    Well yesterday was a hangover day after Sunday night.
    Today I'm mostly wondering what it is I'm supposed to be doing and for the life of me I just can't remember.
    Looks like for the rest of the week I'll still be trying to remember what I'm supposed to be doing. This will also be mixed with copious amounts of reading my books, watching DVDs etc...

    building scripts to auto compress AVI,Mpeg and (flip cam) NOD files, Compress wav's to MP3 and and resize all JPG over 2mb down by 50% with 15% compression
    Yes that's right freeing up server space.

    Had wanted to take this week off but have to stick around and look after contractors, we've got a gig laser link going in this week - my biggest project so far is finally happening and I can get rid of the VPN link that tends to go down on any day with a Y in it....

    Around that I'm hoping to tidy the office, sort out our switches and run a network link into our catering office. Other than that I'm hoping for an easy week.

    On top of that our site manager has said I'm getting a new circuit put in... the servers and everything else in my office is currently running off a spur which is hanging off a circuit that does most of this floor

    Shut down the server first thing this morning as we have electrical contractors in for the week doing major work

    Walk round school unplugging everything for same reason as above

    Cleaning the projectors (Yuk! Yuk! YUK!)

    Back in on Friday to switch everything back on again whilst praying to the deity of the moment that it all comes back up as it should.

    Climbing over the gate to get into work because the Site Manager never thought to ask me if I'd be in before chaining the gates shut I have keys, and an alarm code, but no key to the padlock on the gate. and now wet patches on my trousers - from the water on the gates. Grrrrrr.

    Edit: just noticed that's my 500th post Yay

    Just created a second configuration for ISA to proxy CLEO's unfiltered connection so we can now run adult ed courses on Youtube, Facebook etc. after hours eventually I hope to use it full time with something like Securus monitoring, rather than blanket filtering.

    Doing an audit of every bit of IT equipment in the school so we can show the Governors how backward we are and hopefully get some funding!
