    What to do when your not busy

    Hi Everyone

    Weirdly I am sat here with no problems to fix, no passwords to reset or homework to restore. Research is starting to get a bit glum and I'm heading towards checking out my favorite bands on Wikipedia.

    What sort of things do you do when everything is completed?

    I read on here looking for new developements. Look around for free software and deploy it. I look at problems i have had and how to fix them, and i look at problem i may soon have and see how to fix them before they happen.

    Hunt who has doughnuts/cake/biscuits in on and fix something in their room
    Use the time to pick up HUMINT (normally form pastoral or reception)
    Random project
    Tidying/Sorting kit
    Catch up on documentation
    Relish the moment

    I always have some long-term projects on the go for slow days. Today, for example, developing my machine data-collection app.

    Current fill in a few mins type job is bodging the swively chairs so they can't be wound down so far the teachers can't see the bggrs over the screens.

    A couple of holes, and a long bolt through the stem.

    Oh, and looking at these pictures (perfectly SFW)

    Great pics. Reminds me of the view from the plane when I was returning from hols back in August (seems sooo long ago now ).

    Back to the OP - erm, post here! These pages keep me sane during the quite moments. usually between 15:30 - 16:00 while I wait for the right time to sneak out, hoping nobody'll find me with a small job that needs doing now!
