    Re: basic maintenance

    This is one of my main bugbears. On the hours I get, I NEVER have time to do any maintenance and it is limited to dusting/vacuuming the outside when i get a chance.
    I try to schedule things but it is not easy in this school and NOONE gets the 'regular maintenance' thing

    Re: basic maintenance

    Talking about dust in PCs - the funniest thing I've come across was on a private job where the custard was complaining that the machine kept rebooting after an hour or so of use. I duly went along to have a look and the cause......."to stop dust and fluff getting inside the case" he'd used gaffer tape on all the vents that were on the front of the case......seriously, I kid you not.

    On the other hand I had the same problem, and the cause - It was under a desk in a very dusty office and used as a resting place for the staff's jumpers, scarves, coat's. The server was so full of fluff and dust it was thickly felted onto the boards, I just had to peel them off.
    The staff didn't believe me.

    £16.50 every two weeks to get it done hurts when you calculate it on an annual basis.

    Not sure that she would be terribly keen on the use of the word 'quite' in that sentence!!

    Re: basic maintenance

    We do it out of hours (teaching day ends at 4, ours at 5.15)..reimage if an old build is found or a machine is arsing about, otherwise a rota for cleaning projectors and SMARTboards, wiping screens/KBs/Mice, and every summer we crack open the rigs and blow them out using a compressor, then check and tidy all the wiring.
