    Currently I'm 'resting' as they say in the acting trade. Have worked in IT for 20+ years and have just returned from New Zealand for health reasons - hence my current predicament.

    Thought about making replacement button fronts for all the buttons that's wearing out in the VAG range?

    I'm meant to work in IT but never seem to have much on so i just sit at my desk going a little bit more mental each day.
    Plus I ***** and moan about the lack of training they give us cause I think they think we are a lost cause and up for redundancy soon.
    Any one got any jobs going for a future out of work IT chap, ex-car breaker, ex-kitchen fitter, creator of random stuff with SC clearance?

    Bit of a networking thread this, could be useful to someone at some point.

    I'm a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Therapist (NHS)... work with members of the public who are experiencing any of the following: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep disorders, OCD, PTSD.. I'm your man for that.. volunteer on the side for the Samaritans and part-time house wife as I let her put her feet up and record the football... not normal for a bloke is that?

    ASN comes in as a distraction and hobby as love cars and gets me away from my work. Love the site and met some great people off here like AndyMac who sorted my JL stealth install.

    Well, lets just say when i get a letter from Moorcroft, it may have YOUR name on it ;)

    I work for 3 major and 3 smaller debt + asset recovery agencies. To you, if you are unfortunate enough to know, a DCA.
    My job involves visiting customers with overdue accounts and either skip tracing, re establishing a payment arrangement/settlement, or instructing bailiffs to attend.
    Generally I could be the last chance to fix a breakdown in communication before court enforcement.

    How many of you hate me now LOL.
