    I'm only on one site now, so it's just:
    - Keys (and keyfob)
    - Phone
    (I'm sure there's a song about this somewhere )

    Toolkit under my desk contains any tool I might need, I just pull them out as-and-when. If I get to a room and need other equipment I just head to the comms room and pick it up.

    You clearly have a smaller site than we do @fairm010

    Keys, work phone, mobile phone and thats it. If i need to fix a machine whilst im about ill either run back to the office to grab a screwdriver or ill take the machine back with me, running joke in the office is that taking the machine for a 'walk' from the classroom to the office fixes it! Happens about 2/3 of the time!

    It probably is but I'm tired of carrying stuff. Besides if it goes through the helpdesk as 90% of our stuff does I know what to take

    In my “Tech Bag” I typically have;

    Can of screen cleaning foam & some dry wipes
    Can of air duster
    Some wet wipes (for my hands)
    Some non-latex disposable gloves
    Couple of memory sticks, blank
    1 memory stick with Mini-XP on it
    1 memory stick with the common drivers needed for our machines
    Couple of sound cables
    Couple of network cables of varying lengths
    2 VGA male-to-male cables
    2 “kettle lead” power cables
    1 usb to mini-usb cable
    1 “printer” usb A to usb B cable
    Pens and pencils, notepad, eraser, sharpener, scissors, elastic bands, paper clips
    Bunch of cable ties
    Plasters!
    Rewritable CDs and DVDs (2 of each)
    iPhone charger (mine)
    Nokia charger (schools)
    1 USB mouse (always seem to get pinched by whoever sees it first!)

    I don't take this to every job though, only the ones I know will need something or if I'm going to be out of the office for a while.


    On myself I usually have 2 mobile phones, keys for the whole school (I'm the stand-in site agent should the Premises Manager and his assistant be away for any reason), various fobs for entry to doors.

    Sometimes I have my iPad so I can remote into my servers should I need to, but usually that's done from the machine I@m fixing if the need arises.

    I don’t take a laptop of my own, never needed to really.
