Technology...can't live with it, can't shoot it

Day 2, (Librarianless)
2 Staff on and busy with loads of students working solidly, must be an assignment due.
Setting up the Wireless laptop for an induction at 1.10
Should have been easy enough, was shown last Thursday how to do it, but...

Setting up in Seminar room 1.....not near desk, keep running back to check desk....
Guessing my way through instructions I only half remember, seemed to be easier on Thursday (it seems a lot of this is intuitive)...
