server

Birddog lives...

I know, it even surprises me. You'd think the 3rd time a 10 year old server disappered from the network, it would be down for the count. Nope, it was just lost. I think it had gone blind for a while and when it could see again it didn't know where it was. Well I've pointed it in the right direction and now it's all better. Least until next time. He now had a buddy, Tornado, just in case he get's lost again. Maybe Tornado will be helpfull in regaining contact. 

Work....

This morning I've been installing software on the new citrix server. I guess i'll need to install all this stuff on the backup server as well, but that'll wait till another day. Right now the app of the hour is Visual Fox Pro 9. As much as I hate VFP our company refuses to see the light and continues to use it.

I'm also attempting to recover data from a failed hard drive of one of our programmers. It's been running about 15 hours now and it's just at 1%. It has recovered quite a bit of data so far and looks like it's moving again. Hopefully it'll finish soon. Gotta get the data off and then go to Dell to get a replacement drive.
