Important: All CFJ computers will be wiped of student data during August.

Jun
29

All newsroom computers will have their yearly 'service' and upgrades beginning on the 1st August 2015.

**ALL STUDENT DATA WILL BE WIPED AND CANNOT SUBSEQUENTLY BE RETRIEVED.**

As all students should already have their data stored on their own backup media (hard drive, cloud etc) this should present no problems and is an essential part of keeping the CFJ's Imacs running smoothly.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR WORK BACKED UP ON YOUR OWN DEVICES/STORAGE WELL BEFORE 1st AUGUST.

Job going on the Isle of Wight

Jun
16

Sorry for my tardiness in posting this.

A job is going for a trainee reporter at the Isle of Wight County Press. Nice little place to work. It is going through some upheaval at the moment, so what you will be working on will be different to how I started out, but it is a nice company to work for and independently owned.

If you want any extra info, give me a shout on mpmckew212@hotmail.co.uk.

'Spy' World Premier Opportunity - Message from Tom Acres

May
26

Through the entertainment news/review website I run (www.highscorereviews.com) I've been given media passes for the world premiere of Spy in Leicester Square tomorrow evening.  It's access for two people to the red carpet pens to interview the cast (Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Jason Statham, among others) and crew, film the event, etc.  You also get to see the movie.  Unfortunately with our final postgrad exam falling on Thursday morning, I can't take as much time out of the day as is required.
