    You could have a lot of people on your doorstep with sleeping bags. Cash in hand, no questions asked

    I wonder how many techs you can fit in a 15" x 9" shed! Guess it depends if its standing or would I have to build bunks? Hammocks maybe? -_^

    BBC News - 'Sheds with beds' are London's modern day slums
    Fifteen inches by nine inches? That's one small shed! Maybe you meant 15' x 9'

    It's cool. You don't get that much spam.

    Out of all the companies that scanned my badge, only a couple have sent me stuff. [One of which I only allowed to scan me because I wanted popcorn.]


    I think I may put my job title as "GLaDOS wrangler" this year.

    A job title that suggests you have no influence over school spending whatsoever can be very useful

    On the other hand, when they used to have a lounge specially for NMs, a second badge with Network Manager as the title was also handy

    The Conference is held oop North and is an edugeek only do with invited speakers and exhibitors. It's MUCH smaller.
    Yeah, I watched some of it last year on webcast, but couldn't hear it properly and it wasn't like the Real Thing, if you know what I mean.

    So I thought I might make the effort this year.....next year....whenever it is, before I bow gracefully out.

    Last year I had three badges. One NM - from one school which has secondary years, one tech from the junior school (no budgetary responsibility) and one (the one they scanned) was written as Ms Wi Tch.
    I have also seen IT Tech used as a name!

    Last year I was "senior ICT Technician", which it technically true. [Which is the best kind of true] I'm also the Junior Technician and the Apprentice Technician.

    Following on from another thread....Maybe we should do some positive discrimination and have a "Female Tech Day" on the stand!

    How about we don't, and we just pretend that we did.


    Why not just have a "Tech Day"? Why does it always have to be about segregation. [Technically, "Tech Day" discriminates against non-techs... But, I don't care.]

    I have a dream, where male and female techs work in harmony and nobody is judged on anything. But, then there a shark and lasers... and what I'm guessing is supposed to be a bear.

    We get discriminated all the time, "Non-Teaching Staff." Tech Day sounds good to me.

    I'm going to say yes. You are allowed to attend. [IIRC Bett is open to the public on all days now.]


    Also, tech, please. I'm not "non-teaching staff". I'm "SysAdmin".
