    put in the over time claim and see what they say - if they complain leave them with a system not working for a week of term time next time

    Single Time = Standard per hour rate
    Double Time = Double the standard rate.

    eg: if your standard time rate $5.00 for double time you would be getting paid $10.00 per hour.

    everyone back today and all went well... usual problems was people had for gotten their passwords and a member of staff had for gotten to grab her database of pupil profiles on to her memory stick.

    I've temporarily made the machines work with the new servers but need to do a proper install and create new images for each subject area. got a busy few weeks ahead.

    not bad for my first migration

    had a small dilemma last week while sending images. images were transferring at mb/m rather that 700-1200 mb/m tracked it down to the cache server. all the data traffic was going through the cache first and then on to the machines that were been imaged.

    I've got allot of testing left to be done and performance tweaking on the servers and switches, so I will be calling on help in the next few weeks

    my office is allot tidier now, finally got a 42U rack and the school now has its first lot of rack mount servers which means I can now get rid of them cluttering pedestal servers
