Dircon took away their pool table recently to replace it with
office space. G. I think all companies should have at least
something... it helps with team building, ummm, team moral and
I guess wasting time?

The MAME machine sounds very cool,  does it have authentic joysticks?

 I used to be a demon at track and field. The button bashing version.
 But it depended somewhat on the buttons used.

This is the button bashing version :)) 

Does look strange from the otherside of the table when someone is
bashing the buttons and concentrating

Hiring

2001-01-08 Thread David Hodgkinson


I mentioned this a London.pm last week but Reading Room are
hiring. Perl, database, Linux/Unix, designers, HTML slaves, producers,
project managers.

If you are "polishing up your portfolio site" right now and you want
to work somewhere manic, challenging and where you get to do lots of
neat stuff under your own steam, mail me a CV.

Also, if you know anyone good who got laid (off) recently, let me
know.

Ta,

Dave

(If I posted a variant on this already, I'm sorry, I was messing with
my .gnus file and Bad Things happened).
