Its just amazing what a team of motivated software engineers can achieve in just an hour or two. Tongue out

We put it down on the timesheet as a teambuilding exercise... We did after all build a team member.

JPEGs are for photographs and realistic images. PNGs are for line art, text-heavy images, and images with few colors (think of PNG as a replacement for GIF).

The card on the cube wall might be an indicator (together with the large number of radios about the place).

Not only is this epic, but your justifying the cost is the cherry on topLaughing

honem: I'm kinda un observant to night

Yes, it is.

First we made the robot, Mike 2.0. Then we made his dog.

We thought about making a peeked roof for his cubicle, but decided a castle was better.

So we made the battlements making up the castle.

Then we decided the castle needed flags at the door.

Then we decided a castle needs a tower, with a flag.

Then we decided that every castle tower should have a princess.

Then we decided every princess needs a dragon.

We thought about a trebuchet but we didn't have enough bits left over.

FYI the entire structure, dragon, dog and robot were built out packaging taken from the delivery of the 14 servers.

(Which was, for those interested, 10 Sunfires and 4 Netra x4200, and 11 500gb sunfire HDD's)

The cubicle is at Tait Electronics in Christchurch.
