  1. Holiday. What's that?

    by , 8th April 2008 at 05:44 PM (Wandering lonely as a clown...)
    So, here I am, every other person in the school is on holiday but I'm still at work. Supervising people installing projectors until 7pm.

    Yet people have the nerve to comment when I promptly leave at 4:30 during term time.

    What I wouldn't give to be able to see 'Easter Holiday' or 'Summer Holiday' on the school calendar and not have to think 'well, I'll need to take down X to update Y' and 'I hope no muppets are in messing with things when I'm trying to recable the core ...
  2. Fun for a few minutes... Until you end up upside down

    Well to start off my blog, I'll post some images of a crash that happened about 10 minutes ago outside my school, in front of our police station...

    Why do people who buy this type of car insist on speeding? Yes, the car is pretty damn good but you can still end up upside down and looking like a muppet.

  3. Jobs Jobs

    Got an interview for "IT Repair Technician" at a local firm tomorrow. Same money, but hopefully more job progression prospects. Can't stay a tekkie forever!

    Just hope I get something before the holidays are up! Then I can hand in my notice. Might actually speak to someone about that today to see what I do... and what to do if nobody is in school!

    Unfortunately that will mean I'm not an official "Edugeek", but I'm sure nobody will mind me hanging ...

  6. Monday +1

    by , 31st March 2008 at 09:14 AM
    I hate it when the clocks go forward... was rudely awakened by the alarm this morning... and I didn't want to get up.

    On account of me being disorganised I have failed to buy any breakfast things for myself and I am currently starving to death. Luckily colleague will be nipping to Lidl in an hour or so.

    I could go to tesco express but I'm just too lazy! Mmmm potato cakes.

    I like food.

  8. Coffee + Work = stress

    by , 26th March 2008 at 03:35 PM
    I think coffee makes me more stressed... I swear I could kill some people today.

    Lots of people.

    I want to quit but I can't because there are bills to pay

    I need to get my sky cancelled on account of it being a total RIP OFF.

    Don't get sky!

  9. Let there be light..

    ....or not in this case. One of my UPS' overloaded with perfect timing on Thursday night, taking the Web Server and the Citrix farm with it. So we had 4 days of downtime on the VLE. But it could of been worse, it could of been coming up to GCSE exams.

    Now I'd like to fix this properly, I really would. But the particular place we've chosen to install this server rack has some issues with power distribution. Basically even if I did sort out the UPS I would have no where to run power ...
  10. Sky and their incompetent salesmen

    by , 25th March 2008 at 08:52 AM
    So got sky installed on Monday. Thing is salesman insisted that we didn't need a bt line and that you didn't have to pay £11 a month... it's like £4... (lie)

    "You have a BT Line", I'm pretty sure we don't... but whatever. (We don't have a BT line)

    So gonna ring BT up and see how much it would be to activate a line. Is it £85??

    Hope not.

    Anyone know anyone who works for BT in the Burnley area?! hehe.

    Actually there ...
