    Here we have:

    500 PCs
    120 iMacs
    30 Staff Laptops (but very little work required on these)
    10 Servers
    60 Projectors
    60 IWB

    1200 Students - 80% incompetant
    200 Staff (including Admin) - 99% incompetant.

    2 of us Techs sitting in a tiny office while a single admin lady gets an office twice the size. Its mad to think if it was a 1:40 ratio we should have 15 of us! We are always busy but I reckon any more than 4 and we would be bored.
