    It all depends if we're talking about commandments for techs or users.

    Users:

    1. Thou shalt backup thine work.
    2. Thou shalt understand that a backup means two copies.
    3. Thou shalt learn into which sockets the wires of thine device should go.
    4. Thou shalt learn the difference between thine computer, the network, and the internet.
    5. Thou shalt not call upon the assistance of the divine ones to understand an 'out of paper' message.
    6. Thou shalt not call upon the divine ones unless you have written down a message of error which was displayed.
    7. Thou shalt not write down your password upon a post-it.
    8. Thou shalt not complain when websites are blocked for good reason.
    9. Thou shalt not question the authority of the divine ones.
    10. Thou shalt not trespass upon the holy place of the servers.

    Thou shalt save thy work regularly.

    Thou shalt not install more software than thou has licenses for, even if it is an emergency.

    Thou shall not keep calling me to ask "if there is anything we can help you with" when I've asked you not to call again.

    Thou shalt not plan a lesson around a website without checking it works in school first.

    If thou dost plan a lesson around a website without checking it works thou must not wail on the IT staff when it fails.

    The filtering system works in mysterious ways, Do not rely on it to give you access to a web site that worked last week, last night, this morning or at the start of thy lesson.

    Thy shalt not request a problem to be fixed then go into great detail about how your problem is the greatest of all evils to man kind!

    Thy shalt not wander into the holy server room un announced and proclaim that "The network is down" when really you have just forgot to turn your wireless on.

    Thy shalt also not wander into the holy server room un announced and proclaim that "The internet is down" as thy shall get the answer, "What the whole internet?!??! Here comes the appocolypse then!"

    If I think of any other things that bug me ill put em up shortly!
