    82. Please run out of the building in the morning asking for stuff even though we only have one leg off our Motor Bike/one leg out of our car. We enjoy starting work in the car park.

    #5 was missed: Please phone us for help anytime, even while we're on holiday snowboarding. It's all right, we can balance and hold our mobiles while travelling down a large mountain doing 50mph and help you with your problem accessing your Hotmail account. It's not just women who can multitask you know, we IT geeks are born like that.

    If that had been Dylan (AKA Robert Zimmerman) I'd commend you for opening their ears to perhaps the best poet of the last century. Music with some real passion and meaning. Even if he "has a voice like sand and glue", according to another fine musician.

    Yeah I get the "Just choose something you think is appropriate". They always get a suprise when they're actually doing the presentation- because they haven't checked it first

    reminds the time a member of staff asked if I could make a very quick show of some pictures with some music. Slapped them into Movie maker asked him did he desperately need music as I had none and he was absolutely sure. Dug around and the only CD I had was Queens of the Stone Age. So on went Killing Tree and Mosquito Song. Really bolstered the mood

    Normally SLT before they do an assembly. Or for open days and stuff like that. I don't do stuff for the classrooms though.

    Yup instant I read:

    21. When you find an I.T. person on the phone, sit uninvited on the corner of his desk and stare at him until he hangs up.


    I thought "good god that happens here far too often!!"
    Here too - spooky

    83. After we broadcast a message to all computers that the email server is being powered down for half an hour, feel free to ring us and ask why you can't access your email.

    84. When Google displays "We're sorry...
    ... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application"

    Please ring and give us hassle, everyone knows we wrote the Google search Engine in our spare time!

    Sure beats lectures - unless they're hacking lectures - they're cool.



    85. Feel free to complain about the new webfilter you ASKED us to install when it blocks your favourite time-wasting website. It clearly needs tweaking so it doesn't block anything from you.

    You mean to say you haven't disabled the messenger service on all your computers already.

    Also, even i realise how annoying those messages are , so you've got no complaints if people phone up to hassle you.
