    Last day howler!!

    I sent out an email yesterday telling staff that we were shutting the proxy down for 15 mins to run some tests.

    I got a reply this morning reading...

    "Hi Tony,
    I can not get Internet at home. Is this a general problem?

    *username*"

    myself and the other tech, laughed our backsides off...

    Lol we've had this - we got blamed for the internet not working at a member of staff's home properly. Wouldn't have minded but it wasn't the school laptop they were using but their own PC. FFS sake get a grip!
