About ten to nine. Dunno who the DJ was, they've got special Christmas shows on, so it wasn't the normal ones, but they were on about the petition, and they said "set up by some guy called Janusz (didnt catch your surname.... Wren? Ray?)"

I'm at work ( :( ) its what we listen to, until everyone else is out of the office, then I crack XFM on.

Though having said that, they've been gone about half an hour, and I've still got R2 on :doh:

I like that I'm going back to work on Monday after 2 weeks off on holiday!

I know what you are thinking but the reason is that on Monday I will tie up the loose ends on a job offer and get to hand in my notice!!

Cheers, finally aFter nearly 12 years I am leaving the NHS! Really good offer from Sky although it is a bit strange taking a job when I am yet to actually meet anyone from Sky face to face! First interview was over the phone and the 2nd was done over skype!

Who owns Skype? I'm pretty sure it's a rival to Sky anyway...

Or you could have gone down to London, makes sense for them.

to be honest it's a procurement role so saving money is key, using skype is a lot cheaper than either flying all the candidates to london or having a director out the business for a day by flying her up from london!

My new job title is pretty decent too, I'm going to be a Procurement Operations Analyst!

Great work. Does the new job mean a move to London, or was it just that the people responsible for hiring are based there?

Job is half an hour or so outside Edinburgh, the main procurement team of 30+ staff are in london but a new team of 3 analysts and a manager are based up here. It was my managers boss that was doing the Skype interviews from London.

I'd like you to write me a 5000 word essay about how you feel about assignments, and to make it extra fun you can only use the words "and", "the", "I" and "because" twice :D

They need to merge the Bioshock story, with Bioshock 2 Mechanics and Bioshock 3 graphics.... that would make me very happy
