The Janitor Factor

Stanford SID Monitors
I went in to check on our monitor at the Peabody School in Cambridge, only to find all of the furniture piled in the hall way! I expected the worst and was not disappointed! The monitor and computer was in a pile on a lab bench so the computer table could be moved to clean the floors! I spent an hour tracking down a janitor to find out when the floors would be finished. When I found "Buddy", I was informed the that the summer was not the time for "special electrical space thing experiments". Ugh! After some patient explaining I got out of him that the floor would be ready by next week some time and I could set the computer back up agian.

The good news is that I spoke with a high school student who is working for a summer program that is running in the school and will check up on the monitor regularly. He may also be interested in looking at some of the data and try to make some sense out of it.

I believe someone suggested here that we find a closet to put the computer in over the summer. I thought that was a bit of over kill but it looks like that was the right thing to do. At the very least it should go on a counter that can not be moved. The only problem finding is power and an internet connection.

Hopefully we will be up and running agian with the new SIDMon software next week.
