Iâ€™m really fortunate in my job to be supported by a fantastic I.T team, not only are they completely on-the-ball but have a cool sense of humour. As you can see my Laptop has suffered a bit of a crisis, in that the â€˜Zâ€™ key has fallen off limiting how much â€˜_ingâ€™ my writing can have!
In a fairly tongue in cheek move I e-mailed I.T support asking for advice on my one-key-short of a keyboard crisis. The e-mail I got back was class. They said,
â€˜not sure what we can do about it but in the meantime use the following and â€˜cut and pasteâ€™zzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZâ€™
Itâ€™s been interesting recently as I spend a bit of time working within local authority settings. I.T within one of these settings is really naff and I could not do my job effectively or creatively if I had to work with their limited and outdated set up.
Being a youth worker in a Church can be EVEN more of a challenge. With one job I did I was promised an office, which in fact turned out to be a room NOT any equipment. Worst story I heard recently though was a new youth minister appointment where the applicant was promised a new lap top. HOWEVER on starting the job the Church Minister stepped in and claimed the lap-top then dumped his ancient computer on the youth minister!
