Tales from the first day back
First day back and-
Servers are down due to power faliure - APC couldn't keep 2 servers alive to get over the 5min power cut.
Internet connection not quite working correctly (keeps dropping out).
Found 2 mince pies in office (still tasted ok).
E-mail down for first half hour (County got it working again).
So any tales from anyone else?

So far so good here,
just had to boot up a virtual server and had one problem with a PC in one of the rooms going to be used for presentation.
and... it's a P.D. Day!!
apart from someone breaking down infront of me in his car.
all is good!
We're ghosting the I.T. Rooms & several have failed. Yay!

I'm suffering from a stinking cold which wasn't actually that bad until I got in. The obvious conclusion is that work makes me ill.

We had a nice leak and it was right above my pc so it has been drying all morning

First question I was asked "Have you locked youtube?" Seems a Y& science module is on Forensic Science and the course work has links to a youtube video. When I tried the link on a filtered computer I got an LEA filter message. When I tried it on my unfiltered computer I got a youtube message saying the vido had been removed because of copyright violations!

Server room was red hot this morning as aircon was pumping hot air in instead of cool air, result was servers shut down because they were too hot, what a great start to 2010

Got a backup log message saying 'no scratch media' followed by a backup completion message.
And 2 boxes of chocolates on my desk
So not too bad really!

Surprisingly, pretty much all is quiet on the western front! Touch wood, obviously!
Only thing I do have is an single client installation of e-aqa science that seems to have gone belly up... re-install hasn't fixed it, so I'm about to start the research. Someone put the kettle on, and locate the hidden chocolate biscuits

Many forgotten passwords, one forgotten username, 2 dead machines & a turned off photocopier no one could remember how to turn on.
Not bad I guess.
