    Um... windy is an understatement, I woke up, dragged myself out of bed to get her to work, as her car is bust, now sitting here answering the stupid questions like I forgot my email password...

    Oh well at least its TD here too.

    I was half tempted to ask my better half if I could use her car for the day but she is back in work (Training Day) ... I love my little car but they are not that good in strong winds ... and so I drive at a sensible speed only to be flashed, honked, beeped, and cut up by others.

    Crazy day so far. Had about 15 help desk tickets, plus about 20 people randomly needing help, 4 new members of staff, 3 needing laptops, a UPS which is being dumb and far too many people having forgotten their passwords.

    Not to mention a user who reported something on the last day, in the afternoon, and then contacted us twice more this morning saying it still wasn't fixed!

    Good job there's 2 of us to deal with it all!!

    Got in to a great email today from an irate teacher who is "absolutely sick of it not working" because "the password you gave me is wrong" with an email from myself forwarded on. Well, the email is 2 years old and said teacher needs their password resetting every month because they have the memory of a gold fish, including a reset just before the christmas break.

    My first PICNIC of the year

    Weather = YUK! My first day of not working and I get called in because both servers are down (I am being paid!) Trees on site are dropping fairly large bits.

    The caretaker and I did our rounds working out what had gone down in terms of IT, heating, etc. It seems we had a power cut at 4.15am on Christmas Morning lasting around 45 minutes. At 5.20am on Boxing Day morning the Burglar Alarm had triggered a call out to the servicing company, but they could find nothing wrong. The ghosts must have been having a knees-up!

    The fuse for the main comms cupboard had tripped and both UPS had powered off. Everything is now rebooted and talking to everything else. So I've emailed my successor who starts tomorrow, submitted my bill and come home
