Somebody produce graphs!
I wonder which is a more significant drain on resources: the number of users or the number of PCs. I usually assume a laptop costs about twice as much time as a desktop unless it's living in a cupboard 364 days a year.

In my current job, we have:
- 1130 students give or take a few, high school so Grades 8-12, or Forms 2-6 in UK style.
- 75 staff, some part time
- About 170 computers
- 40 odd Smartboards and projectors
- Floating laptop and projector
- My colleague and I as full time network admins
- 1 teacher above us who is in general charge of IT
We are getting towards the point where we can be proactive instead of reactive, though not quite there yet. The network we inherited was in a shocking state, unmanaged switches, no diagrams, no documentation etc...
We did a major overhaul in December which is helping us to move forward now.
Sometime I feel that things are moving so fast that we need a 3rd team member to help out with things until we have managed to automate more processeses.
