    Red face What stupid thing have you done today?

    Just trying to set up my new Netgear ReadyNas.....but whilst im setting it up it keeps going off and i can only get it back on by unplugging it and plugging it back in.

    Does it have some irratating power setting or have i got a duff?!

    Sounds a tad iffy to me - I have one I use just for system state backups and backups of our Navaho server - it certainly should not keep powering down and back on.

    That is not all - tell me what you were doing ? Come on, own up - I mean last week I was trying to connect to an iSCSI device through a 10/100 switch [ which I owned up and in which I was called a spoon ] - so come on...OUT WITH IT !!

    I hadn't connected the kettle lead thingy to the power pack properly. I must have been kicking it under the desk....

    We can turn this into a 'what stupid thing have you done this week' style thread then ;-)

    I myself spent half an hour trying to resurrect some hardware - only to remember I'd deliberately scuppered it myself as we'd virtualised the server a month ago....spanner

    What stupid thing have you done this week?

    ...I've come back to work!!! I was on holiday for a fortnight and now I'm back in the office.

    Other than that I spent 10 mins trying to work out why a teachers name had disappeared for the Marksheet owners list in Sims before it occured to me that only one year is open for reporting and she doesn't teach that year. Hence she doesn't own any markheets!!

    Rebooted a server with DRBD mirrors to Windows VMs - all Windows Server VMs promptly quit and the MDADM software RAID array and DRBD volumes all decided they needed to resync. Network going very slow just at the moment...

    Logged into the production website instead of the development website and wiped the entire front page content... Think my heart actually stopped for a second when I realised what I'd done.
