well this evening i went in to college to do some cisco and sql stuff only to have synetrix drop out 10 minits in.
Business teacher said to me "you know those hessian boards at the back of the row of computers in the computer room, can you move them"
I'm thinking on my a*se here sipping a cup of coffee, these boards are heavy
I reply: Well they are there for health and safety purposes so the kids don't trip on the wires or remove network leads and so on..
Teacher: "We are having a parents evening and we need some display boards moved 3 flights of stairs and it's not my job to move them"
Now I'm getting mad
Me: Well it's not my job either, I'm here to look after the network and computers, have you asked the caretakers ?
Later I see my techie moving the boards, I gave him a verbal about what a soft sh*te he was.
Started the day working at home, just finishing a document I started yesterday for one half of our patch, headed into the office and ended up going to the other side to collect 6 servers and also removed a blade to be brought to this side.
Unloaded servers, headed down to the data centre to install the removed blade and get talked through how to setup the iDrac on it, headed to a school where we use their conference suite and reconfigured a laptop that one of the trainers had so they could connect to our network, been on going for months that. Stopped by another site on the way back to the office to get dinner from the cafe.
Then proceeded for the next 3.5 hours trying to get a server installing Windows sever so that I can eventually ghost on and load to the other 5 or 6 we have here read to be distribution points for SCCM 2007.
Left office came home had tea and chilled, dialled back into work onto said server and did the Windows update etc as the internet is quicker at night, spent some 5 hours this evening back and forth on that, nipped into town to see a mate that I had not seen for a week or so and give her some bits, came back home and chilled again and just finished off the server, browsing web found some interesting bits so been reading them and now I am on here getting sorted for bed.
Also did do quite a bit of filing at home and shredding.
Been a good day, could get into the swing of this new role of assisting the implementing of SCCM 2007, more work from home and its quieter here
I found a Kyocera fs1020D printer under a pile of junk that was getting recycled. it's now on my desk, working perfectly. Previous Tech must have put it there at least 4 years ago! The 1996 HP Laserjet 6p that was on my desk can now can now be used elsewhere as I've got the 1020D - the D stands for DUPLEX
treated my self to a beer after work......ended up not leaving the pub..... ouch my head hurts!
Threw out the very first laptop we every bought in the school. Along with many others!
I have spent the day fixing one of our exchange databases not fun at all!
Renamed the cashless card for the UoL (soon to be called "lecard", pending approval from the director)...
Although we have to figure out how to recall 10,000 of the current ones without any contact information other than a telephone number... Mass SMS I think...

Watched my android application tick over the 900 download mark on the android market.
Got kicked out of a shop for trying on the rope.
