    Smile Getting ready for the end of term

    ... which for us is 12 noon tomorrow

    The reports have finally been printed, so the printers can go back on strike now.
    My new server is on order.
    There's a massive box of chocolate biscuits in the staff room.
    The sun's out and we have a whole school picnic in the grounds this afternoon.

    I may be working during the holidays, but it's so much quieter without the children and teachers!

    I 'm feeling less stressed already!

    amazing how much more work you can do without teachers and students. And how much better the network works, how there's fewer problems.

    If only there was a solution where you could continue to run the network without them indefinately....

    Lucky you!

    Still got two weeks to go before I have the joy of a network that has absolutely no issues once more. You have made me quite jealous!

    Last week of term: got to unbox and set up a whole IT suite of new beasts, rename and move the ones they replace into the ICTAC suite, scrap the old machines, image the new ones and then sort out AD and inventory
    And in the other school...install all the WAPS on the ceilings and then make sure the whole Ruckus thing works, get the newsletter out and sort out the website.
    Phew!

    Hour and a half to go...

    Choccies on my desk

    Poruguese cleaner who is absolutely lovely has baked a massive cake for Year 6 and given them all cards, prompting another outburst of tears from them.

    Roll on 12 o'clock!
