    Sometimes teachers are nice to you

    I've to install 28 desktops in a school over the hols and I stuck up a little tongue in cheek request for everyone to save me time by opening up one box each.

    I've just had to unpack 40 PC's myself yesterday. Nightmare. But if I did what you have done parts would have gone missing. Some would probably take the PC. The amount of people that say 'Oooo new Pc's....'

    Just unpacked 20 computers and sending an image as we speak, I need some teachers like yours is so time consuming opening them all and throwing away the packaging multiple trips to the recycling the other side of our school, more coming next week but I'll be gone then :P every teacher that has been past the window as I'm setting them up has asked for a new computer and whats happening with the old ones as theirs at home is slow.

    Must be so hard to buy a new one if I didn't know any better I'd assume its impossible from what our staff say

    This annoys me.

    They earn enough to buy a new computer, leave the old ones for the poor staff/students.

    I wonder if that could have been applied for building computers if we left good enough instructions! (built 60 a couple of weeks ago)
