Love is all around this fine Monday morning – happy Valentine’s Day! What’s that you say? No cards, no flowers, no…nothing? Well, never mind, dry your tears – we still love you. To show our affection we’ve got some goodies to give away.

Think up a caption for this poor confused member of the IT crowd and be in with a chance of winning a webcam and an Arc mouse.
