    Well as from Monday i shall be away from these forums for about a 5 days. I'm going to Amsterdam for that time due to work. Worst of all is that as the other engineer i'm going with will have a laptop it was deemed that i wouldn't need one. SO i shall be with out any net access for the week. No eamils, no ebay and no cert forums... HOW WILL I COPE???????

    Tinus, if you read this, can ya recommend any palces to eat cloe to the RAI center? Going to be staying alonr VOORBURGSTRAAT if you now the area.

    Also been told to keep my expenses down as we only charging for the others engineers cost as i'm going along for training. So no top restaurants or long drinking seesions.. god i'm gonna be bored!!!

    Soooo... you're going to be in Amsterdam, you can't spend much money, and they're not going to let you on the internet that much.

    What did you do to deserve that much punishment!?

    I wish i knew........

    One of the others in the office suggestd a visit to the red light district, but i cant put that down on expenses as "Light Entertainment" if i'm not getting expenses! :twisted:

    Least i can make the other guy pay for the drinks and run up his tab!

    GBL was that steak from an argentinian restaurant? when i last went there thats what we had. Was great steak but the service was lousy.
