I shut off the lab every night, both to save energy; save wear on the
components; and, mosts important, to get buy in from the school for
maintaining the lab.  If they want a working lab, they can at least send
down a teacher or child every morning to turn the lab on.  AND THEY DO !
Every morning, an 11, 12, or 13 year-old child comes down to the lab, turns
on the switches, then the server, and then all of the thin clients.  And
that has been going on now for this whole year.  That looks like some real
progress to me !

Right, and the weird thing is that the blinking was working this whole time,
even when the network was down.  Now it is magically back up.
