    I'm glad to report that I observed Columbus day yesterday ; I got lost in a grocery store looking for spice and I declared the local food section as the Indian food section.

    Why do I constantly want to upgrade? It isn't even really an upgrade, more I just get bored of what i have after a few months. Specifically talking about my laptop here, but I know I wouldn't find anything faster for anywhere near what I paid. And its a thin ultrabook 2 in 1. :shrug:

    Missed a call from my daughter's school (was in the server room, anyone that ever went in a server room will know why I missed the call! ), I kinda panicked, it has to be an emergency or something (I didn't get a voicemail notification so I don't know if they left a voicemail).
     
    I called my wife, thinking they contacted her after I didn't answer, but no ... WTF??? So I called the school to know what was up, but couldn't reach anyone, so I left a message on the admin secretary's voicemail.
     
    I get a call back 5 minutes later ... and turns out, my daughter goes around the school telling everyone that we're moving to a new house!!!  So the school was wondering if she was still coming to that school next year since it's a small local school and places are limited!
     
    I had to explain that we're currently looking to buy a house, and we've placed an offers on a house this week. Now I'll have to explain to my daughter that buying a house isn't like buying milk, that placing an offer on a house doesn't mean we're buying it, and even if we DO buy it, it doesn't mean we're becoming the owners right away! I really didn't think to explain all the nuances to my daughter! lol

    I have """invented""" a vertical server rack
     

     
    I've loaded it with six matching servers, and I bought a proper KVM switch for it
     
    It'll be my data transfer/copy/recovery station, being able to do up to 6 jobs at once, completely independent of each other. The four hot swap bays on the front of each server make an awesomely easy way of working with them, and the remaining 2 sata channels run the unneeded optical drive and the 64GB boot SSD.

    The other admins at work just realized I'm the 2nd best at writing up powershell scripts (the other guy used to be a dev but he's on vacation, so yeah!). So now I'm being transferred any tickets regarding correcting existing scripts, or for creating new ones. So I spent most of yesterday and this morning on that!
     
    Thing is, while I'm good at it, I hate powershell scripting!

    PSA ; please, don't run ANY type of cables on top of a heating element (in this case, an electric baseboard).
     
    I've had techs spend 2 days trying to fix a printer that would randomly stop showing up on the network.
     
    Unfortunately, it was all remote support, and the end user was completely useless (he had a hard time following directions to power cycle the printer).
     
    Today I was dispatched to help him out since it was a VIP user (top management).
     
    Turns out, he has an electric baseboard at the bottom of a window, and that happens to be where his work desk is ... All the cables (Ethernet, HDMI, power brick for his laptop) we're sitting ON TOP of the baseboard. Both Ethernet cables were burnt to a crisp (literally, B U R N T !!!)
     
    So I spent an hour fixing someone else's mistake, under a desk, eating dust and burnt Ethernet cable particles. Made sure all the cables were routed properly and away from the baseboard.
     
    Jesus Christ people ...
