    Yesterday a teacher stops me in the coridoor and rants at me about the fact there was no toner in the printer and she had to save all the kids work onto a memory stick to print out on the office printer. I stopped for a minute and asked why she didnt send a kid up to get me to change one. She glares at me and says "I never thought of that" and walks off...

    I get kids coming to me saying that the computers aren't working. The power LED is on but there's no image on the screen. I see them turning the screen off and on and still have no image on the screen. It's quite amusing when I ask them if they've tried moving the mouse

    Maybe setting Windows 7 to turn the display off after 15 minutes was a bad idea..

    This I can handle.

    It's the steering wheel in my jeans that's driving me nuts.

    I'm not sure about that. I've worked in a lot of places too, multi-nationals, small businesses etc and the main difference I notice working at a school is that in an office/corporate situation, the user-base aren't actively hell-bent on destroying the equipment, by-passing the filtering-systems and generally abusing the provided facilities. Of course, you get the odd one who wants to access his/her favourite, but blocked, web-site or tries to download something to save his/her home bandwidth and one extreme case where a user was trying to upload pre-release albums and games from work to home, but never anyone picking the keys off keyboards, ripping the plugs off ethernet cables, tearing the buttons off mice, writing and scratching on monitors and such. Basically, they know if they do that, they're going to be disciplined, charged for the damage or just plain sacked.

    SLT here take no notice that we're spending 250+ per term to replace keyboards, mice and various cables.

    Not sure if it's just here where there's a culture of 'No Consequence' or schools in general.

    Surprised no teaching/ict staff has come on here to defend teachers? I guess there is no defense against lack of common sense

    I think that was the case with 2003/2007 but I believe 2010 stores individual copies (Three storage features eliminated from Exchange 2010 | TechRepublic).

    One thing I realised with Exchange 2010 was our mailbox space - GREW.

    Our previous HD Space wouldnt of been enough to carry the mailboxs, logs alone also fill up much more. I wouldnt have thought it was *linked because their mailbox sizes still grew for each user? but if thats the case doesnt matter if it isnt the same with 2010. Luckily enough I always like a buffer and we had an additional 100GB available, which can fill up quickly though.

    Actually the call was responded to out of sheer curiosity :-)

    slowly the "Now this i've GOT to see" is being beaten out me, because of the precedent it sets. today it may be a squirrel, tomorrow a shoal of ill tempered mutated sea bass.

    Seen squirrels, seen toilets.

    I guess I'm just not that curious anymore.

    We're now officially miserable g*ts because we said no to streaming a live feed of the final day's jollities over the network to all the registration room PCs. I think they thought it would be something we could do in five minutes with no expense involved.

    You *could* set it up using VLC player. See angrytech blog for info on streaming live TV over VLC
