That would work if I had a door.... Think Les Nessman's office except that I have pony walls.

We have the dumbest system. Magnetic name plates that can be moved to the next door, or the desk Assignment flap .

Here comes the dumb, The Desk numbers are moveable, just a U-shaped peace of plexi.

So people move, and they take their darned desk number, not just the magnetic plate.

And the building is renowned by being a labyrinth...I use a map but I have suggested putting GPS emmiting devices inside every computer.

Back on topic, Here is the Name "Tim" in Binary:

010101000110100101101101

Here it is in Hex:

54696D00

And In Octal:

124151155

I seem some mighty fine graphic opportunities there :wink:

Hey, sure, I'm a geek... but I'm ok with that! :)

Now, for my favourite time of the week - Friday afternoon where I get to post pictures of Ralph/Frank/Sam/Timotree/Juanita/Jesus/<insert your name here>!

This week, still not much progress on the 4th leaf - I'm starting to get concerned as there was so much growth in the past 2 months, and now it seems to be slowing down. But the 3 big leaves are getting much bigger - they're now almost at full size. The trunk is also getting a little meatier, which is a good sign. I'm going to pick up a spray bottle of the weekend to mist the leaves, so hopefully that will have a positive effect.

Ralphie boy looks very good considering you've been feeding him stimulants ...lol ... I think he will enjoy his new position and don't forget to rotate him so he grows up nice and straight.
