    Re: A Christmas stocking filler competition

    There was one evening when I was phoned at home by a Deputy Head who wanted me to come into school to fix his laptop as it was needed for parents evening. I was in the middle of telling him that it would take me about an hour to get in to work when my daughter who was 3 at the time garbbed the phone and proceeded to tell him that "her daddy was busy making Play-doh cakes" with her and then cut off the call.

    I think that was EXACTLY the right response from your daughter.
    It was far more important to play with her than go and sort out the teacher, however bad his problem.
    Work life balance, and all that stuff

    C'mon guys. The closing date is Sunday 24th at 2pm. I'll announce the winners at about 8pm ish (depending on children going to bed), and thanks to us actually getting paid now we will get the prizes to the winners by the first week in Jan. The first prize is quite good BTW.

    Aren't we all supposed to have a program that generates a daily excuse to give to callers who say "well what was wrong?".
    Our call tracking system generates a 'scapegoat of the day' to whom all blame is automatically assigned. I would love to say that the selection is based on some complex algorithm using the call stats, but sadly it's just random.

    Re: A Christmas stocking filler competition

    Not me so cheating a little. A 6th form student (one of my very good and very trusted techies) decided to show us how great the HP pro curves we had just replaced with netgears....they costs loads so they are way better he said... watch this....
    So he took the pro curve plug a cable into it from the network and said watch this:
    So he got one end of an network cable and pluged it in...no we said...its fine he said, its a procurve they are expense, they stop stuff like this....so he plugged the other end in...

    Phew we thought.......... until 30 seconds later the system monitoring went off, and another 30 seconds the phone was ringing none stop...

    So, lesson learned,...loop backs are bad, unless you have STP turned on! and it looks like even expenses ones dont have it on by default........

    Jo

    ps. real loopbacks are a pain, esp when you have to search the whole school!!!

    Sorry, I'm running late due to family commitments. I will post results as soon as I can.


    *A 2 year old who has just learnt about Santa and knows tomorrow is Xmas is one great way to fill a day.

    Re: A Christmas stocking filler competition

    I apologise for the delay in getting prizes to people. Rest assured we are dealing with this in the next couple of days. It was a mixture of BETT and a lack of money getting in the way. All is well now.
