State of the Ed
Some days you're at work, and things just _move_ y'know? I don't get those kinds of days often enough - the kind where you feel like you've actually been accomplishing things. Stuff got done today, which was lovely.

Sadly it happens all too infrequently. We have an awful helpdesk system - above and beyond the usual hate I have for a computer giving me orders, this one doesn't actually do a very good job of it either.

Ah well.

So anyway, we had the user who decided he needed some files recovered - but didn't know what it was, or where it was, only that it was there last week, and isn't this week.

But more we had some backup configuring, an impromptu 'woops I deleted 2Gb of really important data' that by the magic of hourly snapshots, they didn't even lose an hour's work on it. (OK, so they probably didn't care at that point, but it's professional pride).

Next weekend we have <LJ-USER="Zaitan"> visting Coventry. He's in town on business, but an opportunity to meet up with friends presents itself.

Weekend after, I'm off to copenhagen, with <LJ USER="tylana"> and <LJ USER="Ehrine">.

Which should be fun. Was last there on the tall ships race, some few years ago, but didn't get to see much of the city.
