"Stop processing items in this extension if an error occurs"... and "remove this item when it no longer applies" (translated, it might say something different).

I have literally no idea what this is going on about but I am shocked by the sexual refernces in this professional forum... tut tut!

And I am stopping it.
@Bradlys Stop whining. Do you want server help or not? Are you going to listen to @Ephelyon ?
@Ephelyon Be nice. Play nice. Don't scare the little techie

Of Course I want help :P This thread seemed to blow up with lots of provocative posts is all xD

Actually going down there is only in play because I'm dropping an actual old server off to learn on. Otherwise I'd deliver the lot via Skype I expect. This is along the lines of an idea I floated with Chris at EICE about introducing a form of mentoring/buddy system to support new/lone techs. There's a sense, @Bradlys, in which I'm "using" you a little bit here as I'd like examples of case studies to show that it could work. There, that's now pretty much my full hand on the table.
@Bradlys has no form of on-site server setup at his place and the idea would be to develop a skillset with implementing that, to benefit his employer in the short-term and to make him more employable in the long-term. Although there are (costly) training options available for this, we all know they're often inaccessible to those places with smaller budgets and/or a limited recognition of why they might be necessary. I think that collaborating to support/train each other is something we already do via EduGeek and formalising that a little more into peer mentoring/buddying could be interesting. It would also be important for mentors to have co-supervision with each other, as some potential mentees could be in quite stressful situations.
Mentioned it to @witch a couple of weeks ago, partially for that purpose

You are doing a good thing. and good luck to you. We are just teasing
I have benefited from help from other techs - both in person and virtual. I would love some training on anything tech as I have never had any of any sort.
Anyone want to combine a few days in lovely Dorset with a bit of training or mentoring?

I was quite fortunate during my apprenticeship I had a good and intelligent Network Manager above me that taught me the role and various other things, it does help vastly I think and I would always take up an offer if someone ever wanted to show me what they do and how their network runs, I can then take away that information and hopefully implement better things into mine. But Dorset seems a bit too far from me haha otherwise I'd be honoured to sit under your wing for a few days @witch!

I want someone to teach ME not me teach them! This is my third career that I fell into after being an electronics tech and a computer/electronics headhunter and apart from a lot of help from mrwITch and from a couple of others I have never learned anything "officially"

@Ephelyon is really helpful
If I die, at least I learnt about servers
