One way around the problems

Follow-up to Death to Demarco! (or fileserver problems day 4) from Innovating Research!

Well one way around the network glitches (which turn out to be not just down to Demarco – though she's a prime culprit for some of them still) is to work from home – which is what I'm doing today. So at least I know I won't suddenly have a network outtage when I'm trying to make a crucial calculation or edit the reading list report. It's down to the its final days now and I really don't want to spend any more time on it after next Friday if it can really be avoided…

Death to Demarco! (or fileserver problems day 4)

And so for the fourth day in a row we have file-server problems here. Today was a personal best for the system – 2 minutes after logging in (just after 8am) and we get fileserver down. Darn, by always coming in early I can usually be guaranteed an hour of pain-free computing and get some work done. But not today.

Seems to have stabilised for now, though for how long I just don't know. Beginning to lose count of how much effective work time's been lost this week, but it's easily over half a day. If it keeps up at this rate this will end up being effectively a 4 day week (at least for anything much achieved).

Normally when the net goes down, there's some paper work to do. Sadly with all this down time, I'm so up to date with the paper work that I'll be reduced to dusting the desk next (in between gnashing of teeth and questioning the legitimacy of the fileserver's parentage).

sigh Ah well, at least the sun's shining…
