What are Plusnet doing to celebrate their 20th anniversary ?

So Plusnet is TWENTY years old !  Cool smiley

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plusnet

Plusnet Technologies Ltd, opened its doors at Internet House, Victoria Quays, Sheffield, in November 1997

 

What are Plusnet going to do to celebrate ?

 

How about giving away a year's free broadband, or a Christmas hamper, to all of your customer's who have been with you since the "Force9" days ?

 

I've been here more than 18 years now, and it would be nice to see Plusnet do something generous (for a change) for very long term customers who have supported you through both the good and bad times.

Nice try @Nibiru - maybe PlusNet could post you a free PlusNet branded pen free of charge Grin

The good quality mugs are those who are still paying for the grossly sub-standard service.

Unfortunately some of my best work in that competition was deleted by the moderator's as the photoshop'ed mug double entendres were deemed inappropriate for a forum that might be read by children.  Although I would still argue that any children looking would have been unlikely to have understood the jokes.  It was all good fun though.

Ha ha,

PlusNet Devs you will understand what I mean Tongue

Reminds me of my old company. The person performing builds added a easter egg to the code without telling anyone. There was a screen where you put your first and last name in, and have to add a photo. A person in the other office nickname was beaker.

So usually you would have to do it manually, but he added a check in for first and last name, and if right it would automatically set beaker as the photo.

Bit bad I know, but hilarious at the time. He showed us when down into London. Grin

It was a development build, not a production one. So had to be taken out of course, but it was funny.
