    Hi there!

    So... I'm back. After rather unpleasant incident few months ago I totally lost the desire to visit CertForums. This combined with my new (at the time) rather demanding job made me stop participating in CF community.

    I think I finally got over the fact I got infraction for f**k all and the big project at work is nearly finished so I thought I'll drop by and say Hi.

    In case anyone's interested what the big project was:
    - Migration of SBS 2003 to 2008 R2 domain and Exchange 2010
    - Cleaning up AD after removing (as in just offline the server) of unsuccessful SCOM and SCCM installations by my predecessor. + DNS sort out
    - Design and deployment of a virtual infrastructure for testing (we're a software development house) - 150+ VMs
    - Design and deployment of our internal infrastructure (upgrade in some instances) - Sharepoint 2010, TFS 2008, 4 SQL Servers + bog standard file/print/etc. services
    - Deployment of Forefront TMG 2010 array
    - Rolling out DPM 2010 backup solution backing up 6TB of data every day
    - Rewiring and rearranging all racks
    - Rewiring and fixing our VoIP infrastructure
    - Cleaning up other mess after my predecessor was dismissed for not having a clue.
    - Mirrored pair of live SQL Server database servers in our web hosting environment (the one that hosts our customers' sites)

    By the way: All this has been delivered with no downtime in service during the office hours, so loads of overtime, evenings and weekends at work.

    To Do:
    - Whole live hosting infrastructure redesign
    - SCOM for both networks (internal and one in the datacentre) - waiting for 2012 version
    - SCVMM when 2012 comes out

    Anyway, good to be back.

    Luke
