speckytecky (14th October 2008)
I'm with Unison, my parents are nurses so they were part of them, my dad was a rep. When i went to do nurse training i joined them and have been with them ever since.
I used to get really paranoid when i was first on here at my old job, all i did was moan. But since then i've found out a certain ex boss let themself into my facebook account. I know they havent got massive security, but to take the time to "hack" into my account is really sad!
I think what upset them most is the fact it said "little miss has left her job as ICT Technician/Dogsbody at .......school.

Its sad to see you go Jake, the forum will be less commical in your absence. I do hope that you can find a way around your oppressers and continue to participate in some way.
Whilst i guess details cannot be discussed, can somebody fill me into what caused this thread to be made? Whats gone on?
To sum it up,
I made a thread with a query on a problem we were having with a certain piece of well known school management software. I began the thread with a somewhat tongue in cheek rant at an unnamed member of staff, as a lighthearted prelude to the more serious portion of my post (As of course many of you are aware, I tend towards the lighthearted quite often).
I am very careful never to name names, or indeed even give the name of my school, or even my county. So there were no identifiers involved.
However, there are maybe 3 people on here who actually know who and where I work. So it doesnt take a rocket scientist to work out who did what follows..
Someone at our LA, printed out the thread, and passed it to the school in an unstamped envelope, which was then shown to the unnamed member of staff. Which of course has left me in alot of hot water, despite the fact that I used no names, and did nothing more really than the forum equivalent of talking down the pub to a mate about my day.
There are further issues as to what I have been using Edugeek for, in relation to the management software in question, but thats a seperate issue really.
Where it will go from here, I do not yet know. To be blindingly honest my work morale was pretty much at a deepened low before this morning, so this has simply smashed my morale through the floor. At the moment, the french foreign legion is looking mighty inviting.
I guess this is the final post by Jake, you've been a great and often useful bunch, helped to solve alot of varied issues and more importantly given me a way to talk openly with my peers who work in the same industry and are familiar with the same issues, frustrations and unique situations that we find ourselves in. Sadly it seems that being able to talk openly, perhaps emotionally, even if in jest, is no longer allowed in the UK, so for fear of my every post being watched like a hawk now I must bid you all adieu.

I thought Jake's NM was on here (or sub ordinate, sorry I can't remember which)
Didn't anyone fight for him and express an opinion as to how useful Edugeek is to the hard working and hard-pressed tech?
I did think his 'rant' was maybe a little OTT but given that most of us have no idea who or where he is, I can't see that anything more than a slap on the wrist and a 'back in your cage, Jake' was really needed - not even that really
How sad a place the world can be at times.
I have a group of 4-5 techie friends, we often caht together in IRC in the evenings discussing work headaches etc.
Although I dont often post here I have been using the forums a lot for research which I know has helped me in my job and my employer has benefited from my increased knowledge.
Its a shame when employers dont see that fact that forums can save schools a lot of money simply because if you are not sure how to do something, come here, quick post and usually with in 1/2 an hour you have enough replys to get on with what you wanted.
I did see you are on the Sunny South Coast Jake, was just curious as to where you are based?
Shame on those members - how small minded! It just makes me realise how truly backward some management can be. They personify the wrong way to do their job.
Cheers Jake for your great input to these forums. You were key.
