    when i played it i found it was only half the film and it was animated so it doesnt use as much disk space as a normal one, it was still 1.2 gigabytes though

    It would probably be the best thing you could ever do!!

    Get contracting, so when they **** you off you can turn round and say, "**** you ****head, take your ******* job and shove it up your arse!"

    Oh the satisfaction!!!!

    The cheaky ********!!! They come here and tell us we have to cut costs by 15% to survive beyond next year and they are paying people to think this sort of stuff up!!!!

    This was on the BAE Intranet.

    BAE SYSTEMS - Upper and Lower Case

    As a result of the project we have recently undertaken to refresh our brand identity, we have evolved a number of elements, including the use of our company name.

    The BAE Systems name should now be used as follows:

    BAE SYSTEMS must always be written in CAPITALS within headlines, headings, sub-headings
    BAE SYSTEMS must always be written in CAPITALS within the positioning statement

    However,

    BAE Systems may now be written in upper and lower case within the body of all copy or text
    BAE Systems may now be written in upper and lower case in the bullet points of a presentation

    But,

    BAE Systems should never be abbreviated in any way
    ?Systems? should never be written with a small ?s?

    Too true Rods.

    The problem when your at BAE is that you think its the be-all and end-all, but in fact its not - compared to the equivalent American companies its small peanuts! And in the wider Engineering world its even smaller. Plus comparatively speaking the pay is dire!

    But then again it is comfortable, so its whatever floats your boat.
