    Nothing wrong with Penthouse articles and nothing wrong with not owning a desktop!

    I used to be in the same boat (literally, that's a clue as to what line of work it was). They were pretty paranoid about control of info, even though much of the stuff was fairly generic - the phones we got were Blackberry for their more secure system, with the cameras disabled, and greyed out windows in the offices...

    Now in the same line of business - Supply Chain Management, but in the water industry, lots of being out the office, so sometimes can browse here if I'm off somewhere or on my extremely flexible lunch time.

    I am a business development manager for a real estate. We have 2 offices and 1000 properties to manage ranging from your small 1 bedroom units upto $4million, 6 bedroom waterfront properties and I love it.

    Deal with all walks of life, different properties and every day is different.

    In my spare time I fly fpv quads (drones to the uneducated lol ) like this to get rid of the stress from work.

    We're not, we don't even accept donations (unless you're raking in hundreds-of-thousands in donations it's a hell of a lot of work donations and small amounts of money aren't really that helpful)!

    Although you'd be bang on about most nationals in this country. In most of Europe once an charity reaches a certain size (turnover) it becomes an NGO (non-governmental organisation) which is subject to much higher levels of transparency. In this country most large charities have lost site of their core aims and exist simply to keep existing.

    I'd have no time for it anyway, :D, between the two garages I work at we've got far too much work for the next 6 months, :D, can barely find any time to work on my own 2 cars, :D

    And as it's a bank holiday coming up, everythings started going wrong.

    Yh, It seems replacing a 1.4 Corolla VVT-i engine isn't very appealing based on the mechanics I've been speaking to.

    What's the point of having two of most of your organs if you can't flog half of them for a sweet ride?

    I've been here 16 years and owned around 16 gaming PCs... perhaps I went overboard in those first 6 years :worried:
