    What to do??

    Rite im sat at my desk with not alot to do, im a trainee IT Tech and the other tech has bin off ill from tuesday, so as you can guess i can't really do alot. Ive managed to keep myself entertained, but today im just sat thinking what can i do.

    What ive done today:

    Reset a password
    Changed a toner
    Looked at my pay slip (made me smile)
    Reset another password
    Walked around for abit like a lost child

    and now im drinking coffee, can anyone help me escape my boredem?

    Hey, you've got this tech job malarky sorted. What are you worried about!?

    The only other thing you need to do today is go find an attractive female member of staff to chat up.

    Go on the internet and learn something!
    Active Directory
    Group policy
    Installing new software via MSI
    the list is endless!

    Do some reading and further yourself so that one day you're not the trainee tech any more?

    Install VMWare on your PC and put Linux on it and attempt to make it do something constructive.

    Find an old box to tinker with / chuck linux on
    Install and config a new system for the staff to use (all room booking was done on paper here until I got bored one day)
    Go to miniclip.com and play some games
    Watch stuff on youtube

    Endless lists.

    (and what tech_guy said!!)

    Turn off your DC, then say your 'popping out for a bit'

    Trawl through your GP and see what you can enable to p*** some kids off, check internet logs, ban a few games... or see what they're playing and play it yourself
