The good news is that the solid state drive survived just fine and the laptop still boots!
it's still a write off though. :(
shame he had amazing battery life...
Ran over? wtf?
put my bag behind the car whilst looking for something in the boot, forgot bag, reversed for a bit annnnnd plop...
That's a great start to the day. Now you just need to accidentally wipe all the servers, and you'll have a perfect day... :p
I had a headteacher do that many moons ago, and she went on to be a top ofsted bod! lol
@chazzy2501 - How did you explain that away?? The IT Bod ran over his laptop!!!! You wont live this down with the teaching staff if they find out!!!
Oh no! Nightmare!
(but kind of funny, too. Sorry.)
Time to find your inner spin doctor skills :)
Just a really good demonstration of how your back-up procedures work in even the most trying circumstances. You did back it up didn't you?
You've also chanced on the perfect timing to implement the Alistair Campbell speciality of finding a good day to bury bad news :) Today, of all days, no-one will care about something so trivial...
First thing that's made me laugh today though....
When staff used to have laptops here, 2 people did it in the same week. I have run over my own lunch doing the same thing. Easy done!
Not quite the same, but I reversed my car into my wife's (me backing out of the garage, her car on the drive) on a day I had to be early for work and was in a hurry.
Very easily done.
Wut a numpty, and admitted it with pictures on a tech forum! Do you teach as well ?
You've just won "Dipstick of the Week" well done Chaz!
Good job it wasn't a Macbook don't think that would have survived and it would have been a lot more expensive to replace :(
Anyway I think you got cast iron gonads for actually admitting it with pictures.
Hope your day gets better :)
Going to write an email to the head in a moment... I could spin it as a testament to the ruggedness of the SSD and that it was a deliberate test?
This is actually a continuation of yesterdays bad luck. Last lunch time I somehow spilled rice pudding in my lap in the food hall. I had to get rid of it and the longer I waited the worse the stain on my crotch would be. Unfortunately there is only a certain amount of times you can interact with your crotch in a room full of children before people start to question your motives. Somehow I'd also got rice pudding on my hand so when I was removing my crotch pudding I put new pud on my thigh and foot. At this moment I thought "I should keep spare clothes in the boot of my car"
