    What a day

    well, got to work today to find our IT systems failed with serious data corruption at 5.18pm yesterday. They are still down now (might not even be back by monday!) so I spent 7 hours sat in the office with everyone else today doing sod all. Talk about boring!!!!

    and I am pleased they let us leave early cos its flipping hailstoning heavily outside!! and I am waiting for some soaking wet children to run in.

    Hows everyone elses day been?

    LordNikon, not sure if i messaged you, vxracing t-shirt is perfect! thanks again - mate was not impressed when we arrived at buckmore park for karting last saturday, demanded i wear one of his shirts!

    sorry to hi-jack the thread!

    we had a friday like that 18 months ago. some major virus attacked the whole of the IT system, affecting our 4 offices in the USA, the office in germany, and also china.

    sat there for a day doing nothing!
