Around 50 forgotten passwords, 5 PC's in one lab where the kids had poked the floppy drive cover out and unseated the ram(left if thankfully!), one of the switches has died, couple of printers going mental and a teacher whose laptop keyboard has started doing random letters whenever he types "Something may or may not have been spilt on it". Nice.

We got off to a good start; arrived at 8am to be told school closed due to snow & ice + heating failure + frozen pipes + generator failure taking out temporary classrooms ..... oh and the servers were down due to extended power cut in the village over the New Year.
I am back home, having restored all servers to a working state; 8x WAPs still down due to generator problem. Waiting for email/phone call from HT to update website & say when school is due back.... and more snow is forecast

Is that the Rural Science online assessment software? If so, you may be pleased to know they are not using it this year

I had a great start to the day.
Due to brother in law's transport issues I had to bring my son into work with me. He was picked up soon after I got here so it was ok. Besides, bringing a baby into a girls school isn't such a bad thing; they all like babies so he got to meet some new people
I have played my first two pranks of the year so things are underway properly. I rigged up some bangers from some left over christmas crackers on the server room door and my colleagues top draw.

I have to say that the teaching resources side of it seem good, but the technician's support docs are fairly pants (I should know....). I just love the way that it doesn't tell you what concentration of chemical you should be using in half the pracs... Just to make my life even easier!

Not long now until day #1 is over. I'm giving it 3-1 odds that most of us are going to get another long weekend off thanks to the weather this week

We started off ok and now heading towards 3pm had a packet storm!!!

Everything working ICT wise....
Sent the first TXT to all staff and parents that the school was open at 7:15 for then to get into school and for an executive decision to be made that the carparks were impassable and that the school would have to close. So a second text was sent to advise that the school was now closed.
Good news this afternoon is that a decision has been taking to close the school tomorrow also - awaiting a snow plough to return tomorrow to finish the clearing job. Further bad weather forecast for the rest of the week too.
