You'll need a bigger drop for the guillotine to work.

Is metal flat pack furniture more fun than the compressed sawdust kind?

This one will he holding about $60K worth of servers, so I'd better use all the screws.  Universal constant of flatpack applies - I'm taking in a grinder tomorrow to do some "customisation".

19 Days till a 53 user/7 server legal network has to be completely changed out across a long weekend, with a complete o/s change, a complete 6 version office upgrade, and a complete Practice Management System flip.  No pressure, only my main source of income reliant on success. 

A guillotine will be a mercy if it doesn't work after the go/nogo moment.

T minus 13 days till changeover begins.

4 unsolved roadblocks.

Suspect I’ll be living in this room for the foreseeable future.

Day 293.

9 Hours, 10 or 12 coffees, and a lot of typing later, the major roadblock falls.  Virtualising a server should not have been that hard.

I remember how annoyed my old dog was when we de-lumped her.  Now I know why!

Thought for a minute you'd been bitten by one your redback spiders, but you have stitches there, not legs.   Yes, OK till the local wears off, eh?

Can you take some Brufen, plus panadol?   John

Just an infected cyst.  Stung a bit, apparently it was surprising deep, and somewhat cheesy.

There is a nice product key for you to use in the above photo ;)

Having just rebuilt my "Trigger's Broom PC" for the 3rd time (nice case everything else replaced bit like an old triumph), I have just brought a new PC from Overclockers, ITbyte SSD, decent twin screen card etc. Still had to install Windows 10 on it (£2.50 key from Ebay) and then about 2 weeks realising all the software that I use but had forgotten about was missing. I kept the old PC running with its system disk so have been able to go back to it and retrieve documents, settings etc.. Still a PITA...

Interestingly the new PC is good but not much faster than the old one or much better to use, guess its like new cars there are all pretty good and do the job and the incremental gains are less with each new version.

Respect, couldn't do it for a living although I am sure it must be easier  in a professional environment.

The arms are a bloody great waste of space.  I'd put them on if I had tech monkeys sliding the servers in and out, but it's generally only me, and I know to be carefull.

There's an embaressment of riches when it comes to computers around the house, sometimes the horse has to match the coure, otherwise I just grab whatevers to hand.  I'm equally inefficient in a number of operating systems...

9:30pm Saturday.  The fact I'm still here may suggest that testing has not gone well...

May the force be with you!

I used to love building server arrays, don't get to do it much these days everything is virtual even in the archaic world of technology i work in.
