    I get to spend the day troubleshooting a problem with the ECDL testing site they use here. Just worked out (after much pain and anguish) that running a join.me session seems to stop the error, which is why the remote support have never been able to replicate it. Bloody marvellous!

    Seriously, though, I have reimaged this entire room, with a brand new image, up to date & identical drivers, software and updates across the room, and somehow, SOMEHOW, the same half dozen machines still display the same intermittent and random issue. How is that even possible? Am I being trolled by motherboards here?

    Your students have a day off... and are still working?!

    No :P Not a single logon... But knowing my luck I'd have half the school trying to connect if I did take it down and angry letters from parents :P

    Glad to see some have the easy day, most of our staff are in only about 10 are not and with a 200 staff site thats impressive.

    Staff are already on the case of "I have an easy day what can i complain about", luckily enough I am a multi tasker - sorting out a laptop, frog work and our external site have realised their software isnt working.

    Sun is out, birds are chirping, traffic is non-existant, loving it. Even though the phones and water momentarily joined Unison.

    Not a single print credit request either so far. Can we get Unison to do this more often?

    Back in June we left at 3.10, school finishing time, however we only got the email 20 minutes before, lets hope a similar email appears again.

    Well I'm halfway through re-imageing the suite.

    As usual one of the computers (identical to all the rest) will not play ball - when I run ghost - I get garbage about not being to find the drivers - but apart from that - all going well
