    Welcome back Paul.

    You've missed pages and pages of total ****** and I think i've changed my name 2 or 3 times since you were last here :think: I used to be "Westle", then "W3sty", now "Westy". Just incase you didn't know who I was ;)

    Ads has fallen by the work way side, the same as Solly. Work In Peace brothers, Amen.

    I think I'm next as I'm moving desk tomorrow and will have to knuckle down a bit more but we'll see :whistle2:

    Still there for now.
    Been given information about a possible future redundancy and told to look for work with in the company or take the money and run.
    I've been signed off work for 2 weeks, so i'm going to spend that time looking for work.

    Mum and dad just paid out for my sisters wedding, lucky for them she wanted a small one.
    Reception and a mass piss up.
    Sorted.

    Two of my mates have had redundancy notices - luckily the one at the RAC got one of the lower level jobs that they offered some of his grade, means a 2K pay drop and drop of company car spec.

    I hope something comes up for you.

    Thanks mate - A3 isn't too bad - but had a bit of a boost leak - turned out to be one of the forge hoses hadn't quite clicked home fully on one side, so got the car up on my extended ramps in the garage and fixed that - but found that one of the undertray screws had penetrated one of the Forge boost hoses (O/S one to the intercooler). So did a temp fix and then emailed a picture to Forge, next day they dispatched a complete replacement set of hoses (minus the couplers).

    Hoping to get it up on the ramps again at the weekend to sort that. Made the Mrs laugh by storing the replacement hoses in the airing cupboard with the boiler so that they are warm and pliable.

    I've got an old set of drive up ramps, but the car is too low to drive up on them (managed to scrape the lower valence up both sides finding out) so I've bolted half a scaffold plank to each ramp to make them longer with less steep a ramp.

    Works well for jobs like boost hoses, not keen on working under the car on axle stands, ramps are OK with the axle stands under as well for backup :whistle2:

    working from home?

    I want to work from home.
    I'd be so much more productive than I am when I'm in work.

    No in the office today, the server was at a client's office in Stoke-on-Trent, I can and do work from home from time to time.

    It can be distracting working at home, but if I need to do any specific tasks I do find it easier to concentrate, also useful when configuring new VPN solutions for our homeworkers. Although I can go out on one ADSL and back in on another, sometimes it is nice to actually test it for real.

    Nice.
    I can't work from home due to the network we support.
    Be nice if I could.
    its allot less distracting at home.
    Work is really annoying at times for distractions.

    Morning all.

    Great curry last night with the Mrs, 2 courses each with Coffee, 2 pints, 2 soft drinks and a couple of Sambuca shots with the bill - £34 plus tip.

    Hope everyone is OK today. Bit grey and misty down on the Southcoast.

    Stickers?

    That wont help with the work environment being distracting for work.
    Forum or internet has nothing to do with that.
