    Oh they're complaining, they're on the phone to the caretaker asking him to clean the nasty words off the interwebs.

    LOL! I remember the Senior Office Manager being asked to remove nasty posts about the school I worked at from Facebook, I was stood in the room as NM and couldn't help but smile.

    8am, last day of term
    Teacher: Can i have a Sharepoint set up so i can create a onenote that students can access from home over the holidays

    Lets see... 1) the school doesn't have sharepoint, 2) we don't have enough reverse proxy addresses to set it up, 3) students finished last friday so there is no way to distribute the details to them anyway

    .. same here - and these people are forging the minds of the future....

    Although the strangest request I've had happened about 2 months ago: "Can you kill a pigeon with a shovel?"

    Basically there was a hurt pigeon and the teacher wanted to put it out of its misery - but was too squemish to - so naturally you ask the network manager to do so

    A quick box up and over to the RSPCA with them (by our lovely estates team) .

    We offer support to the local primaries

    so had a call from the one day a week tech there

    tech - "Could you come help us we have lost internet connectivity in one our huts on both wired and wireless. I've tried everything to get it working"

    long discussion about setup and switches etc etc *sends 12 miles to school*

    our tech walks in plugs two cat5 back in the wall one for the pc one for the AP (apparently he throughly checked all the connections) and left without saying a word

    Just got this through...made me laugh:

    "My interactive pen nib fell out yesterday and got lost.

    I then wanted to bring the pen to you to replace the nib but I lost it on
    the way.

    Can anything be done?"
