A student just asked If we had a knife to cut cake.
8am, last day of term
Teacher: Can i have a Sharepoint set up so i can create a onenote that students can access from home over the holidays
Lets see... 1) the school doesn't have sharepoint, 2) we don't have enough reverse proxy addresses to set it up, 3) students finished last friday so there is no way to distribute the details to them anyway
Just had a student try to give us a science book...
Teacher: My projector isn't working!
Me: *Presses power button on wall*
Although the strangest request I've had happened about 2 months ago: "Can you kill a pigeon with a shovel?"
Basically there was a hurt pigeon and the teacher wanted to put it out of its misery - but was too squemish to - so naturally you ask the network manager to do so :confused2:
A quick box up and over to the RSPCA with them (by our lovely estates team) .
We offer support to the local primaries
so had a call from the one day a week tech there
tech - "Could you come help us we have lost internet connectivity in one our huts on both wired and wireless. I've tried everything to get it working"
long discussion about setup and switches etc etc *sends 12 miles to school*
our tech walks in plugs two cat5 back in the wall one for the pc one for the AP (apparently he throughly checked all the connections) and left without saying a word
Teacher - I have pigeons in my class, can you help get them out please?
Me - errr, yeah, I guess...
Teacher: Help help! I can't get sound!
Me: *Turns amplifier source selector to 'computer'*
Just got this through...made me laugh:
"My interactive pen nib fell out yesterday and got lost.
I then wanted to bring the pen to you to replace the nib but I lost it on
Can anything be done?"
Can we change our e-mail addresses as they get oxon and sch mixed up.
