    watching the site manager's cat follow him around the site is pretty cool. either that, or washing laptop screens whilst watching them install SP3 |-)

    Chasing sheep out of our schools grounds with the site manager - well it is Wales after all!

    or finding out yesterday that we have to have a survey done on our house so a PRC certificate can be issued and we can finally sell it. At a meer cost of £3,500

    The deployment of Windows 7 across all of our network actually working :-) and hopefully in another couple of weeks having a life away from this network upgrade.

    Hmm.

    So far..?

    Good: Workstation refresh works well.
    Bad: Some wazzock rebooted one of our AD servers (or possibly both) during the final stage of Zen, either NM or our "overseer" in our parent academy, leading to a 50/50 split of domain join and workgroup membership. Tedious.

    Good: My junior just got the shock of his life (literally) when he shorted out a power lead. First shock ever, life lesson.
    Bad: He leaves us tomorrow. Sigh.


    Good: DWP just paid me the backdated DLA they stopped and didn't mention, plus the child tax credits came in at last (8 months old now!). Therefore, bills are sorted, car can have the new exhaust I've been meaning to get, and car #2 can have a secondhand set of discs/drums from a scrapyard at last and get some brakes!

    Even better: 2 weeks off starting tomorrow, lots of quality time wearing my daughter in the carrier/crawl-chasing across the floor/teaching her baby-sign, forgetting all about being adult and IT, and just having fun. Also got a sling-meet to attend with them, and a breastfeeding group picnic at a park by my mum, so lots of socialising.

    Even better again: Mother wants to take me, missus and tiddler to Shell Island/Barmouth as a "treat" tomorrow for a long weekend. Tiddlers first holiday!

    There are 4 people in this building. It's BLISS.

    Highlight so far: getting all my deployments finished by week 1!!
    Lowlight: being shouted at by a teacher because she had come in (un-announced!) to do an "urgent report" only to find the network wasn't working and she hadn't been informed!!

    I can't say I've done anything exciting at work yet, it's still to come. I've been enjoying the time off and only nipping in for the odd hour here and there. Got some new machines to setup and that is about it.

    Mine MIGHT be...

    Finishing the refit of the Language lab that I left for the physics dept this time last year. I've gone back to help as I remember how it was installed 1st time, and I designed the changes. I also like the chance to play with myriad wires!

    We are just a few bits short, and if they arrive tomorrow it will be finished, bar the software install which is due in the middle of next month. We are well on track!
