    End of Year Advice

    I offer this advice every year
    By now, there are several people that you wish to shake warmly around the neck!

    DO NOT do this in the next few weeks.

    Plan a proper "accident" for the 3rd of September.

    This way - you will acheive 2 things.

    1. You'll prob avoid going to jail for it. (As we are clever and we'll never get found out )

    2. There is a chance (I know it seems small at the moment but nevertheless its there) that over the summer, you might rethink and not actually implement any action in September (thereby totally avoiding a long stay in a small cell)

    But at least you'll have had great fun coming up with a dastardly plan!

    Si
    PS Please feel free to remind me of this post if you see steam rising in South Lancs Primaries

    The unfortunate thing for staff annoying me at the moment is I'm currently mapping out the PC reshuffle, where the IT rooms are emptied of Decent Computers for New Computers, and I have to work out where the Decent Computers end up so we can get rid of the Rubbish Office Computers. So annoy me now, and have the lower-spec, older machine assigned to you. Take that!

    It's petty, but hey, it's all I have,

    you could always alter the port on the network switch they connect to to 10mb 1/2 duplex

    I wish you the best of luck with that.

    I did that a few weeks ago with just a single departments provision of PCs... so spent a day moving it around. Then was told we want these really really good PCs to go where they won't be supervised, need CD drives, but don't have etc etc.

    In the end... everything's basically back where it came from and I am very not happy.

    Another tip. When you decide to leave, plan it so as few others leave at the same time. The leaving fund doesn't have to stretch so far.
