Tasks put off due to lack of time
Is there any jobs / tasks which you have all put off due to lack of time, but always planned to catch up on at some point?
I'm just going through old summer / easter job lists which I make for myself, and the amount of things such as equipment cleaning / checking which has not been completed since is crazy... purely due to time constraints!

Recabling our cabs too. But I have now put it down as our summer job for this year - so am getting specifically funded to do it too, ie. buying new cables to replace the random dodgy ones that exist everywhere and removing the 5m cables that go 4 inches between a patch panel and a switch.

Projector cleaning is the main one here. It's difficult to get in an clean them when they are in constant use during my normal hours. Infact, cleaning of any equipment in the classrooms in general is a pain.

sorting out install CD's and copying them to a network share is always something i earmark for a spare couple of hours, but always manage to find something better to do

Updating network documentation so that someone can pick up the pieces if I fall under a bus.....

What network documentation :S :\???
Still have that on my to-do list.
I was lucky that the last Network manager stayed on here for a year on a "consultancy" role a day a week .

The network documentation I inherited when I took the job is all of two pages of A4......... it is barely more than a map of the school showing cabinets and the location (allegedly) of all of the network points.
