    'The Network' is a catch-all term for any piece of equipment or software that interacts with your IT infrastructure.
    Hence, if any part fails then "The Network is down".

    There's no sound when playing a DVD but it's fine on the internet = the volume control in the DVD player software is at the bottom or muted.

    Keep notes on EVERYTHING
    You will forget the simplest thing once you haven't done it for a while

    No one can be an expert in all areas of IT - so find someone who is and listen to their advice

    Unless it is the Head. At that point you become a saviour to whom they are eternally grateful ... which, for some people, lasts until 5 minutes before your annual review. (cynic mode disengaged)
