Not a good start

Today was the first day back for the majority of the staff, and featured the following annoyances:

  • Two dead motherboards (one not in warranty).
  • A power supply that randomly shut off without blowing any fuses, and mysteriously turned right back on again when turned off at the wall and turned on again.
  • No progress on an issue that will deeply annoy about 60 teachers tomorrow.
  • The entire site (along with half the town) lost mains power, and it still isn’t back up. The UPSs have long since run out of juice by now.

Tomorrow is the first day back for the students, and is going to be a total pain in the butt.
