Fire! Where's the register... :)
Ok, so with usual foresight, we in IT have been told that we have a fire drill tomorrow...
So down comes the Deputy head and says "what solutions does your Network Manager have in place for taking registers if the building is burning down around us?". The answer: "nada". The response: "get one." (well, substitute half and hours pointless discussion for that, but you get the idea...).
So, what software do you guys use to register students in case of fire? Does it require network access (if so what happens if the server room is suicde bombed by an outraged member of tech support?).
Or do you rely on a paperbased system?
