Nothing quite so rare as legacy ERP :D I'm an Incident & problem manager (waits for incoming from the techies  :rollin ). I'm planning a years trial to see if I like it and there is enougth work available, if that works out then I will deffo go down the LTD route if not then I should have enougth saved to have a very lazy few months before I go back to the grinder :)

Its been a couple of years but its a great meet to go to, good food lots of beer, lots of "camping" :D well worth doing  8)

Thanks for the replies all, I suppose what it comes down to is they are ok if you get a decent one. I thought about the LTD company route but being a first timer I dont really want the agro of setup/shutdown if contracting doesn't work out for me. Having said that I work in a obscure IT function and there arn't really that many of us, and day rates currently being advertised are significant enougth to make me think it may be worth a punt.

well to be honest I'm just coming back after a two year gap. I had to sell  my old bikes (Fazer600 and a Z750s) due to working abroad for a year followed by some significant family changes that being said I'm feeling the need to splurge on a new FZ1 with some trimings :D
So I figured ide see if you guys were still about etc, and see whats what nowdays :D

Dave48  makes the point
Fiat Panda  diesel  cheap to buy ( £6500new)cheap to run 60000miles so far maintenance now’t but oil, tyres an brake pads ,actually more reliable than me Fazer  :eek .
That lets me have a Fazer for wizzing off on trips to Europe ,a TL1000r for arsing about on and track days, lots of beer an holidays and work part time :woot .
Buger this having a posh car lark £13500  for a basic Ford Fucus £0 deposit an £99  a month for rest of yer life, to park it on dive an polish it no thanks . 
Pandas are the mans car , especiallythe man with motor bikes to run an pay for .

I can see what your saying but you can get the same from a Ford fiesta, and still maintain some level of credibility  :rollin
