    The truth is I'm actually just too lazy to download Office on this computer and already had this installed.

    Funny what you can do with some CSS xD
    That's a nice straightforward idea - tempted to just go with that one on our intranet page this year...

    Don't forget to disable all these things at 12:00 else you'll be the fool!

    Pfft. That's a stupid rule, enforced only by those who aren't sharp enough to have cottoned on by midday.
    April Fool's is all day.

    I have added a piece of PHP, which will enforce the changes and then at 12:00 revert them back - I ain't no fool

    EDIT: OMG - Yes going to use Mr T somehow!

    April 1st is coming-mg.jpg

    so not only have I setup the staff laptops to change its login pic, but also set all student computers background image too...

    You know this may be a way to get them to turn their projectors off when not in use

    Sent the VoiceOver(tm) picture to one of the ladies in Reprographics.
    I'm hoping she things staff will see the funny side and makes use of it. I'll trust her judgement on this one.

    The IT team came in this morning and found their wallpaper set like this:
    April 1st is coming-goat.png

    The phrase "What the everlasting *expletive deleted*" was uttered a few times

    How big is it? A3 [on nice paper] would possibly get people to read it. Looks important.


    I was VERY tempted to knock up a troll NUT/ATL poster about some stunt Gove was now trying to pull... but I decided against it on 2 grounds:

    A) I was going to forget to take it down.

    and B) It's a bit cruel...

    Honourable mention: I know some people here would take it seriously, even after I said it was a joke.

    The helpdesk (OP Smartdesk) has an announcement when people go to it saying it's down for maintenance and gives the business managers extension. Endless calls

    Us in admin fell for signing a congrats card for the receptionist who's colleague convinced us she just got engaged.

    Some staff have been receiving emails about the new "1984" software we've got for the projectors which allows us to monitor what is being projected for the purpose of a teaching and learning review - at the moment, video will be deleted after 2 days as we're just testing, but the audio will be stored for a week, as performance reviews are coming up.

    I'm just thinking of announcing Cake O'Clock - which we have a lot, but this time, it'll be only a picture

    I'm sure the day will only get better...

    That's cold, man...

    It's also an actual thing people do, apparently. [Cameras in classes to do observations without notice disruption]
