(still not had that chat about WordPress integration)
Sometimes I look at why I work for lower money then my corporate counterparts in IT. Then I realise in corporate IT, you don't get strange and random situations every day due to the unpredictability of the students at the school.
As an example, I currently have some of the older kids singing a joint rendition of the song below in one of the corridors outside my office. You won't see that in corporate IT.

Following on from my post earlier, I am publishing a quick guide to removing this nasty virus. Hopefully it will let you clear it from your network a bit quicker then we have.
First of all, you need to shut your network down. This is important because Conficker spreads from computer to computer regardless of them being patched against it. We found lots of systems that were patched but still infected after the virus propagated over the network, only a few systems that didnít belong
I recovered from the flu! Then after catching up following a weeks quarantine Conficker came to play.
On the Friday, the network came down.
By the following Thursday, core services were restored. So about a week.
Still a few bits left but now I am back to another week of catching up as our reports couldn't be filled in or analysed by admin staff. On the plus side, I could tinker with Remote Desktop to monitor the servers and had lots of experience cleaning up
Well we are off; yesterday I got the news that the Buckingshire area link with St Vincent & Grenadines (SVG) is going ahead. High Wycombe has a lot of SVG families who migrated back in the 50s and 60s; these projects will reflect this community and its history and also include curriculum links to human rights - namely fair trade, slavery ('resistance and rebellion'), MFL (French and Spanish is spoken) and a host of other stuff - arts, music obviously.
How will it be done? I'm
In a discussion about student IDs I got a tad frustrated by the take some people have about Becta guidance and that it is given from a point of not really understanding how the real world works or giving examples ... Originally Posted by GrumbleDook With all respect to DB and AT ... B*11*cks
Becta put out the recommendation based on data protection guidance and esafety guidance from a heap of places and just collate it. Having a go at them for doing this is pretty pointless and hiding your head in
Yesterday went well. Our reports for Year 8 were successfully set up on our online homebrew system after bouncing instructions back and forth over EMail and playing with the system itself through it's control panel. Between me and my line manager, we actually pushed the reporting ahead of schedule on top of other tasks sent to me. Though I did discover if I did go into work, I'd have spent most of my day sleeping at my desk given the big energy slumps I was suffering from.

Due to being unable to set foot outside of my house thanks to a knee-jerk reaction by the NHS (oh no, blanket diagnosis of swine flu!) I am being forced to work from home.
So far so good. I'm staying in touch with my manager via EMail and able to handle jobs on our two online systems of Fronter and the homebrew reporting system. I'm still able to respond rapidly to some tickets and have pushed out at least one instant resolution this morning.
Just in-case, I am using
4 months ago, I purchased a JVC Everio camcorder. I was hoping to film my trips to London but after running some test footage, I discovered it didn't work. The software was terrible and it stored files in .MOD format. Good if you have the cash to splash for Adobe Premiere, bad if your forced to use Windows Movie Maker.
Fast forward to today. Then, I used Windows XP. Now I use Windows 7 and the Live version of Movie Maker. Not only did Windows 7 pick up my camera with no drivers required,

Well, I've finally finished Dune.
I bought the book in the Summer of 1993 (my final year of uni.)
Finally got around to finishing it after 16 years.
A fantastically well written book, one of those genuinely exciting books, but the ending - what a disappointment! It just stops.
