Unfortunately, even though I had so many great questions for the future about the laptop carts, we didn’t even get that far. In a total (and typical) fiasco, the wireless setup (linksys router/WAP connected to the network, all the laptops connecting to that router) that had worked fine on Friday, worked not at all on Monday morning.

Why? Nobody (not the Media Center director, the technician sent to help out, or the quartet of much-abused network techs) had any real answer at all. The only thing we’ve actually come up with is…finger-pointing, disclaimers of responsibility, and mystified shrugs.
