MORE TO THE POINT CAN WE BORROW BEG STEAL SOME COOL CAMERA KIT TO record our adventures !?

e.g. pencil cameras and those gadgets that hang off the side to get the wheels turning...

And I know we have some skilz in editing already, but we could really do some pro stuff.

I.e. I really wanted to recce a run and set up some strategic camera locations to catch the cars go by, make it come alive so to speak.

Car park shots are ok.... ish

I think Peter is being serious. He could tell us more, but then he would probably have to kill us.

Perhap the Esprit is getting a bit long in the tooth and a 335d is required to meet the HM governments commitment to Kyoto.

Anyway Peter, don't aim a Trident D5 anywhere Mill Hill please.

You say that but I have seen a strange blue cult growing that will ultimately threaten western civilisation as we know it.

The local hoodies are doing what they can with their keys but we all know its a loosing battle ........

Supervisory control and data acquisition. Basically control software that monitors alarms on your building management technology and allows you to control it centrally.

We mostly do heavy heavy industry providing control rooms to monitor and operate substations, gas rigs, oil pipeline etc.

Yes it is expensive, and it is usually because of bespoke software configuration and new communications interfaces to the latest generation of equipment. Fire alarm and cctv manufacturers always seem to be changing their software with a very expensive knock on to the scada.

I'm impressed, since most software development project managers can't manage their shoelaces or hold a job for more than two quarters.

Nice to meet a project manager that can manage projects for a change!
You must have worked with some of my so called "peers" What line you in?
