So great is the demise ...

Having a skype conversation today with someone who needed help with an educational issue which one is more than happy to resolve. I alluded to where I once worked and how we were currently helping them out of a bit of a situation as it indirectly affected their centre.

Conversation pottered along quite nicely then they shared an interesting observation - they used to work at another further education college where their head of department would wax lyrical about the place I once worked at. Often promising the team that one day they would go and see this great college at work.

Hmmm - with the shit having hit the fan. I did agree that once there was a great college and a great computing team. But left in the hands of a great numpty the college managed to career down a path of its own demise.

Sad isn't it - that which was once great is now alas somewhat shite.

  1. Time to retire and leave all that bullsh*t behind you Andrew - there's almost a mirror example of that here. But now I waltz around various institutions as a sessional when I feel so inclined and it is so great to wander in, say hi, deliver my lecture, lab, or tutorial, say bye, and wander out again. :-D
