    Came in so early today I don't even think the site manager knows I am here. Been the one turning the lights on.

    I came in yesterday finding out a power cut had happened over the hols, all the servers and everything were off after huge uptimes - all the raid arrays had to be repaired etc. took a while to get everything to play ball.
    Monday will be fun for me, I reimaged every PC after pre warning everyone that I was going to, wiped the lot!

    Came in to do a SIMs update yesterday and an INTouch update, as a result Intouch has broke.... couldn't get it fixed due to site wide power shutdown.

    Today while getting all staff PCs on ready for the SIMs update I have found 3 PCs needing rebuilding, 2 no power and a water leak. And I am only 1/5 done...

    I'm installing new switches and fibre modules - no teaching staff, just cleaners and site manager so very quiet. Ahh, the peace!
    Teachers back on Monday, kids back on Tuesday.

    Not back until Monday but popped in yesterday to press the on button on the web server that turned of with a power cut.

    Nothing too serious that I know of at the minute.

    Not in till Monday, but had a DC go pear shaped (just a restart sorted it, thank goodness for multiple DCs though!) Then it's install a brand new Smoothie, and build some profiles for it (while, you know, learning how to use it from scratch). Then it all begins...

    Over these last 2 days I have done the following:
    -Broken the SSO link between myschool and Fronter so users can log directly into fronter
    -requested certificate to install on new moodle server
    -updated the school timetable and pushed it into sims
    -removed the 7 old HP MFPs ready to be collected now we have a nice KCS/Ricoh managed contract with better MFDs and newer safecom
    -run SIMS update in SOLUS 2. Updated intouch and discover
    -made sure the guys got all the reconditioned lenovos put in trolleys
    -looked into what laptop models are doing well this year ready for the yearly 170 laptops purchase for the new year 9
    -did some last minute large format printing for display boards (best investment ever we did was the 3k hp large format printer for that)

    Now resting ready for Monday :-)

    So far today, one tablet not charging due to a loose USB connection...and one laptop playing video at half speed due to the user pressing the wrong key...and that's it...

    Tomorrow will be a b*tch I bet

    We have a wireless line of site link between our campuses and come back to find one of them at a very funny angle which was causing a lot of problems, and I'm guessing from the weathervane, it was windy.....
