It really bother me sometimes when I see the wastefull attitude of some people who work at the university. Today for instance, a printer with a problem. Options given are spend £140 on a replacement part to fix the problem or £250 on a new printer. To me it seems a no brainer but guess which option they went with.
And the guy that thought computers should be classed as ‘consumables’ because of their “disposable nature nowadays”, so he could buy them out of a different part of his budget.
