Servers Upgraded - Thanks to You

We have migrated all our websites onto new upgraded servers and they're seriously quick. Thank you for working with us on what was (from our end) a huge project. During the transition, one of our schools asked us, "so what is a server?" Well the best way of discribing it is, what electricty is to a light bulb, a server is to a website. 

Here's a few fun facts to finish off the year from techo land;
  • sponsor-ed serves-up over 1 million webpage views every month (see why the upgrade is important?)
  • in the early hours of every morning, your school's website is backed up, just in case. 
  • servers rock!

A Story About Parenting

There are three balloons. Mummy, Daddy and Baby balloon. Over the early years, Baby balloon slept in the same bed as Mummy and Daddy balloon. Daddy balloon takes Baby balloon aside one day and tells him that he's made him a new bed and that he is to sleep there from now on.

During the night Baby balloon is scared sleeping on his own and so sneaks back into bed with Mummy and Daddy balloon. Baby balloon tries to squeeze inbetween the two of them but can't get enough room. He reaches over and let's a little air out of Mummy balloon, but to no avail he still doesn't have room. He then reaches over to Daddy balloon and lets a little air out of him. Still he can't quite fit in. Finally he lets a lot of air out off himself. He fits in nicely and falls asleep.

In the morning when Mummy and Daddy awaken they find Baby balloon in bed with them. Daddy balloon looks sad and shakes his head at Baby balloon and says.

"Son I told you to sleep in your own bed didn't I ?"
" Yes Daddy I'm sorry"
" Well son , you have let me down, you have let your mother down but most of all you have let yourself down"
