Team Talk: What are you looking forward to most in 2018?

The Christmas lights are twinkling, the mince pies baked and the egg nog has been poured. With Christmas just around the corner, we turn our thoughts to what 2018 may bring. Marc Stridgen (Tech support and kettlebell enthusiast) I'm just looking forward to 2018 being less of a mixed year, as 2017 has been a bit of a bad one on the side of family, yet good with regards work and personal…

Team Talk: If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?

This month we ask a very simple question that got our team thinking hard. “If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?” Now, this doesn't assume that there is a disaster, so you don't need to think about things like food and water. It also doesn't need to include humans or pets. This is also not a "Desert Island" question so survival tools are not required. This g…

QOTW: This week we talk home automation

This week, we were inspired to discuss home automation after @Joel R raised the question in a topic.

QOTW: Let's talk about music

This week's question is inspired by liquidfractals's reply to last weeks question. What is your favorite music and which bands would you have loved to see live? <br> We learned many things; mostly that our team have poor taste in music.

QOTW: Name the one thing you cannot live without

This week, the team have been discussing the one thing they can not live without. Some found this a hard question to answer. What is the one thing you cannot live without? <br> A tricky question for some. Could you pick just one thing? Brandon (Senior tech support and development) My family is my saving grace and escape, and even though they're (collectively) the ones typically c…

QOTW: What was your first computing memory?

This week, the team have been discussing their very first computing memory. This will probably reveal a lot about the age of some of our team. We recently worked out that when Matt and Charles first met and started producing community software, some of the younger members of our team were still in primary school. What is your first computing memory? <br> An easy question for tech-heads as …

QOTW: What is your favorite TV show?

Welcome to the first of a new regular series we're calling "Question of the week". Each week, we'll ask our team a question and share the replies. To kick things off, we posed a very simple question: What is your favorite TV show right now? <br> We may have over-estimated how much TV the average geek watches. Here's what our team said. Brandon (Senior tech support and development…
