the end of a long week

Been a week of major problem this past 5 days, the problems peaked this morning when one of our three main servers decided it did not like of its hard disks. Fortunately dealing with the problem was easy, contact support, arrange new hard disk and shut the server down. Trying to educate the users that the server is not working and to use one of the other two servers took all morning and I am only talking 80 users.

Firstly they would not log off from the failing server, then when they had been asked not to log back on to the server they did log back on and got upset when I kicked them off the server. Then when they could not log back on they complained that they were unable to log back on. Fortunately by lunch time the message had gotten through to most of them.

I am hoping to get a couple of rides in this weekend, we have rain over night which should be finished early morning so maybe lunch time I can pop out for a ride. Might even try and get the Cannondale out on Saturday, just the new chain and a couple of little jobs to do. Sunday looks like the better day, so hopefully I will get a nice long ride out on Sunday.

the long haul

Up early tomorrow morning and heading for head office to put in my weekly appearance, a few thing to do but totally lacking in enthusiasm for the trip, maybe at 5:15am tomorrow I will feel differently………

Life is catching up with me today, the day started well and I felt ok when I got back from Northampton this afternoon but since then it has been down hill. Just finished doing some work on the servers at work, fortunately I was able to do it remotely but have to leave it to this late hour so nobody is on them.

Well only a short blog to night, going to see if I can get my head straight and to bed early to await the 5:15am alarm call.
