**Disaster**
Unfortunately technology has bitten back this week. On St David's Day (March 1st) I had a fab day taking many many photographs of pupils in National Costumes and of us playing and performing on the day. In the evening I began to download the photographs to the Apple MacBook - then DISASTER!!!, I hadn't noticed how low the cameras battery was, it ran out giving me a warning message about loss of data. I had to wait then until the following morning when my batteries had recharged before I was able to check out what had happened, sure enough -the camera said that the xd card required formatting!!!!! in doing so it cleared the card - ALL PHOTOGRAPHS NOW GONE. All of the work of the day before is now lost, I was devastated and will now have to gather images from other members of staff - Technology Bites Back : (

A cautionary tale for us all. I asked yesterday whether anyone was backing up the administration computer! No! I warned that it WILL fail at some time and they will wish they had a back-up. I think they think that I am overly cautious.

Anything that can go wrong at some stage will go wrong!
