    It was a pleasure to meet you today David and congratulations to the person who was chosen (not sure it's my place to post who).

    It's always an eye-opener to see what other schools have and how they make use of it and I have certainly taken onboard a few new ideas which I hope will help where I am now and where I move onto next.

    Onwards and upwards

    Thanks gotenks1321, I wish you good luck in finding a new job.

    I look forward to working at Alton Convent, it looks like an exciting move as I will be in charge of the IT rather than having to ask my manager before making changes, etc. The increase in salary also means I should now be able to rent somewhere which will be exciting.

    The school has a very nice premises, envionment and staff and it should be a great job.

    I guess my current position will be up for grabs soon then.

    Funnily enough that's what I spent most of last week doing helping the Caretaker strip out and refurnish the Deputy Head's office

    When do you start Alex? I hope they supply you with lunches like that one we had Wednesday

    Yea, that lunch was great I think it was a one off though., unless....

    We have not arranged a date yet. Once I get the employment contract and my manager from my current job returns from his holdiay (next week). Then it will be about 3-4 weeks from then.

    You don't normally get fed lunch, I'm afraid, although if there's an event on then lunch is generally served in the lobby. Handily, your office is right next door, complete with a window on to the lobby - all you need to do is bring a sturdy fishing rod and a decent-sized hook...

    I can't move the second, mirroring gateway server over to Smoothwall until I can get to it and put some more disks in it, which I can't do until I can stop the web server running on the same machine. Unfortunatly, this might not happen in the next two weeks or so, so getting Smoothwall mirrored between two gateways is probably going to be Alex's first task :-)
