    Being it was my 2nd time going to the place,it was really good. Much better weather but worst is i kept going into sting nettles and crap lol and a lot more bruises overall than last time just because the balls bounced off the suit.
    And i had a good team dominating most games.

    Or you could get picked on everyday for the next two/four weeks because youre not gonna be there long. Wouldnt surprise if they did. Newfags always get the abuse.

    And abuse is every much part of the whole experience. Newfags always get treated the worst. and whats even worse then a newfag is a newfag on a 2/4 week trail.

    They are gonna ride your booty hard

    Ive never been in the job where they didnt ride the newfags hard. thats when you gotta make friends in higher places. they remember your face the next time and wont lump you in the same pile as the newfags.

    I know a guy who was studying Media & broadcasting at Uni. He won an internship at the BBC. but all they made him do was make tea for the presenters & other crew for a whole year.

    So yeah. shit happens. Just because the company you are working for is oh so prestigious doesnt mean they wont treat you half like scum when you step through the door.

    What's wrong with making tea for a whole year, sounds like a good way to avoid doing other work

    nothing at all. Except he wasnt there for work or work experience. he was there as part of his Uni course and he didnt learn a single thing other then 10 sugars or 12.

    I worked with my pa at the bank where he worked :laugh: though after the tour of the place i spent most of my time in the basement helping out the hardware support guys and the people who help set up rooms/systems for Video conferencing.

    I also worked on help desk for a bit. listening into people calling in and the operator telling them to try pressing the power on button on their pc. got sick of that in 30mins then it was back to the basement with the hardware support crew who couldnt always be around to babysit me.

    but it was funky cruising around the big server rooms by myself soaking in the air con with an all access pass to go anywhere in the building except for the executive suite on the top top top floor.

    all in all, it was a very bad place to go for work experience. I didnt do much working at all. mainly sit in a chair and watch how things were done.

    I was more of a hindrance then anything else IMO. these people had serious businesses to attend to and get on with and there i was looking over their shoulder trying to find out what they were doing. and asking a lot of questions. Banks are always fast paced environment even when its not on the stock traders floor. not the best place to go for work experience. the staff there made me feel welcome. but the reality is there was nothing there for me to do a side from sit in the data center where my dads team worked and make tea and coffee for them. I was the extra cog in the well oiled machine that wasnt required.

    I think my dad got me in there hoping it would motivate me somewhat but who cares anyway. that was a long long time ago

    I done work experience in maplins lol,not the shops but the office in westcliff,essex...
    boring tedious place to be and i havent been able to work in an office since,unless it was going in to fit a/c or ductwork.
    i think i need to keep moving so an office environment isn't something i can cope with.

    £855 worth of gear and not even a mobo or cpu in sight :shadedshu:shadedshu I think it cost me around £450ish for my i5, mobo & DDR3 last month. cant quite remember,

    but this shit all adds up. i have officially gone OTT on this build.

    all im missing is a 1TB SSD and LN2 cooling
