Yes, it was the VC

A gaggle of big-wigs visited work today, Gordon Brown gave a very professional and polished, seemingly off-the-cuff address and revealed the foundation stone for the International Digital Laboratory ... IDL ?? So far everyone has been referring to it as the Warwick Digital Laboratory and this is how it and has been branded – the options as I see it are:
  1. Reprint all the publicity, business cards and redo the website
  2. bury the foundation stone so no one can see it
  3. ignore it (there is some deliberate cock-up)

Afterwards myself Steve and Ben went up the Union bar for a swifty. On the way we passed the local chapter of the Socialist Workers Party ranting on at GB and Jack Straw. Haven’t they got homes to go? Oh, I forgot, no they haven’t, not since COMMUNISM DIED TEN YEARS AGO!!!! We were the only ones up the bar – What is wrong with todays students?

Anyway, I almost forgot to mention that the VC gave a very short return address – nice one! and “Yes” it was the VC.
