and it was gone. Obviously some old got driving past thought I had dragged it out of the boot and dumped it.

    So not only have I just payed out £80 for two crappy bits of black plastic out lass is flapping thinking she's looking at a 2k fine.

    My day just gets better. still no flesh updates in pic of Yr missus !!

    I wonder if they caught you on CCTV ripping it off and dumping it, If thats the case, they might have CCTV of you going back to pick it up?
    would suck balls if some git reported you.

    Good luck with the court case.

    2 hours in work and nothing happening, 3 hours left to go with even more chance of nothing else happening.
    what a good day this is going to be.
    Boss is in today so i can't do any thing fun.
    I might go off and play with some simulators though but i tend to get carried away and spend hours in there. lol

    Can't wait till the weekend though, got a compressor to deliver to father, see an old friend, part shopping, little bit of car stripping and seeing the misses for the first time in 2 weeks. Thats my sunday taken care of. lol

    OK - this morning (It's now 09:47 AM) I have spent watching Exmerge.exe extracting (in clumps of 2 GB because it sucks) a 17.8 GB mailbox from Microsoft Exchange.

    All because some retard doesn't listen. Twat.

    Happy days - this is going to be a long job - on the plus side, a good excuse to ignore all the other user's problems!! :)

    Well after ringing the council this morning it turns out it was some old victor meldrew wanna be who reported me.
    But not only for the engine tray, oh no it seems I'm being blamed for dumping a load of flea bitten carpet too! as it was found in close proximity to the engine tray apparently... So it's now a waiting game to see if I still need to attend the hearing.

    F@€king do gooding tosser.

    As for today iv been sweating my ass off all morning in a dental centre. So much for that Friday feeling.

    Just got back from an interview with a Software Development company... thought it went well, the test I had to do before the interview was quite tough and he nailed me on a few programming scenarios, one of those 'unsure how it went' interviews.

    To make it better though I got an email from Nissan inviting me to an Assessment Centre for a internship next Friday :)
