    Jeb's Jobs - Technical Support

    You might want to listen to this with headphones at first - or at least not in earshot of students.

    "In Episode 1, the purple sausage freak takes on a job manning the IT support helpline."

    http://www.weakend.co.uk/movs/jebsjobs.html

    That's cheered up my day - reminds me of my earlier life on Helldesks!

    Fantastic!

    It's been a miserable couple of days - NM's off with a bad back, big printer's fuser unit curled up and died, people are climbing up on desks to turn the aircon OFF, there are engineers here to put in a phone line to our server room without having any paperwork about the job, and I'm sorry but I don't know what was agreed because I wasn't involved, and generally everyone wants everything now! including an entire suite upgraded to new software for some training in a few minutes, and yes (says the teacher asking me) I would have checked earlier but I knew the software was installed on another machine in another building on site so I assumed it would be installed here...

    *breathes*

    But now that animation has quite made my day

    That was great, and for sure is being downloaded into my to keep movie folder. My last job was like that minus the phone. Walk to a room and 3 people shouted you. By the time you dealt with the 3rd person 4 more shouted for help.

    Before anyone from my old school gets ideas after watching the video. That powercut cut you had because someone cut though the cables had nothing to do with me.

    Sorry I missed that gig now! Hope Grumbledook didn't mind my putting up this link, I couldn't see it in the rest of the forum. Still, it did give others a laugh.

    Loved the 3 Dead Trolls - where do you guys find this stuff?

    Heck no ... I don't mind ... I've had a chat with Nick about the Jeb animations and he thinks it wonderful that it was used for conference ... and is happy for it to be passed round as many people as possible.
