In blog tradition, that is... Real Life(tm) has taken over, somewhat.
My sister was home for two weeks from the UK where she and her husband are currently working, which was nice. My girlfriend has now managed to meet all of my direct family! Most of the extended too, but that's only because my extended family is rather small.
Work went crazy, beyond all measure this weekend.. the latest M$ vulnerability hadn't been patched on the thousands of student desktops around campus, and the outbreak of a new exploit meant that they were all shut down, and rebuilt from scratch. Thankfully, it's not too difficult - 2 CD's worth of Ghost image later, and they're pretty much installed and waiting for login. I personally don't have much to do with the windows stuff, but since I was about I helped out with one of the largest labs, and got it done in approximately 3 hours. (roughly 140 PC's).
Not to mention, the fact that my fellow Unix admin decided to apply for the job upstairs, as a DBA, and got it... an ad for his replacement is currently being advertised. If you want to come work in NZ with me, feel free to apply! I'm even on the interview panel. Oh, and hurry, the application closing date is 5pm Tuesday, NZST (+1200) time! (the 4th of May)
There's more to blog about, but for now, I'll join in the latest blogging meme which I stumbled across whilst searching for an RSS reader for my PocketPC phone..
