    Re: A Question About The Holidays

    I think I'm going to renew my calls for keys to all the rooms again when I get back. It is kinda silly having to wait to get things done all the time. An example would be our science block and the Year 5 block which both get locked over lunch time, and due to the site manager being in charge of managing the kids over lunch I can't get in unless he has a spare moment. It effectively means that I can't do any work when it would be best for me to do that work...

    Let me know how it goes.

    Maybe we should start a revolution? Do you think it would make the news?

    I think it might work.

    I didn't think of the bumper stickers! We need a catchy slogan as well, something like:
    [align=center]We're in charge of IT, so give us a key![/align]
    or something more aggressive like:
    [align=center]Give us the keys, otherwise we'll delete all your personal files[/align]

    Right, now all we need to do is put these slogans on placards and stand outside our respective schools on a given day at a given time (but within distance of the wi-fi connection so that we can remain in contact).

    Brilliant, you can be our communications engineer - this revolution is really starting to take shape: we have slogans, placards, and all those pringles cans I collected as a student are now going be put to good use.

    To add to the pringles approach, my home office is located in my garage which is on the other side of the garden - to pick up the wi-fi signal from the house I covered a colander in tin foil and placed a usb 802.11 dongle inside, and the makeshift satellite dish doubled my signal strength!

    There's got to be a Blue Peter badge for that one! I bet they don't give that solution on the Network management courses!

    You mean there are courses I can go on?!? I just thought the purpose of this job was to nod my head and sound like I know what I'm doing, and then google the problem and find the solution.

    As for the blue peter badge, you're very kind. Sadly, I don't think they award them to people my age.
