But I found it in the end switching tabs back to the Fishworks blog and then back to the site and waiting for it, and it was rather slow but I put that down to my previously reported issues to Cutter about how its showing my support contracts....
I've applied it to the 7120 and its alive still so its not that disastrous the update, nothing on the new SAN yet, not had time to do anything yet as its been a mega day today, but its not having kernal panics or anything so must be a good start.....

I think I'm a couple of releases behind (haven't been any major new features and this release has been rock-solid) so I'd best schedule some downtime and catch up... Problem with working in a school is when to do it? Work late on a Friday, give up a Saturday morning, or wait until the next holiday?
My 7110 last got updated in the summer to support 2008 R2, but still has all the deffered updates waiting from back in the time of the de-dupe for it, so its got a lot of work to do!. I need to do a complete backup of it first though as I need to do it and get it the same level as the other one then we can replicate nicely.
I would also like to thank Kim for his prompt contact with me this morning about my support contract issues, Kim and the team at Cutter are brilliant, and I am sure that my issues will be resolved.

I still haven't figured out a way to manage downtime in a school that expects business-level uptime but gives you school-level budgets. Rock and a hard place, working nights would mostly solve it for me but at what personal cost? I wouldn't get paid/TOIL for it, if I start doing it on a regular basis then it becomes 'expected' rather than something I'm willing to do on occasion, Friday nights out start to disappear when something goes wrong at 6pm after work...
