This year, I don't feel like I have time to do anything during my preps. I don't have a desire to be on the net just messing around during the day.
Today, when I got to school and the internet in the building was not working, at first, I was not really too concerned. I was thinking that I wouldn't really need it in the morning and that it would be fixed soon enough. I guess I have been spoiled by the other work places that actually give a shit about having internet working in a school - that and that the other places had technology people and an internal server in their buildings.
No such luck here.
It was down all day and they don't even know if it will be back up tomorrow.
There went my plans for copying (which, I'm still trying to figure out why they don't have remote printing so I don't have to email myself a document and then go to a computer in the office to print it to make copies for students), my plans for putting grades into the system since the marking period ends next Tuesday, and my plans to email my social studies mentor-type person about our meeting tomorrow.
But I was fortunately able to get some work done that did not require the internet.
I need to add a printer to my list of things to buy for the apartment. Or maybe ship my old one from StL.
It is amazing how much we we require technology now even though not too long ago it was not a necessity.
If network down at our office --pretty much spell 'disaster.' No one can get work done.ReplyDelete
I can only imagine!!Delete
I can just imagine when my kids are in high school telling them how I used to prepare a paper: looking up the Dewey subject code and skimming all the books in the library. It sounds like "and every night we trudged through the snow to the outhouse when we had to go pee..."ReplyDelete
hahaha! I already torture my offspring with stories of having to flip through those drawers of little cards to see if the library had the/a book I needed/wanted!Delete
I know, right?!Delete
I went into a wine shop and the guy has a frequent buyer system that is just notecards alphabetically in a box by name. He pulls it out and puts a mark on it for each wine bought. My first thought was Dewey, but the guy looks like he is in his early twenties, so I don't even know if he would get the reference.
Gah!! I can't imagine a school not caring about the network being down, or not having remote printing available!ReplyDelete
It is one aspect of the school I don't like.Delete
I had remote printing at places I worked years ago.
I have to agree, I don't understand the not caring about the network being down.ReplyDelete
It was horrible. Two full school days down. Finally came on after school on the second day.Delete
