On 20 Apr, a bunch of us moved to our temporary office at Level 5, BIZ2 Building.
At 830am, our office at HSSML was starting to look deserted. Our glass-topped desks winked under the glare of the fluorescent lights. Probably very glad from being freed of the years of cumulated clutter.
At the Basement of the library, our 2 “mei-nu” helped the OED movers to get our boxes of PCs, monitors, files and all sorts of stuff loaded on to the lorry.
Level 5, BIZ2 isn’t exactly the most accessible of places. The OED chaps had to stop the lorry near the BIZ guard post, unloaded all the boxes on to trolleys to be pushed right through the canteen to the set of staircases on Level 4.
At the foot of the staircase of Level 4, we unloaded all the boxes so that each of us took one box at a time up the stairs to Level 5. Uh-huh, there isn’t a lift.
After we got all our boxes in, we started settling down. The first thing that got set up was the clock!
And the first thing we discovered as we got ready to start work was… there was no network connection. Only one point had a network connection so only one IP phone worked. Here is Bizad School’s IT technical officer on the phone with Comp Centre trying to get our network connection up and running.
Suffice to say, we are settling down quite nicely now (although the printer is not quite working yet).
