    Teacher:
    "Can I have access to this please -
    Link to dodgy torrent streaming software hosted on Russian website....
    I only need it for a couple of days "

    Me:
    "No not really, it's going to be 99% illegal..."

    Teacher:
    "Yes I thought that, but worth asking...."

    Me muttering to myself:
    No, it really isn't.

    The other thing this week is the school has a letting to a dance club after hours... I'm working late because of a network problem. It's 7pm... I'm walking through reception looking like I have just crawled through a dust covered roof space for two hours - you know, 'cos I had....

    Arty Dancer lady: your the it guy, can you set up my iPhone, pretty please. - fluttering eyelashes etc

    Me: what!? - oh you have so got the wrong guy.

    Arty dancer lady: oh it's new and I don't know how to set it up. Purrrrrlease...

    Me: HAHAHAHAHA!
    And walked of not saying anything...

    I'd have replied "I know a couple of ex-pupils who can get it. You'll probably need a new computer though - and TV and Sky box."

    I realise that technique often works (not with me - too many years helping run a night club) but why? Logically, the chances of any return on a guy's time when a lady deploys such tactics is going to be nil! Well done, @Jasbo!

    Probably has something to do with it not being cool to be a nerd when techy types were growing up.


    Something something psychology something feels.

    Ah! I'm glad Barry the cat is having such a wonderful time! He needs a break. I'm happy he decided to date Sarah seen in the picture above, I was worried he would carry on dating the "I can't hug every cat lady" and we all know where that was going to go.... to clingy!

    Today, I sorted out the computers on our 2 main office desks. The occupants have swapped desks, not their choice, and the setup wasn't quite right for either. Spending an hour swapping kit over and tidying up cabling isn't that interesting, but I have earned an awful lot of brownie points
