Bad Day

by cybdiver In reply to Worlds Laziest IT Adminis ...

<p>Sometimes IT just happens.</p>
<p>Power supply blew up and so did a hard drive, no panic and no worries.  Actived the backup server, copied the data off the drives.  Ran a drive utility against the bad drive and found it was bad.  Replaced the drive.</p>
<p>Total time wasted 1.5 hours,  Sometimes hardware just takes a dump.  The more you have the more chances you are of seeing IT happen.</p>
<p>Keep spares when you can, you boss will hate the idea of have to buy stuff in advance, but wait until his/her hard drive crashes.  For those companies that can afford it, have a spare available with your company image sitting on the shelf.  While theirs is in the shop, you do a simple swap out.  Poof your an instant hero.  Can't afford spare parts?  How much does down time cost?</p>

How do you organize your days?

by cybdiver In reply to Worlds Laziest IT Adminis ...

<p>So how do you do it all?  What gets you through the day?  Do you carry a cumpled up napkin or a high tech PDA?  If someone stole that notebook with all your clients name and addresses where is is backed up?</p>
<p>My father ( pre-PDA era) used a thing called a Rolodex. That rotating card file. It was his life.  He knew the importance of it and guarded it with his life.  He started backing it up with an Apple <a href="file://\\e">\\e</a> and a program called apple works.</p>
<p>Sorry he missed out on Outlook, PDA's and messaging systems.  My weapon of choice is an IPAQ with WiFi. </p>
<p>Whats yours?</p>

Computer show

<p>Computer show today in Ft. Lauderdale.  Lots of junk but it's a good place to get some spare parts. Try the Ft. Lauderdale War Memorial Auditorium. </p>

Free Wifi

by cybdiver In reply to Worlds Laziest IT Adminis ...

<p>I've been looking all over, and I am finding alot of Free WiFi. Personally I think all Wifi should be free.</p>
<p>McDonalds is charging for Wifi? Silly that a company so large would need to charge for something others are giving away.  3 cheers to Ft. Lauderdale International Airport! the signal is free.  Help start the revolution. Free the Signal!  Share the information. Let people learn.  </p>
<p>So what do you think?  Free the Wifi or hold it ransom?</p>

Free Wifi 2

by cybdiver In reply to Worlds Laziest IT Adminis ...

<p>I'm on the hunt for Free Wifi. </p>
<p>It's amazing how many people just don't lock their routers.  Simple WEP, would keep their home comptuers safe.  Bad for them better for us.</p>

Free Wifi 2

by cybdiver In reply to Free Wifi 2

<p>Most routers only offer up one subnet.  If the routers would offer up multiple subnets then everyone could share some bandwidth and keep their internal networks safe.</p>

Free WiFi Found

Try Nova University. You'll have to be on campus, but if you know the area it's a sweet place to connect.

Wet WiFi or Hijacking?

by cybdiver In reply to Worlds Laziest IT Adminis ...

<p>The debate continues, but does it really? If the signal is there it's "Wet", if the signal is encrypted then you are stealing or "HiJacking".  I think the seperation is really that simple.</p>
<p>It does not take a genius to lock down a router.  </p>
