    I know it's a radical departure guys, and apologies to D. McCoy, but we're working towards a better world here.

    well here's a funny thing Gatt, I've always wanted a linen suit, and a few weeks ago I saw one in a sale and bought it. It's still hanging in the closet, covered in plastic. I've a real dilema going on here.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    I think this thread has been hijacked by the iron mongers! :?

    I've been lurking for awhile after an introduction from Gatt, thanks buddy because this place has been a god send. Anyway, I thought I'd better introduce myself.

    My name's Dave and I'm a manager for an IT company where one of my roles is the support of several local primary schools.

    Before finding this site I was getting some weird and wonderful problems and I had a total lack of support, but thankfully this place has sorted things out for me.

    Anyway I will no doubt be posting a bit in the future and so I'll apologise in advance! :P

    Welcome Dave ... don't worry about the obsessions that some members have ... just be happy that we have a release from the stresses of the job.

    I am looking at setting up a new domain though ... www.ironinganonymous.org.uk ... just in case

    Hi all,

    I'm Mark and I am currently in a weird position as being a teacher but also a techie as well. I kind of inherited the techie partt as I have more experience using computers, running networks, etc... than anybody else in the school.

    Interesting Mark! [and welcome BTW ]

    So did you have any instructional experience before? A local tech came from a training backgroud and got moved into teaching a few lessons a week. You could say that for us all about the experience bit ...personally teaching is really not what I want to do - I enjoy helping out in lessons, it's just the preperation I know I hate!

    Well I have been using computers now for 23 years and made a deliberate move into teaching so I am fully qualified as a teacher. It just so happened that with staff "moving on" I ended up helping out on the network side - as much for my own sanity as anything else.
