Ooo I just counted my name... I've got 13 letters :'( I'm dooooomed!
Most people call me Rich... so I might get away with it... Or I might just include my middlename from now on!
It's quite funny how these superstitions come about (thats just reminded me! I'm meant to be buying my mum and dad some stevie wonder tickets today!)
Spoke too soon about having troubles, our admin machines in the office just had a right old paddy, couldn't open any office documents from but could open word and excel program from the start menu or desktop shortcuts then do a file open(which is a PITA). Luckily it managed to fix it just doing a "repair office" install but it did worry me for a moment
Our firealarm decided to trigger just at lunch. Was great considering they couldnt get it to switch off again! I've never seen so many staff looking cold and unhappy!!
Apart from that, nothing else went wrong, in fact I actually got some work done today
We were testing the UPS' and the one that powers the powerchute server went dead straight away so had to abandon testing.
I suppose that's the point of testing...to see if anything fails so it's a good thing really.
the fibre module on one of our hp switches decided to die on friday, taking out a 3rd of the network, where the student services office and everything is luckily got it back running with a couple of media convetors, and a nice 190 quid to replace the module
Well it was a great day today! The suite of machines I'd left pulling software off the server died (breaker went) and we had a power outage some other places too.
When I went into said suite I picked up the air con remote...pointed it at the unit...pushed a button and the remote died and hasn't worked since...one of the site management team has it.
Our new HP Officejet will only print paper jams. But aside form that it was a good day.
And to today is the day we're due to shutdown everything as there will be electrical works over the weekend.
Here too, im shutting everything down in my server room to sort out the UPS's............this could be interesting!
You think that's bad, I'm doing my SIMS migration to SQL 2008 today!
*Duck's and Cover's*
Never mind severs..... i've left my keys at home and now I have to walk to the main entrances on each building as I cant open the side doors..... and more imprtanyly....... I cant get to my kettle or milk ....... aaarrrgggghhhhh
Well I woke up and switched off my alarm initially thinking it was Saturday!!!
But here at work I've done a MIS upgrade which has gone really smoothly, and people actually signed off the system well in advance (Makes a change!)
