HelenOT, you need to work for our firm. Infinity Solutions won't even take my money for private jobs or long distance phone calls. They reckon the effort of billing it out is greater and costs more on average than just paying for the usage themselves. There are no restrictions on the colour printer, either the colour copier or the B&W equivalents. Neither do they restrict toll calls, and only the calls are tracked - by Telecom, not the company.

Last year I called the US five times in two days for personal reasons. The call cost total was about $350. The accounts receivable clerk asked me if they were personal or not - but so she could bill the cost out to the customer if it was business. I mentioned this to the CEO and his comment was "buy me a coffee and we'll call it quits". So I did.

Needless to say, we have a low staff turnover and when people do leave it's not because they feel that the firm doesn't care about them.

Toooo true! But I was so glad I had them when my darling Chinese Crested, Pepsi, died. I have one of those multi opening picture thingamees and Pepsi's pictures in the openings. It sits among my family photos. No apologies for that she was "one of the family."
wow

Dear Seian: would it be too great a drain on your supply to talent, to devise a simple but humorous graphic of some sort to celebrate the event?

I also don't know how to get to, or into this storehouse of pictures and words. A note please, in private or on the board? Would grandmother's recipe for crazy cake be bribe enough?

Ali - I'd be more than happy to help you on the graphic - it's one of the things I do after all! So, if you want to send it to me (wonderworks@iname.com) and I'll see if I can add anything... or not, as you wish!

BTW - I use PhotoShop 4 for most of this type of creative stuff!

Someone just did today, but thank you! This will be imortalized, in case I do something stupid like delete private mail.

[looks to see if this post will finally made it out of "Newbie"]
