    I'm not going in at all over christmas. But will probably do the odd bit of work remotely before the launch of our sharepoint solution to all parents and students in January 09.

    Planning to do a major re-RIS'ing of client workstations so I'll be spending a bit of time getting a new RIS image ready for each of the schools I have.

    Beyond that though it's tax return time so I'll be dealing with all that paperwork...

    Just wondering if there is there a reason why you just reboot a server?

    It's often useful if over the last x months since last reboot you've made changes which say "please restart your machine" and you don't, or you've made config file changes which don't appear to take effect until reboot.

    I've been linux boxes be rebooted after a years uptime to find they no longer boot because someone messed up a closing comment in /etc/rc.conf. - I'd sooner it broke during maintenance than during a random power cut.

    If nothing else, updates often require reboots that are suppressed by GPO so it's just nice

    I finish on the 19th and then working from home the 22nd and 23rd. Re-doing the school website and want some quiet time to do that. Plus I can put some films on and catch up.

    My list is pretty short at the moment...

    1. Upgrade Sims
    2. Provide tech support to the finance department while they run off the fee bills
    3. General server/network maintenance
    4. Lots of research
    5. possibly clean a few projector filters
