What I did today..
Just finished wiring the patch panel with Cat6 in his new office.. just need to get a few more Data Ports for the existing trunking and wire that up.. Then get the caretaker to fit the new benching, install my whiteboard and give the whole thing a lick of paint...
Downside is that the office is located between 2 classrooms - that I need to walk through to get in and out.. Oh and one of the classrooms is the D&T Workshop -

I stripped down and repaired the remote controller for the hall projector screen after it had been trodden on once too often.

I started to learn inkscape so i can do vector graphics as well as bitmaps, and swore lots at the HP autoloader for not talking to backupexec.

Hmmm what did I do?
1. Started an exam for WJEC Applied AICT5 this morning. Made sure everyone could log in correctly and all their files were in the right place.
2. Started work on rebuilding our Dell PowerEdge 2950 server. Installed a new hard drive into a new virtual array with help from FN-GM on here and the advice he gave. Updated the PERC software and downloaded the PERC Bios update to find out the floppy drive was broke in the server.
3. Chased the techie for the USB drive - he's lost it.
4. Been monitored teaching by my line manager. A good esafety lesson for Year 10 pupils. Happy with that.
5. Dismantled my old desk - metal thing with leccy points. Moved a new desk into my room.
6. Finished the 2950 by setting up WDS and migrating the old images over. Installed WAIK and MDT2010.
7. Came home to have stirfry
8. Sitting here looking at Year 12 coursework whilst the missus watches TV downstairs.

Wrote a backup script for the Assistant Principal to back his laptop hard drive up to our NAS (as he wants to keep things on his hard drive!), Moodle server admin. Spent the afternoon doing a mixture of FMS related things (because our Bursar has passed away and was helping the finance assistant with something) and started working on a script to email me when someone leaves their computer on all night!
Oh and general helpdesk!
