    Except on EduGeek

    Still I suppose the NM wants to be their own wo/man or do you do topolgy planning, assigning server roles etc?

    Re: Technician Numbers

    I do strategy stuff ... I work with departments, external agencies, peer-support groups (not just this one ... there are others out there).

    I do make large chunks of the long-term decisions ... how many servers, how we spend the money, what departments we should be nice to ... but Stephen has his input.

    The ideal point we are working towards is where Stephen is his own man ... and just tells me what is happeneing day to day ... puts things in place for mid-term stuff ... based around what I set up long term.

    We both give feedback to one another ... I provide the cash, leadership backing and educational vision ... he provides the man-power, the technical expertise and the sense of humour ... we both provide ideas and chocolate hob nobs.
