Welcome to the CNET UK picture gallery, where Twitter followers of @cnetuk get to peek behind the scenes at the UK's biggest and best consumer technology site
They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but in this case a picture speaks 140 characters. Welcome to CNET UK's Twitter picture gallery, where we'll be lifting the curtain, breaking the fourth wall, and going behind the scenes on just what goes on at the UK's biggest and best consumer technology review site. You'll meet the team, see what we get up to at press launches, watch the CNET UK Podcast being recorded, and see outtakes from our video and product shoots.
We'll be posting a new picture every day and directly linking to the latest pic as a bonus feature specially for our readers at twitter.com/cnetuk. If you have any requests for pictures you would -- or wouldn't -- like to see, let us know in the comments. Onwards!

Nick wins T-shirt of the day at payday beers, where CBSi staff get a few beers to make up for the fact that we have the best job in the world. Ten Internets to anyone who spots the reference. (Clue: It's Wayne's World.)

"The boys wanted to win, yes, and sometimes a game could get hot if it was against a traditional rival (in the case of The Mills Wildcats sports teams, the despised Castle Rock Rockets), but"
