    How do you spend your weekend?

    Just wondering how people spend there weekend?

    Usually I would be doing anything but IT for at least one day

    Today I have decided I am actually going to update my Exchange server (hosted dedicated server hosting a few domains for my friends and family), after updating the one at school a few months back I have come to the conclusion that my own server running Exchange 2010 SP1 needs to be updated to SP3 Roll up 5.

    I am not sure if you can just do SP2, SP3 roll ups, but I am doing each roll up itself before the SP and then again all the roll ups etc... So downloading was nice and fast just the installing is taking all day

    The unfortunate thing is I just saw the sun come out, I eventually decided I would go out into the garden and the sun went away again so am back inside staring at the loading bar again.

    However I am finding some cool stuff on edugeek to do at work that I may look at next week

    So what have you guys/girls been up to/got planned for the rest of this weekend?

    Football, football, football! Playing, watching, or gaming on FIFA.

    I'm loving today so far, ECL Final later and then it's the World Cup. Woop woop!

    Today I have been to the Tate Modern to see the Matisse cut outs.... really excellent exhibition

    And then I watched Anthony and Cleopatra at The Globe. Fortunately we were seated as we had a thunderstorm for part of the performance!

    Weekends vary for us. Sometimes it will be going to watch football (Luton Town or Arsenal), gardening, walking, up to London doing some culture. The kids are grown up now so Mr gee40 and I can be less prescriptive

    mrwITch and number two son went for a taster rib ride on Southampton Water bought for them as a Christmas present by my daughter. I just did the usual Saturday stuff - library, shopping, walking the dog, that sort of thing.
    Tomorrow, if the weather is good we are going to a local Dorset village, Witchampton, which, for a small cost, opens up a number of beautiful gardens for people to wander around. There are refreshments, too! There is also a "wheels" festival in Bournemouth.

    Yesterday I was sorting out final conf admin and watching the rain stream down the windows.
    Today I'm still doing admin with a trip to Staples to look forwards to shortly.
    Hopefully the nice weather tomorrow will get us out of doors

    We have nice weather today I am hoping the lawn will dry out enough to mow it after lunch. It's a chores day today!

    Taken a large(ish) play house down, ready to build a shed on Tuesday. If it arrives...

    In the mean time; I need an outside tap, stuff into and out of the loft, bike needs a wash, as do the cars. I could put a second coat of paint on the bathroom; or I could open a beer. I doubt the last will happen until much later.

    a local Dorset village, Witchampton
    Named after you?

    Went to Aldi, bought a load of stuff but forgot to get the one item I went for! I'm hoping for dry grass but it isn't looking promising.
