    Paperwork

    I hate the fact that NO asset tracking has been done in the 13 years that this school has had a network, and I now have the task of tracking what hardware, and software is in the school.

    Where is it.
    Who owns it. . . . you must know how possessive teachers get over a mouse.
    How much it cost then.
    What is it worth now.
    Life Expectancy.
    Do we have a license for it. . . No... Oooo. . . Have to uninstall that software you use every day!!! Ooops... yes I actually do that....

    And so it goes on.....

    Lets just say this job makes me say.. ..

    Appears this thread has been resurrected!

    There was none here, apart from the school main office! Theirs is a joke but every so often they will send a sheet around asking for any IT stuff, and I think haha what am I going to do with this. They will get a printout off me (bloody long one) but not sure if they use it.
    Then you got our Science department with theirs, in fact who insist on trying to do everything theirselves (including ordering IT stuff and setting it up!), hell why get me involved Doesnt take long though before I get called.
    Set my own up a few years ago and it has been in build since (a few access tables linked up with lots of querys) is really accurate these days!
    It has always been me who pushes it though, so apart from that there is no real accurate asset database ever been insisted on!! Mad really. You can always dig out all the invoices!

    Had audit in recently, gave them the database.


    Worst jobs - Well has to be people stuff -
    Worst job has got to be dealing with management!! Im thinking to myself hmmm you really shouldnt be getting involved in the IT stuff should you, just tell me what outcome you want!
    Forget recognition and appreciation of workloads, at least here!

    Dealing with teachers is a PITA but im used to their self-important attitude these days.

    Managing trainee techs can be a PITA sometimes too!

    Working here pays the bills though haha

    i must change about 15 mice a week, no win situation glue the balls in they get full of fluff ect, dont glue them in and the miceballs go missing, it espcially annoys me when the kids go round unplugging and swaping mice in the ICT suites bending all the pins in the process, then just throwing them down the back of desks when it wont go in,

    we are slowly trying to replace them all with usb optical mice tie wrapped to the power and vga cables so hopefully this should be a problem of the past in a few months

    Cool

    Hey, your right this is a most annoying job, especially when its that amount of mice that are going missing, I would have to have words wth some of the teachers to ask why they are not seeing these mice going missing?

    Your profile says your in Barnsley, where abouts im in Wath-Upon-Dearne.

    LOL Trollop

    its not too bad in the ict suties that have a perminent teacher they seem to look after stuff a bit more, but we have a shared suite that everyone else uses, its a pretty bad layout though there is 5 pods with 6 computers on so its a little difficult to see them all,

    Im at Royston mate, do you work at that huge secondary in Wath?

    No I live in wath just up the road on the right hand side near the speed camera from the HUGH Secondary in Wath, I went to that school many years back before it was BSF'd and turned to the Dark Side.

    I work in Pontefract at The Kings School as well as many other schools, where ever Im needed really could be Pontefract one day and Leeds the next who knows?

    Much better, they still get 'ripped' off PCs here in some place. IT suites are looked after well here becoz of the room owner thing.

    Simple things like mice/keyboard unplugged are a big irritant - doubly so when on an RM One (don't even go there!!) and you're trying to get one swapped out, get the back off, oh bugger it's one where the screws gone - etc.

    Or anything in our admin office - which is a nightmare of wires here there and everywhere, wires diving behind cupboards and up walls... nobody really knows what's where!

    Answering the telephone!

    Usually someone either wants a job doing hence I have to direct them to the helpdesk system or some company rings trying to flog something!

    I would be quite happy without a telephone ringing in my ear all day...
