    First day back in the office...

    One drive failure, one VMware server that was on a PSOD and appears to have corrupt vmware install (probably the usb pen it's on gone corrupt) luckily HA did its job though.

    Only came in to setup the PCs in two offices, looks like i'll be here a little longer than expected. Anyone else having an interesting first day back?

    Our CC can not decide which data center we are using, so we keep losing all Internet for a few mins

    Plugged all computers in I could get to and allowed the Sims update to propagate.. which it seems to have quite nicely.

    Just as well... you'll need those for stress management when you find out what Sims really did

    My Darth Vader and Binary clocks didn't go off this morning - so I wake up at 8:38, launch myself into the car while getting dressed, and make the trip into Manchester for work in 25 mins instead of 40 mins - looks like Darth only works for 2 minutes before turning itself off, and the binary clock *may* have been set wrong.

    Have you seen the edugeek project:
    Self Service Password Reset

    Our staff can reset student passwords and students / staff if they wanted could even reset their own.

    Not going back in till Monday, will have to test one of our fibre links out as a tree fell on it over Xmas. Luckily there was enough excess in the loft space. Its working fine according to the switch. Fortunately as of last summer its no longer our only link to that side of the site.
