    Nothing like a call on the Friday before you're due to start saying 'the network's down, help!' to get you flying out of the starting blocks! I think I learned more about the network in 9 or so hours yesterday than I would in a week normally! Anyway, I've been a lurker here for a while, so nice to finally say 'hi!'.
    Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of education IT! Congratulations on surviving the initiation test. You should be a very successful edugeek!

    Haha, thanks! I think my success will be measured by how I manage to drag my newly-acquired CC3 network into the modern day!

    I know that one, the rushed multihour session both learning the network and tracking down the fault as you learn. Stress++ but you learn in a hurry, you also usually encounter the thought WTF more often than is healthy.

    Anyhow, welcome to the participation side.

    The solution to that is surely FDisk followed by a format command

    Morning all,

    Sunny here, currently an IT Tech in a High School in Walsall (WM).

    Currently a busy body, working on house extensions (gotta get it cat5'd all the way round! O.O), car bodywork, setting up my beast gaming machine, buying a gaming laptop, and planning a holiday! Lurking on here now and again for sneak peak information

    Hope we can have a right laugh!

    Sunny

    My names Jeff and I'm a new network administrator of a small company, 50 computers. I have no formal computer training, all self taught. There's not too much about any windows versions that don't know about. thought this server software would be in the same boat, boy was i wrong. it's a steep learning curve but i'm making it along just fine. I try to not go into AD too often, I check my backups almost daily. Most of our problems are with users not knowing what they're doing. clicking things they shouldn't be clicking. I have joined several forums for some additional help when i start to feel i'm over my head. Google is my best friend but it's good to have others seeing how Google is kinda stuck on himself.
