This is my second attempt at this post, it messed up the first time… now I have to retype this whole thing over again…. here goes…. and Jewel says I never post a lot in my blog… well, here it is…
Work was interesting, I had two people today in my training session, however they actually wanted to learn about Outlook, and actually seemed interested in learning, not just playing with Word Tutorials…. which is always a nice change of pace…
Next, I ended up playing memory traffic director. I ended up adding and taking memory out of 5 different machines in order to get all of the memory we wanted in each machine to work properly, that was fun… my boss and I tried taking memory out of an old server to put into the computers, but it didn’t work because even though the pin count was the same, the notches in the memory did not line up in one spot, so of course it wouldn’t work.
Next was lunch, which I actually took, which is quite rare for me. Not anything of much consequence during lunch….
After lunch, my boss and I replaced a dell power supply…. talk about unique setup… the power supply is on a pivot, and can lock into place, which is fine, but replacing the power supply wasn’t the most convenient thing on the face of the planet. First you have to actually unscrew the old power supply from the holder, and we had to remove a bracket because it interfered with the holder, so we started bending it, but it eventually all came off… cheap manufacturing… so that was fun putting that in.
Then, after that, came my meeting with the Director, Assistant Director, Head of Adult Services, Head of Children’s Services, and the person in Young People’s Department who usually handles the summer reading program… after completely redoing our entire summer reading program with them, I still have more meetings with the person from YPD, probably every Monday until June 13th…. but we’ll see….
Then I finally left work and headed to school, while I was driving to school, I got a frantic call from Erin saying that her bumper was pulled off of her car, from a small concrete blockade
. So after spending 45 minutes in the great Naperville weather, a balmy 42 degrees, with beautiful northeast winds around 20 mph, with the invigorating gray cloud cover, who couldnt love it, I finally got her bumper to stay up so she could drive it home and back to school and home
. Shell probably need a new one
Onto school, it was ok, but there was way too much information to have a quiz from on Wednesday. Ethernet Framing, bit timing, all essentially useless in practicality, but who I am I to argue with Cisco for such a fine class
.But I did manage to get a 98.2% on my quiz, I only missed one answer on a multiple choice, multiple answer question. Although that wasnt too hard since the instructor didnt prepare a Powerpoint presentation, so he read some questions directly from the quiz, so I only had to remember them for like 5 minutes
now I’m typing up notes to tonight’s lesson…. it’ll be interesting to get the pictures done….
. Rather long post
