    Whooops! That'll be the server's off then...

    So it's the last friday of term, i have a little free time got all my big jobs done, so i thought i'd try installing freenas on one of the old machines dumped under my desk.

    Plugged the power cord into it, *BANG*! Big flash and now no power to the admin and curriculum servers, photocopier or the office next door.

    oops!

    Now gotta wait for the servers to chkdsk

    Today I came into work!

    That's always a bad sign that something nasty is going to happen!

    We got out servers put on a different circuit to our office after a faulty power socket tripped everything off.

    Definitely worth having a dedicated feed for your servers - we have 2 dedicated feeds for ours.

    ....which is exactly why I'm not renewing my first aid certificate next month. I'm fed up of sitting in the office and hearing from the medical room, when the first aider is out "... well I can't put a plaster on it because I don't have a first aid certificate... Geehubb does....." After all they don't pay me any extra because I've got a first aid cert!
