    The internet isnt working.......

    Just had a teacher say the internet isnt working, I knew the problem wasnt the internet and it was Google instead.

    Told the teacher to use another search engine and they asked "whats that?"

    Sometimes I do wonder about them.

    I had someone say they "couldn't get on Google" (meaning the Internet) and it transpired that they had somehow set the "This page cannot be displayed" page as their homepage.

    I sent an email to our SMT about a group of older computers being very slow and need replacing. Reply back from 1 saying that there was a problem with the internet in the area and when that was fixed the computers would be quicker. I sent a brief reply stating that internet speed is not the same as computer speed.

    We were asked by one of our staff if we could put the internet on a floppy disk (a few years ago now) so she could use it at home as she didn't have access.

    Took me a week to sort out a teachers no internet. It was causes lots of problems and needed sorting ASAP!!!. I reset the firmware, power cycled it and tested it no end, I was about to smash it into little pieces and buy another when it transpired it only didnt work ... when she was at home.

    :/

    I really do wonder how they get on at home!

    Our finance officer recently had a new PC and asked if she had to turn it off at the end of the day.
    "That might be a good idea!" I said
    "Oh OK!" came the reply
    "... only, if I don't turn that or in the morning [pointing to the old PC], i can't see anything on the screen!"
