Dear proud Canadians and other Olympic supporters,

We are experiencing a drastic slowdown in our internet due to individual and small group streaming of Olympic events.  To maintain reasonable access to our network and the internet, please watch a specific event together from one projected computer or teachers can download events and play them back later without any additional impact on the networks. If teachers don’t know how to download video, the Help Desk can assist them.  Students, please don’t sit and individually stream events as we are close to crashing our internet access entirely (and then no one can watch).

WHERE’S NUTTY THIS WEEK – “  I am so hungry I could burst.   I have some change, and I’m dying from thirst.  Sometimes this place is hard to see, because it is high up like a tree..   Find me for a prize
