    Same here. Not IT Though, or a few maths rooms...they've been replaced with cheapy atomic setters. No point in going for old "manual" clocks now, IMO.

    Why not sell your SMT on a trendy wireless one?

    Talking

    Weve just bought a new system, I believe its called a sounder. Its great because we can play different ringtones for different breaks; we can even create our own which the staff think its brilliant !

    Ive attached the link in case everyone is interested..

    Fecking right! That is a central heating timer! OK, it will do what it needs to do, but I doubt it does it nicely.

    We don't have bells, very civilized, but few lessons actually end on time, which makes the boys late for the next lesson.

    Unless the school is small physically, the significant cost would be in wiring to disparate buildings. It may be possible to do something clever with bells triggered by PCs but that would be bespoke and costly.

    As I write, I'm having ideas. I've just bought a serial to TCP/IP device, and I wonder if the supplier might do TCP to relay... I'll get back to you when the catalogue is in front of me!
