    What can you do!!!

    I have recently re-joined a company I used to work for. In there main meeting room they had a Barco (I believe a 808 Graphics) of about 6years vintage. Before I re-joined I had heard that they were moving and were not planning to take the Barco to the new office. I let it be known that I would be interested in the projector and would even pay a reasonable sum for it. When I went to see them to discuss contract details I noticed the projector sitting on the floor of the meeting room. Again I mentioned that I would like to buy it. Knowing that the would have no idea of the potential worth I offered £200. My new boss said that hadn't decided what to do with it yet.

    Anyway I started working there last week, now at their new offices. When I asked around about the projector as I hadn't spotted I was told they had thrown it in the skip!!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad: Arggggh what idiots.



    Sorry just needed to get the frustration of my chest!

    Picture pops in to my head of Roland with a shopping trolley walking down street with bits of Barcos, copper pipe, electrical wire and conduit hanging out...
