Today work confirmed what we have suspected for a while now that our team will merge with three others and there will be job losses.

I'll be applying for VS next week.

Sorry to hear about the inconvenience of this news but hopefully it will lead to bigger and better things in another job. :)

Bitten the bullet & ordered this today, I'm only really interested in the 1st book, I'm all about the 8-bit era of Gremlin, I was obsessed with Monty Mole & loved the Thing, Bounder & Jack the Nipper characters...even if I was a bit rubbish at the actual games.

Looking forward to it.

all these redundancies :? I dodged that bullet in my last place, leaving before I was moved, turns out the job they wanted to move me to has had redundancies, lots of stress related sickness etc.
