    Re: Half Term

    What a busy lot you are, although i got new windows going in, so clearing out the office that day, stores to audit, spagheti junction to tidy for the 3rd time in as many months, re-ris all my IT machines, you know, just the usual stuff. Projectors and Boards fitted this week by us, so none of that in the holidays.

    Re: Half Term

    Half term next week, Easy week for a change. Upgrade Pcontrol, run network audit, get DELL to replace a defunct DLT1 tape drive in our main file server. Re-image 100 identical workstations with Ghost, that's about it, yawn......Oops forgot... Jimmy the electrician is coming in to install a new power circuit for the servers!

    I wonder how many teachers have organised revision classes without letting me know, assuming that the network and all the servers will be alive & kicking? Am I the only one who suffers from that I wonder?

    Let me know how you get on with SR5. Doing it in a half term seems brave to me.

    I'm waiting for a bit until all the bugs have been ironed out of it. (Probably the first half term after next September) The team I was in updated 6 schools in 2004.

    4 were passable and had minor problems.

    One had a few really annoying issues ended up running the update 3 times before it worked including some components manually. Probably seemed more annoying than it actually was as I was forced to do it on a Saturday (so no RM support) due to a Sasser outbreak and a DFES visit on Tuesday. Finished the rebuilds Monday afternoon as Saturday was spent fixing SR4.

    As for the last one, none of the machines would rebuild afterwards. Not sure what exactly what the fix was as my collegue dealt with the RM visit to sort it out.

    Also had another friend have SR4 fail on him another RM visit followed.

    (Got a feeling this was slightly of his own making by updating a member server first?)

    Re: Half Term

    I am in work all week and wishing i took it off. It is soooo boring in here at the moment its annoying. I am tempted to just take tomorrow off and divert all the calls. By the way its mainly boring because i am on my own. Plus i am done all my job list Don't fancy doing all the little crap jobs.
