When all about us are tightening the Christmas belt, one company with many, many govt contracts in the IT sector is bucking the trend. A bottle of Veuve Clicquot and some exquisite chockies arrived on my desk yesterday - I have a dark fear that people in the office are looking at me wondering if I'm on the take. Their contract was only for $20k so lord only knows what people who administer really big contracts get - return airfares to Melbourne perhaps? I'm not sure I could enjoy it knowing that essentially it was paid for with taxpayers dollars. Interested in any suggestions for its use.

I'm a taxpayer, I'll drink it.

I know a few IT types who've had the misfortune to try and deal with various government departments. Frankly, those chaps deserve everything they can get.
