    Re: Working over the summer?

    I'm in for 3 consecutive weeks, got the 1st week and last 2 weeks off.

    I've got a shedload of work to do, but by the same token I've got holiday time that I'm entitled to, so I'm gunna be working flat out for 3 weeks, saying that, I'd rather 3 weeks of hard work than 6 weeks of not much work!

    Re: Working over the summer?

    My boss and I are in for the full 6 weeks between us, each having a week off (though not the same week).

    As usual we have approx. 10 weeks work each, but you can get so much more done without users being present..

    It's not as bad as the Feb. half term holiday where we were due to have 70 thin clients delivered on the Wednesday to have installed and working for the following Monday.. TNT Decided it was a school holiday so didn't even attempt delivery. They arrived on the Friday at 11am and 60 were in and working for Monday morning..

    We've just heard from the whiteboard installers that they are now unable to put in our whiteboards over the summer (had promised it previously) so it's looking like we have 9 IWBs to install too.

    Add those to potentially re-IP Addressing the whole network unless Netlinc can sort a change request for the router's IP before September and completely redoing the IT Asset register and we are 'busy'.

    I would hate to be in a slow job :P

    I wouldnt worry about that. if there is physically too much work to do in the summer, what can you do?
    Maybe it could persuade SMT to hire some more staff?

    That the approach I take - I work VERY hard, but if they suddenly push a ridiculous amount of work on me on top of what I already had planned, they cant just expect it to magically be done

    Re: Working over the summer?

    I'm in for 4 out of the six weeks.

    Lots of new dell kit to install and ghost. Then getting a Joomla site ready for a live launch for the new term. I've also got to upgrade our ICT database software and tinker with our backups and sort out some niggles with sharepoint and citrix.

    Me and the other IT Technician have decided to dedicate a few days to host a van damme dvd party, should be mint.

    Projector + DVD player + fast internet = fun
