Now here’s a good idea: every UK office worker spending one day working from home in a bid to alleviate climate change.
Sounds a little crazy? Well, not really. Maybe not every office is equipped to do so, but with the widespread technology now available – such as telephones, fax machines and the Internet – there aren’t many jobs that can’t be performed to a certain extent remotely.
In February, we arrived in Bulgaria, excited to be in a land filled with snow, and ready for an adventure and learning how to ski! On our way from the airport to our Ski Resort, we were a bit disappointed by the amount of snow we saw on the roads, but a 3 hour drive took us further into the mountains and the snow was thicker and just what we expected.
On our first day, we were up at the crack of dawn to get kitted up with our ski equipment and to take the gondola to the top of the mountain. The views from the Gondola were picturesque, and we were able to relax for 30 minutes on our way up.
Cake Club was a roller coaster ride of unexpected triumphs, unforeseen trouncings and – let’s be honest – a winner that nobody could have predicted. If Nick’s win – after having to be persuaded to take part at all – taught us anything it is that in the topsy-turvy world of Cake Club, appearances and prejudice count for very little in the face of the wild whimsy of fate. Or does it? Maybe Cake Club is a numbers game; maybe the results are predetermined by the influence of factors which are quite readily observed and quantified. Only one type of person can help unravel such mysterious conundra – a statistician!
Sadly, we don’t have one of those on the staff so you’ll have to make do with me. And I haven’t been in a statistics lecture for the fat end of a decade.
Here are some new pictures of the Powwownow Sponsorship at Twickenham. Great match by the way – Better luck for England next time!

Last week we gave you a useful little guide (well, we hope you found it useful) about which features you should have on your conference call phone to get the most out of Powwownow. We thought we’d follow it up with something similar: a guide to how to keep your conference calls secure.
First of all, I should point out that, on the whole, having a conference call is nothing to worry about and ‘tapping’ into conference calls is a very difficult process. Nevertheless, if it’s something you are worried about, there are a few simple security measures that will help bolster the security of your calls.
Follow the steps below for complete peace of mind on your next conference call.
