Half Term plans
Is it Half Term everywhere? I'm assuming so. Anyway, what are your plans? In school? Week off?
For me, a relatively easy Half Term. I'm not entirely sure why I'm in. I'm calling this week "self-organisation". I need to do a little bit of admin and just get myself ready for the long half term ahead. Hoping to start next week fresh and organised. :)
There's a first time for everything. ;)
We are replacing all our copiers and the back end print management systems (equitrack and pcounter). Already had a lorry tag an overhead fibre cable and pull it off the supports. Then there's the usual upgrades, updates and shuffling around.
Business as normal up here - no half term.... :(
Half term here....
And I've got a decant spreadsheet to fill in!!
What and where is all the old equipment in the old school - and what and where is it going in the new school in october.... omg its taking aaaaaaaaaaaages lol :D
We have half term here but we [the Network Team] are in all week.
Making good on damage and preparing for Summer work [lots to do]
Today is all about getting our new whizzy 80Mb Internet up and running :)
Then got a couple of days off to help the Mother-in-Law move (she's moving a couple of doors down from us :scared:)
Then back in on Friday to do some general maintenance tasks.
Half term here for the main school, but the preschool is open and I'm in work.
Install SQL2012 on 65 Primary School servers....:bored:
This sums up this mornings activities.
Rest of the week consists of Protex training, more routine maintenance at my other school and completing the migration away from LA Broadband.
Playing around with MythTV got some guys in from Advanced Connections doing some loom upgrades and projector installations in our science labs whilst I plod round and install some Apple TVs in various rooms.
Half term here...not much on really. A few projector bulbs to change, 20 new PC's coming in so they all need reimaging, and then 10 of them have already been allocated for use around the school. So they'll go out and the old PC's then need reimaging and re-distributing. Then a few software installations as well. Other than that we'll work through our general jobs list and try and clear as much as we can. It is only a three day week though with the Edugeek Meet on Thursday :-)
Half Term here....
3 x New Projectors with Smart Boards to be installed.
52 x New PCs to be installed (26 done, but need to put the junk away somewhere)
Possibly transfer user files to new server (just got to do a few more tests first).
For our whole 2 days onsite we will be testing the volume of a new class change system for future installation (tested external version of the system in the Easter break but wasn't loud enough to hear in some room)
Replace a UPS battery
Clear out the server room ready for major building work to start in July
Resolve a few support calls we have open that is easier to do when no-one is around.
So all in all a very quiet half term, so it looks like we will be pottering around come day 2.
Trying to do 5 lots of fibre installs and then finding out there are classes on in the rooms where the fibres need to be terminated ........:mad:
Why on earth didn't I clock on that this was during Half Term?! All this time and I could have gone. Too late now. Can't go. :(
