That's a pretty mean thing to do. Wonder why he would do that, other than to be an a@#e.
Well done for picking it up and putting it right.

That's just vindictive - as much as I might not like someone (And I can't think of anyone right now - if you are doing sysadmin you have a moral responsibility if nothing else to do the right thing. Yes resign, but provide the information.

Thanks for understanding of my predicament gentlemen. I've still got some links to get back up, but it's mostly done. Today will be dedicated to plumbing as the sink in my daughter's bathroom is leaking (again).

WEX trade ins!
I told myself I wouldn`t get cross and that they would knock off at least 20% from the online quote o inspection but they surpassed themselves. They accepted most but dropped on every price bar 2 where they upped prices given online by 5-£10. They declined 3 items a 50mm 1.4 lens because it was loose o the focus band and could "hitch" when used manually, a 35f2 because it supposedly has more dust than it should - invisible to me,worst my newsest lens  a 70-300 beacuse VR ws not engaging and is uneconomical to repair! I tested everything before it went and cannot understand it unless damaged in transit.  They graded my Nikon 24-70 and 16-35 at 9- but suggest repairs are needed prior to sale, at my expense whilst offering £430 and £450 respectively claining zoom band sticks and sticky aperture blades othe latter - again both perfectly working for me. My Sigma 70-200 they grade at 8 but suggests need a chip to work on the newest Nikons. I think for ease I`l accept the offers made on the gear accepted without comment ad take a small hit - still more than I paid for it back out of my business when I gave up pro shooting and settled up for tax purposes. The declined and supposedly "need for minor repairs" I`ll ask them to send back and offer at their low prices to anyone wanting them in Leeds contacts. I knew I`d get annoyed!!!!Be interesting to see what they sell my gear at. I`ll have t get my D80 and charger back too in order to test the lenses for myself and assess them. Maybe take them into the local camera shop when they re-open for another opinion.

I guess Jinky this is potentially who so many people hang onto their old kit. Easier and less hassle than negotiating and posting all the gear.
Glad that some bits were valued well.
May the Force be with you.

I`ve told them I`ll sell the approved stuff and have back the "required action" ones that all worked  perfectly well on my camera It`s cost them a huge box going in and a smaller box coming back free insured postage to me. I`ll take them into the local dealers in Leeds when they open as I do want to buy a 70-300 new Fuji lens maybe. Just attracted to WEX as they bought for cash too at same rate.

I bet they have to post stuff back and forth  fairly regularly.
Local shop may be a good option.
That said I don't use mine anymore after they 'cleaned' my sensor and didnt do a very good job at all!
