killing three birds with one stone
I'm a firm believer in the idea of working smart, not hard. It suits my laid-back attitude, too.
Today, by replacing a switch, I've accomplished two tasks by design, and a third completely by coincidence. Kind of like a multiplier bonus.
We have an old noisy switch near a music room. Because said switch generates a lot of noise, it gets switched off frequently due to the plug being within reach (I will be taking steps to remedy this in future). It's also only a 10-baseT switch, meaning it becomes a little bit of a bottle-neck.
So now, not only is that building's network faster, but it won't get turned off in future due to noise! As for the third item on the menu: Upon examining the top of the comms cabinet, I found the key for another room that went missing after being lent to some contractors.
So, what smart things have you done?
