    the 60 points for student laptops is based on the amount of time we spend on them compared to other systems we have in school.

    Personally I think the lowest I could equate it to (on a good week .. a very good week) is 10.

    Webservers = 5
    App server = 5 + 1 for each app hosted on it.
    Projector = 1 (covering installation, maintenance / cleaning, connecting machines to them for the nth time, etc)
    Networked print server = 1
    Other peripheral = 0.5

    I agree on the network tax ... how about a wireless tax? 1 point per 5 APs?

    Do we want to add in other roles? Website editing? 1 point per whole day for 'extra jobs'?

    I'm the same, I'm on my lonesome! Slightly less workstations though (175).

    It's lonely but very busy!

    ok Tony i'll let you have:

    20 for school owned Windows student laptops.
    10 for school owned Mac student laptops.

    10 for Student owned "school managed" windows laptops (although we dont allow student owned windows machines!)
    5 for Student owned "school managed" Mac Laptops

    Wireless Access Points hmmmm
    1 for thin AP's
    5 for Fat AP's

    anyone who has houses surrounding their buildings will know how often they have to reconfigure things. we just get our setup perfect then some1 buys a stupid bthomehub on full power channel 11 or 1. really looking forward to our 5Ghz N network going live for this very reason(well will give us a break).

    At the moment, we have one VLE, 2 file servers, 2 DCs, an IIS, 250 desktops, 50ish laptops, 30ish printers, 20 projectors.
    And theres just me.

    During the summer the number of servers are going up even more.
    Still just me.
    Run off my feet how it is, apparently there isn't enough work load.
