    Well I know one of our regular posters here from Brum has his server/ICT support room in an old converted toilet area. At one point they had a blockage in the sewerage system. Guess where the raw sewerage came out.....!
    Dont say that. We're about to convert some toilets. Although they are never used, but still. eeuw!. BTW eduabncs: have you blocked msn / windows messenger again? for some reason i can never connect... Not sure if it's bcs of our imimic server though.

    My understanding is that it has been blocked for the moment.

    I understand the concerns, but surely that decision could be put into the hands of individual network managers. We can block it on our internal networks if we so choose. It's just sometimes useful for communications with each other in the ict dept, as well as people in other schools, industry, etc.

    Sorry to whinge eduabncs, i'm sure it's not your fault. It just gets frustrating when things are filtered as false positives and decisions about what we can and cant use on the network are taken out of our hands.

    Re: What an afternoon!

    Wouldn't it be nice if your RBC had a jabber server that you could all use ... and that there was a nationwide one for technical staff ... or a national IRC Channel ...

    But there isn't ... and we have to resort to shouting loudly and hoping for the best.

    ok ... I tell a lie ... there are several authorities that have jabber boxes or channels for people to communicate on ... but nothing that is national. But it is a start.

    .....that's been fixed but it still rains on apeo through the window

    As for blocking MSN or anything else - we just say it's BGFLs fault and most go away mumbling curses on them instead of us Don't worry eduabncs we've not given them your contact details. (yet!!!)
