The IT Crowd

I'm a huge fan of the geektastic Channel 4 comedy series The IT Crowd, so I was really pleased to find this link today, confirming that it's returning to our screens in the UK at the end of November. For those who haven't yet discovered it, I urge you to check out this link for a taster of this hilarious sitcom (unfortunately it's no longer possible to embed this clip).

But I was even more pleased to find this spoof website for Reynholm Industries, the company which is the setting for the series. With a little searching around, you can find a way to log into the company's Intranet and download wallpapers and images from the series(I won't spoil the surprise by telling you where to find the login details, you'll have to find them yourself!). Top marks for this brilliant comedy website!
