Sod's law strikes again

I ought to have realised that the class that ended up slightly oversubscribed (11 students and 11 computers) would be made up of highly motivated, regular attenders who turn up without fail to every session. When you secretly want one to drop out, they don't, whereas if you have a small class that's only just big enough to go ahead, people will stop coming on the slightest pretext and the class dwindles to nothing and you end up being given heaven knows what to make up your hours. Sigh…

This morning the Class That Will Only Just Fit in the computer room turned stressful once more when one of the computers went dead unexpectedly in mid task. Fortunately, I had my laptop with me, so the student could use that while I phoned the technician and asked him to come to my rescue. (I was teaching in one of the out centres, not in the main college.) Technician diagnosed a dodgy cable, which he then replaced and all was well again. Relief!
