    Bored Bored Bored

    It's so quiet around here at the moment. Both my techies are off doing the usual printer maintainence, password resets and all the other stuff I can't be bothered to. Nothing much is planned due to budgets all being closed shortly. Is it unhealthy to spend 43 hours a day playing Solitare?

    Alternitively my white car is now brown. Could give that a wash, but need to come up with a work related reason for doing so - anyone?

    Ordinarily so would I. I just tend to find I'm either sat around doing not a lot all day or completely run off my feet. Oh for a happy medium solution

    Re: Bored Bored Bored

    If I'm sat down I usually look like I'm bored, but it usually means i'm doing 300 different things at once on one of the three machines on/around my desk (Wintel box, G5, Powerbook G4 12"). There seems to be a common misconception that if you're sat down you're not doing anything.

    The G4 is my sanity device, being my main link to the outside world and the object that goes most everywhere with me...

    I will miss it when I move on and leave it behind...

    Having said that given the past 3 years of existence it has had, they may just let me keep it...


    Yeah, right.

    I know that one, people seem to think that i'm not doing anything atm, when in fact I am using TS to control another machine which i'm creating a full sysprep on (with all our software etc) and making sure it fully works

    That's jsut the way of it though isn't it. How many times have you spent a day or more working on something that makes very little or no difference to the end user. From an administration point of view it might be brilliant but as far as your users are concerned you've been doing nothing. I hate that one. Oh well.

    Re: Bored Bored Bored

    Atm, I have Edugeek up on the powerbook, and my IM's, and am talking with a former tech from the college about some work he did here and picking his brains. I'm also sat in a macintosh support channel just monitoring the ebb and flow of general conversation without partaking.On the G5 I'm running iTunes and Server Monitor. On the PC I'm running 3 TS instances into different servers, Outlook, a 12 month game plan that I've been writing, and also researching some Ranger/Profile problems we've been having.

    And then someone just sticks their head round the door and asks 'are you busy?'
