    Nah, they bring them to me in September and ask for them to be installed by.... September
    Or they come to you in the 3rd week of the new term to complain that you haven't installed the software that they bought 2 weeks earlier, didn't tell you about and they don't know where the disks are.

    Or they come to you with a Trial version and want you to stick it on every machine (including all staff laptops) for a training session that evening.

    And I suppose we do ourselves no favours when we actually manage it ... we get a reputation for performing miracles at short notice .... we should all have a sign on our doors ... "Miracles I can do today ... the impossible will have to wait until tomorrow!"

    Well as a teacher and a line manager I would never ask you to do such a thing at such short notice (except ...... !) The simple answer is - no problem - but you'll have to join the queue.

    paull - then you r one of the few sensible teachers as most that I know ("most") will ask this type of thing on a daily basis!
    As for join the Q - they dont seem to know what one is and expect to be at the top regardless! (I am not trying to teacher bash here, I have a great respect for thoses of you that DO understand that we have more to do than just YOUR work, my thoughts here r based on the majority of experiences I have had).

    Of course there are those unforeseen circumstances when sometimes it is necessary to 'jump' into action

    Re: ..Install software?

    Welcome Paul - nice to see you here.

    I'm increasingly plagued by this problem - the quantity of ICT equipment increases but there's still just lonesome old me sorting it out.

    This is where helpdesk systems, call logging, SLA's etc come in [as hopefully addressed by FITS] to manage the problem.

    It's hard to appease staff tho' who are used to a fast response. Just a shame it aint possible any more.
