Well, the good news was that my new SATA hard drive and DVD_RAM/Lightscribe drive showed up. So, I’m reinstalling from scratch. Computers have a way of reflecting their owners like a car does. you have the people who “drive” efficient computers, muscle computers. I use one of those Frankenstein computers that takes a lot of maintenance to keep going. yes, my video card is held in place with a zip tie, the DVD burner relies on duct tape, and I can’t close the lid. I’m always having to fix something. It’s fast, though, and to date, I’ve invested $400 in it.
It’s kind of a perfect storm of computer stuff for me this weekend. I started out last week updating the district’s servers for the DST time change this weekend.
Application servers that use Java are the most vulnerable. I was updating the server that controls all the district’s time clocks. 328 people punch clocks in the district. Monday’s going to be a busy day, I’m guessing. Oh, well.
