RE: Website Background Image
Hows about this?

[Image: white-elephant-hi.png]


Har Har Har! Only kidding, of course!!! Tongue Big Grin

Many, many years ago, back in the days before competence based interviewing techniques were popular (actually, probably before they were invented), one of my friends applied for a promotion (in BT) and as was usual back then, the promotions board asked all sorts of bizarre questions to assess people's potential merit, typically ending with something obscure. At the end, they asked 'If you could liken BT to an animal, which animal would it be and why' to which he responded, 'A white elephant'. Needless to say, he didn't get the job (though I don't think he really wanted it, anyway). Big Grin

The best one I heard was that someone was asked what they'd do if they saw an aircraft in distress and looking as though it was about to crash into the telephone exchange, to which he answered 'I would go and get the cleaner'. Looking puzzled, they asked for his reasoning, to which he responded 'He has never seen a plane crash, either' (I thought he deserved promotion for that one, but sadly, the promotions board didn't). Big Grin

Back to Linn's forum photo and yes, almost anything would be better than the bloke in the jumper (surely it needs washed, by now)!

RE: Website Background Image
Any response Linn to this thread? C'mon it really is time to change this background image. How many more times does the issue have to get raised? Thanks.

RE: Website Background Image
Perhaps Linn are attached to it?
I mean, maybe it's one of Ivor's photos of a young(er) Gilead with his vinyl?? ;-)

RE: Website Background Image
Is it really that important? I'm sure the boys and girls at Linn are far too busy to worry about it.

RE: Website Background Image
I can't understand why anyone would get worked up about it at all. It's not even visible most of the time.

RE: Website Background Image
I think the discussion has been very much tongue-in-cheek about this.
I don't think anyone needs to take this discussion too seriously :-)

RE: Website Background Image
Wow, someone at Linn must have read this thread and changed the background image! At least carpet man has now sobered up enough to actually stand up (albeit rather fuzzily) and thus take tentative steps to go and refill his almost empty booze glass. Wink

Actually, it is rather nice to have a change and yes, despite my tongue in cheek comment, I do think that it is an improvement! Smile
