Although ginger beards are an abomination.

That seems topsy-turvy to me. When I was in school, I had to take two semesters of COBOL. The instructor was a clean-shaven old bloke who really did wear socks and sandals. He looked rather like Harold from Neighbors, actually. The admin of the school's UNIX system was a small, quiet man with a serious beard. He seemed to us students as someone who could at any moment snap and start carving his way throught the staff and students with an axe.
Well spotted, we Oracle DBAs often sprout stubble...
Unlike Unix Admins, we have to spend all day listening to users whining about why their waste of space reports won't run quickly enough, we often slip into comas and wake up in the office the next morning having not been home!
Simon CAN grow a beard? He looks to have problems growing hair on top of his head, what makes him think he can grow it on his face?
Ah, but I jest. Surely.
Good luck with the fundraising though. I'm not a beardie myself, since I'm a Linux fanboi and follow the cleanshaven lead of Torvalds.
Nothing wrong with a healthy dose of cynicism.
However in this case it looks OK:
So about 5% is overheads, and for Gift Aid donations they don't take the fee until they get the gift aid refund from the taxman, so the charity get 100% of your donation immediately as well as the remainder of the gift aid after the 5% and CC fees have been taken out.
It would seem the DBA needs all the help he can get. Bring on the beardy guy ..

We have an IT support bod that sports the long pony tail and unshaven. It's the stereotypical image of a an IT geek. When was the last time you saw a doctor or lawyer with one?
We clamour to be recognised as professionals but then there are those of us that want to look like slobs. Mention IT to any female and they're instantly turned off.
We don't exactly help ourselves do we?
If you want to be a professional, treated with respect, with status, recogised as professionals by other professions then you need to look a professional, look smart.
