    One day of downtime scheduled while we do various things to the network interfaces of our virtual hosts - in reality as it'll be a staged migration we shouldn't have any downtime of services (just a host for a few minutes).

    Mashing out the latest version of App-V will be the big project which comes along with a reimage of all PCs - SCCM is going to be helping big time there and hopefully we won't need to touch 90% of PCs.

    After that its our 'making better use of data' project - going to be using Visual Studio Light switch and SSIS to automate various tasks which are currently done manually.

    There's no compulsion for us to ensure that the office is manned in the six weeks, thus we're much harder to get hold of and can continue our day in blissful ignorance of the ignorant

    EDIT: Enter myself for the exam!

    Replace two computer suites
    Reimage the rest of the computers
    Replace the PCs in almost every classroom
    Set up VLANs
    Replace Virtual server with new one
    Replace file server with new one
    Make main fibre backbone 10GB
    Setup new exchange 2013 server

    Not quite to the end of week two and I've started very little (basically none) of that as teachers keep coming in to have their new tablets configured as they appear unwilling to read the instructions either we sent them or just the ones one the device's screen. Had one in yesterday who had made up the email address she was using for her appleid as she didn't realise that she needed to use a real one.
