    Today has been a nice surprise for me. I found out this morning that there's an inset day at the school I'm at so no kids !! Teachers leaving at 12pm.. fantastic !! It means I can get so much more done than I expected.

    Was hoping for a nice quiet start back, but the boss ballsed up the SIMS upgrade last term, and since she is not in this morning and this is the first I heard, I have to upgrade SIMS manually on about 100 workstations.

    Back to planning server virtualisation for the summer and decide whether to keep teaching and admin networks split or not
    Keep working on Moodle 2.0 in the background as I need a new custom theme to match our existing Moodle \ web portal on 1.9
    Reimage one or two broken PCs
    Test out DPM and decide if it's worth dropping Backup Exec for
    Upgrade GOLA client in last few rooms (their last upgrade trashed the installation so had to repair it manually via script)
    Try and figure out how to get user data folders into a proper one share system rather than the mess it is now... that one is giving me headaches

    Somewhere along the line also need to use up 3 weeks worth of leave between now and March as well!

    Day 1 so far:

    Office broken into over holiday, office trashed.
    Phone system faulty, most key extensions down (reception, student absence, staff cover ect)
    PAT testers been in over the holiday, 3 blown projectors, a few computer suites had the breakers tripped, Switch's left unplugged. lots of running around.

    How long till the next holiday?
