Accidents will happen..


Yesterday was my first full day working from home on our web interests and i began the day by setting up my new gear, or ‘kit’ as Iain likes to call it. Wireless keyboard & mouse, 22″ monitor and printer/scanner. It was a bit like Christmas morning! The Screen was easy to set up and initially seemed fine but soon after i noticed a ripple running through the display, eeeek, not good! I carried on, set up the mouse & keyboard and then started to open the printer box! I thought the rattling noise was a loose ink cartridge in the box and oh how i wish it was. The scanner panel was in several sharp edged pieces when i got the packaging opened. Very dissapointing! The screen was not terrible but upon reflection it was unsatisfactory especially when it was obvious that the printer had got beaten up on its way to us! So, all that effort and now iv repackaged the whole lot for collection! Carrying such expensive goods to a destination is a difficult job and must be full of trials, the couriers could be at fault but perhaps they are not, other factors could have caused the damage. I could have taken delivery of it and sabotaged it unwittingly, which i should state i DID NOT!! Its a bit like how we handle the Gospel i think. What an important and valuable gift we have but do we handle it carefully or do we damage it whether knowingly or otherwise?

    Wick about the screen, but it lead to a pretty good blog post!

    Waves of empathy, mate: having recently experienced the turmoil of a hard drive failure (followed by a motherboard mishap when a replacement was being fitted!), reckon I have an idea of what you’re going through…

    Now, all I need next is to find someone to pay me to work from home…
