    This was exceptionally slow of me.
    You're only twenty minutes away. Still time to rearrange plans surely?

    Unfortunately, I arranged a whole bunch of things for Thursday, some of which I can't rearrange. To say I'm particularly gutted is an understatement. Maybe I'll pay attention to dates next time. If I can get off a little earlier, I might pop through to say hi to folk.

    Erm...little jobs here and there this week. Not really enough to keep us in for a long period of time, but we've got to be here. Probably go through an Office Tidy and general check on rooms

    Supervising the building works and seeing that the builders don't destroy anything while they deploy and set up 4 mobile classrooms, oh and I have to set them up on the network.

    Out and about visiting customers and unfotunately won't be at edit as time is short.

    Perhaps next year or edit south by southwest when it's arranged.

    Going in on friday to sort out the server with our external server support guy. The backup has thrown a wobbly, the password change policy is only working for some people and not others, and we have had a few random shut-downs

    Good Lord no. We left embc a while back. With RM now (did someone just say 'out of the frying pan...'? :-P )

    Unfortunately, after the engineer got everything sorted the connection kept dropping, apparently we have a line fault. On our brand new line.
    Now we are back into the BT appointment scheduling roulette wheel. Wheeeeee...!

    Did have no plans to go in but yesterday had a teacher who just couldn't make it through HT without a laptop (he'd managed to kill the newish one issued to him) so in I went. As you do when the opportunity arises I did a bit of tidying up and brought a laptop home to stick a replacement HD in as well.

    We (the junior and myself) have a thrilling couple of days, visiting every PC and making sure all the keyboards and mice are OK. We also have to check the headphones in the language lab and if previous experience is anything to go by, we will have to replace about half. I have a flask of Mrs Unixman's very strong coffee on hand!

    I can sense that you can hardly contain your excitement! Well something like that anyway!

    For once I have a steady half term, no one wants any kit installing!! To be honest had a few jobs, was at one all day yesterday and managed to pass the other jobs off so just bits as they come in, on top of it all in the main.
