We asked about 3 weeks ago - told we were far too late as there had been alot of interest but they'd let us know if anyone dropped out. Standard response I guess - no surprise we have heard nothing since.
Anyone applying now I imagine will have no chance unless they know someone who knows someone etc..

To be honest the only things that would intrest me are the touch screens.

Olympic ICT equipment - Econocom response
Hello, I am Chris Labrey, Country Manager at Econocom,in charge of reassigning the Olympic ICT equipment. The PCs and laptops are oversubscribed but there are plenty of servers and touchscreens left. There is a waiting for PCs and laptops and Acer/Econocom have promised to provide new equipment at discount to those schools that miss out.
