    We had a few people complaining (not just one, that would have almost been acceptable!!) that when they sent an email to Nicola using "nday", she never got it. We pointed out that was because "Nicola's" email address was "ncday", "nday" was "Nick", a different person. They weren't complaining and then accepting that answer, they wanted us to "correct" it! Correct what!?!?! Us having two people with similar names and you typing the email address in wrong??

    Teacher: There is a problem wit the PC in the staffroom.
    Me: What the problem with it?
    Teacher: It says some error about something.
    Me: What does it say exactly, you need to give me a clue.
    Teacher: Sorry I didn't even read it if I am honest.
    Me: Ok which PC was it.
    Teacher: I can't remember it was one of them though.
    Me: There are 10 in that room and you want me to waste my time checking all of them,
    that is like going to KwikFit and saying I have some problem with my car its one of the ones in the car park and walking off.
    Teacher: Seriously I have done something very similar to that.


    No word of a lie, you could not make it up.

    Surely you should have told them "Just do Ctrl+Alt+Delete."

    Teacher email response:The computers in the 269 computer lab, are themselves quite old - they even have the old 3" floppy drive so my guess is they are pre Windows 9. I would understand that it might not be advisable to install old software on 27 old PCs. But the curriculum for this class is supposed to utilize keyboarding software”

    After reading it 4 times, what they are saying is please install this KB software if you can. I know the computers are old and it (somehow) shouldn't be installed on old PCs but we need it.

    I was able to remote into the computers a few moments ago and found the keyboarding software already installed. Also all the computers were running windows XP SP3 and actually were previously used for autocad a few years ago, the OS may be old but they got plenty of power for a school computer. The teacher left for the weekend so I was unable to correct her

    Not an IT stupid question by feel its worth a mention.
    Teacher finally reports to caretakers that he can't shut his classroom door and has not been able to do so 3 weeks. Caretakers come to classroom and simply remove a larger stone from the door jam
    WTF

    When there is a small problem with a computer do staff blow it out of ll proportion? For example SIMS crashed on someones machine. They come up saying "oh my god what on earth has happened to the SIMS server, you need to fix this quick etc".

    Another one that happened last week.

    "My network connection is not working, I am plugged in and checked all the cables, perhaps a system wide problem!!!".

    *Walks in and plugs other end of the network cable in to the wall*

    Magic.

    Did you really get a "perhaps"? I would expect them to TELL you it was a system-wide problem
