    I think I would prefer to be lonely at least when your lonely nothing major is going wrong.

    Same here (aside from the one day a week I'm currently at the main site) - ah, the thought of having a shoebox to call my own...

    I don't have a cupboard ATM. I'm based in the Library, but that's been out of action for various reasons all day, so I'm currently camped in the staff room.

    We have a converted cupboard, long thin room which I reckon only IT would live with but I like it

    If the system is quiet wander around and see how people are using your kit, get to know your users better and you might get some new ideas and get more popular in the process (not suggesting you aren't already!)

    Try being a data manager in a cupboard. Glad for a shared office now. \o/

    Couldn't do with being locked away. I chat too much. It's nice to have the option when you need to read up on stuff, and a "Do Not Disturb" sign often goes ignored by staff and students alike, but it's a team effort in all. After all, without people to share a joke with it can get very samey!

    The Sci teacher comes up to visit every now and again (by visit I mean see if I've got my PC in to play Crysis) which is always a good laugh - but with the NM and I its never a dull day! Would be nice to see the SMT dropping by now and again but hey what can you do!

    I get very lonely. In one school I have an office stuck away at one end of the school. I only see people as I pass through the corridors - I try to mingle but the teachers are all teaching whilst I am there. Sometimes I hardly speak to anyone. My other school WAS better as I was tucked away in a corner of the IT suite, but the IT suite has been moved and there is no room for me so from next term I will be in my corner in what now will be the Library. So I will be alone again.
    I do add 10 mins or so to my three hours if I can so that I can sit in the staff room at the beginning of the day but invariably someone asks me to go and sort something out so I dont have time.
