    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.
    Verily, this morning one sinner hast already broken these three commandments .

    Thou shalt stoppeth not the IT Technicians in the Corridors to consult with them, nor in the Staff Room, nor in the Dining Hall, nor in the Toilets, for they know not which Computer Room is free next period, nor do they know what you have just emailed them (even though they seeth all and knoweth all, sometimes they just forgetteth as their memory is likened unto a sieve).

    We are the your Lord Gods, who brought you out of the land of Abacus, out of the house of filing cabnets;

    Do not have any other gods before us

    You shall make yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is animal (pengiuns), vegitable (apples, apricots) or minerial (er, windows)

    You shall bow down to them or worship them; for we your Lord Gods are vengeful Gods, punishing users with BSODs and viri

    but showing steadfast uptime to the users who love us and keep our commandments

    You shall not make wrongful use of the username, for the Lords will not acquit anyone who misuses his username

    Remember the last day of term and keep it holy (buy your techies biscuits!)

    For the school holidays we shall labour and do all our work

    But the last day of term is holy to your Lord Gods; you shall not pray upon them to work - you, your staff or your pupils, your male or female admins, or the visitors upon your premises

    For six weeks the Lords made the network and the file system, the backups and all that is in them, but they rested on the last day of term; therefore the Lords blessed the holy days and expected biscuits upon it.

    Honor your Technicians and Network Manager, so that your logons may be long in the network that your Lord Gods are giving you.

    You shall not murder (even a ZX80 can be given productive use)

    You shall commit adultery (for all operating systems be the Mac, Linux or Windows have their use)

    You shall not steal (for bandwidth and disk space is for everybodys use - not just your own)

    You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor (nor still his logon such the you may gain or cause disruption to the network)

    You shall not covet your neighbor's computer, you shall not covet your neighbor's home space, or mouse, or keyboard, or anything that your neighbor should be working with.
