    Working in IT you get many days such as you experienced today and speaking from my own personal experience. Well not to worry as the sun would shine again:)

    'Tis true what Onoski says. I had a sun-shiny day today (unusual for a Monday). Ripped apart everyone's phone stats this morning, 70 calls logged, 3 escalations before lunch (nearest was 32 and 3), then ripped though the 2nd line queue for our offshore users in one afternoon.Lzy b******d last week hadn't even looked at it, I know this because he would have noticed his call that he's put in that queue by mistake on Thursday if he'd bothered to look.
    One more pi55ed off user to deal with cos he's a bit lazy.

    Best days in IT = Quiet days with very few calls, so you can concentrate on playing with new technology or implementing something cool (current flavour of the month is OpsMgr/Service Manager)

    Worst days in IT = Accidentally pushing out a Windows XP reformat task sequence to All Systems in SCCM with no OS requirement.

    Good Day = Any day that don't include a meeting about finances
    Bad Day = Any day that does include a meeting about finances


    Those meetings are boring, could go for a sleep and no one would notice

    LOL... yeah SCCM can be dangerous! Speaking if OpsMgr, how do you like? I am looking at a solution for monitor servers, reporting, etc...

    Now you've definately got my attention and would be looking out in the near future when this is implemented in our shop to avoid.

    Nah days like this help you appreciate when everything is going well. I love pressure me, its as if I don't like myself tbh :S Volunteered to go on call today because I haven't felt that stressed today, lets have ittttt!!!!!

    Best Day in IT = Payday :)

    Worst Day in IT = When I was a new Mainframe Op I meant to send a cheeky message to another console and instead sent it to everyone with mainframe access. I was this close (holds thumb and forefinger together) to ending my IT career at 20 years of age. Ah them were the days :)

    OpsMgr is good, but can require a lot of work to get it working how you want it, especially with integration with other System Centre products. We're actually on our third deployment of it and are taking things very slowly before building it up.

    Yeah, it's stupid. If you don't want a PXE advertised OSD task sequence to not appear in run advertised programs then you need to set the OS requirement as something you don't currently use in your organisation (Win2000 for example).

    I suppose in an ideal world you'd build up smaller more specific collections and advertise on more of an ad hoc basis, or use direct membership, but it's still annoying if you want something ONLY PXE.
