    Don't know about you boys and girls, but i've had a week from hell! Nothing but problem upon problem upon problem! I've spent at least 2 hours logged on from home every night this week, and also have to be in the office tonight from 9pm until potentially 2am for a scheduled change!

    The one shining light . . . . . I got plans to go out with the lads this weekend and watch the footie, then up for a curry in the local curry house! Can't come soon enough!

    Hows everyone elses weeks been?

    A four day AD risk assessment engagement followed by a one day community meeting where I had to give a presentation. Just had some dry ham on the train and hope to be home in a few hours.

    Busy week for me. Rolled out a couple of DCs for a new customer at a remote site and also installed a new Cisco phone system – really need to get some Cisco certs at some point.

    Putting together a Server 2012 proposal just now which I wasn’t expecting.

    Hope Arsenal win – if they lose then that’s my bet out the window already! :)

    Spurs were hammering Arsenal until Adebayor's sending off. Shame as it could have been a good game.

    My week consisted of dealing with a company who provide us with a massive scanning system and also provide the PC and support it. The PC which drives this scanner crashed and needed a replacement hard drive.

    When speaking to this company and asking them to come and fit a new hard drive and re-install they told us that it wasn't a 5 minute job to rebuild all this software and it would take a few days and instead they said they would like to restore a image of the current hard drive to the new hard drive. My reply to this was brilliant lets get it done then as we have a client coming to look at this system on Monday morning. This engineers reply was that the image aka the backup of this hard drive was on the hard drive itself.

    I cannot repeat what i said to him.....and trust me im not making this scenario up. This company had actually taken a backup and then stored it on the hard drive itself. Im still struggling to get my head round it.

    One word... gutted.

    After the first 15 minutes we were flying, could have been 2 up, but as soon as we went down to 10, I knew it was going to get ugly! :( Bad times.

    I wish I could say my weekend and new week were improving, but alas, more of the sam proverbial brown stuffs.

    Not only did I have the pain of Watching Adebayor single handedly screw us over against Arsenal with a ridiculous challenge, but I was then somewhat ill on Saturday night, yesterday was ok, then back to work today and straight into trouble! Change that I put in place on Firday night seems to have gone a little wrong, so loads of calls etc, rolled back and resolved the issue for the time being but not a day of looking at Cisco logs and configs trying to find the cause of the issues! Whoop Whoop!

    Congrats Beerbaron on the VCP pass, at least someone is getting good news! :)
