    All quiet at the front...

    ... well it would be if the TA's wern't blaring out Barry Manilow from the hall speaker system as they tidy out the PE store!

    Apart from that - I might re-image the suite

    I've just gone at the printserver in orderto try and resolve an issue we have with with not being able to restart the spooler. Shame there aren't many staff in to print out. :-(

    I'd do the Windows updates on the servers I've not got around to doing in the evenings yet... Except enough staff are in that I'd get a slap if I rebooted stuff

    Quiet here too. Just had an email from one member of staff requesting that those of us not striking should not send emails to our striking colleagues today so that they don't have a large workload when they come back tomorrow, as it would be unfair to expect them to catch up.

    I think I'll be doing a few group policy tweaks today. Sort out this maze of weirdness that I've inherited.

    Doing all the jobs you can't do when you've got the phone ringing all the time and students and teachers under your feet!

    If only Still got the phone ringing from those that are in!

    I thought about it, as it does have some outstanding upgrades that need doing but we've got students who might want to work on it as well I could ignore the strikers who would complain about it being down, but not the students as it's not their fault that they can't come in today.
