I haven't changed my opinion on this. In fact, I'm thinking about a kickstarter for the Martin-Baker conference room anti-PowerPoint ejection system.

I'd love to have an ejection seat as my office chair. Even better, equip a conference room with them - especially if it was still functional. Whenever someone was droning on, getting too "pointy haired" or just annoying, they could be punched out of the building. If everybody was being annoying or if I were at risk of succumbing to PowerPoint poisoning, I could just punch out and escape the meeting.

Just come back from a week out of the office, don't know whether anyone will ever read this, but... There was an interesting programme on BBC TV in the UK last night about 747 maintainence. They visited an aeroplane recycling company and discussed the second-hand prices for various parts: £500 for a used toilet bowl; £30,000 for a single, used windscreen panel! However, the stuff this desk is made out of is basically scrap, so if the desk is expensive it's because it's designer...

Cool stuff, I like the air fans and the receptionist cubicle they show in the main website visual portfolio, it looks like a small cockpit/control room. I assume at those prices, the model secretary is included! ... LoL

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
