Beware the trainee with time on his hands and an Acorn manual on his desk

Re: Oh, the joys

Were in a classroom for a monthly meeting, lights turned down for a PowerPoint presentation. Saw a friend falling asleep, did a net send saying "Wake Up" as a joke.

Every PC in the room dinged, everyone snapped awake and looked around guiltily.

Oh God, I'd sent it to everyone in the room! Then panic: I'd sent it to everyone in the company!

Thank God there were only classrooms on the router, and ours was the only one in use.
