The internet is down!
Somewhere outside of school. I've put up big notices but I bet I still get pestered "Can I still get my emails?" "Yes, if you do what I'm doing and use your smartphone!"

Yeah but I don't need the whole internet! Just Google.

When it comes back online, can I be first!

Let me prepare you for your day...
I only need a little bit of internet!!.
It's for a levels!.
Can't we just get new internet? This internets always broken.
My internet at home works, can I use that?
Well my netbook works on a dongle , can't the school just use wireless?
I'll need it after lunch.
My husband is good with the internet, do you want me to email him?
Can I still print?

Can I use word?
Shall I bring my modem in?

I wish I could laugh and say "It's the internet that's down, why would they ask about printing?" but all I can do is try to drink the memories away and cry

One teacher almost in tears, they are being observed all through the day and she's emailed her lesson plans to herself. I took pity and downloaded them via my phone.

Internet connectivity was down for all schools in Birmingham using the BGFL, however all appears OK now.
Interestingly Service Birmingham performed a firewall migration over the weekend, so it appears it went a little t!ts up.
It's nice to know it was thoroughly tested

Yep, it did go in an upward direction.... but did we really expect it not to?

It was never going to go smoothly was it!

Looks like we will be joining up with you next summer. A conglomerate of LEAs in the midlands are getting together with a system from Virgin. Worcestershire, West Mids, Warwickshire, Herefordshire and Staffs from memory.

Really? I wouldn't rush in to it if I were you. We are doing the sums to get out!
