    Sounds like you have a few underlying problems, if you do get another guy in it might be worth sitting down and going through the becta framework. Lots of work initially but in the long run will stop you running round like aforementioned headless chickens resulting in LTS through stress

    Here's the answers that I hope help -

    1. There is no Director of ICT. SMT are showing positive signs in terms of investment (there has been a recent appointment of a new Principle and he is a forward thinking bloke - he is also a good listener). The appointment would be made - ultimately- by the Bursar. He's got his work cut out for him in having to step in with my good self restoring machines, fixing low level probs and ever other annoying issue youcan think of while the network manager is away. I imagine he wants this sorted asap so he can get back to the numbers and administrative side of running the school.

    2. It is a weekly, bog standard close at 3.45 school.

    3. The school is private.

    4. I was pretty much guessing at the NT platform bit. If anything better could be used and proved to do so then I imagine there would be no issues as long as it was compatible with existing infrastuff.

    5. I know trolleys are problematic - but nowhere near as problematic as not having enough computer classrooms. I am going to insist that a couple of the classrooms to be used are hardwired for them with APs to try and avoid drop off and speed up connection etc.

    6. The VLE bit is unavoidable (sadly) it looks like do it or soon look like a 50's school. Any techies reading this will know the movement in this area and why I keep pressing for it despite the extra work it will give me.

    That's pretty much it really.

    I worked out in industry for years and really wanted a 'blood and guts' guy who doesn't have problems with running around like a headless chicken fixing stuff from logon issues to replacing failing hard drives. (As opposed to a theorist). The existing manager is great for this sort of stuff but he's off long term and we were talking about getting him an assistant anyway so with him being off this seemed like as good a time as any to get it sorted.

    If I don't get any joy using Edugeek over a couple of days I think we're going to have to go down the agency / paper advert route. Only seemed fair to offer it to the guys in here who show enough interest by reading these forums.

    Hope you techies don't mind the enemy gate crashing like this! We're not all evil and some of us appreciate what you do!
    So you're still running NT and you're NM is off sick, sounds like you're NM has been on sick leave since 2003
