After years of working in the nineteenth, possibly early twentieth century we finally look like we are going to network all the computers in our office.
For years it has been deemed ‘too hard’, there have been logistical and cost issues based around the age of the building etc.
Looks like we will get two new servers, one Windows based and one Unix based for our proprietary software.
We need a couple of new computers around the place with the exception of mine, which is only a couple of months old.
To get round the problems that held us back previously we are going with a wireless network. I can’t wait.
Because we are located 10km outside the city of Devonport we have been unable to get broadband Internet access. Telstra the Australian telecommunications supplier tell us we should have broadband by the end of this year. This will allow us to network our two other branches back to head office here.
Finally be able to control the little bar stewards in the branches and get them to run a decent structured filing system. Type A personality shining through.
I know it’s all basic computer network stuff, but when the system you are currently using is that old you have to pedal to keep the lights on anything new on the horizon is welcome.
English football season starts in a fortnight with my team Wolverhampton Wanderers one of the favourites to win promotion from the Coca Cola Football League Championship.
First game is on August 8th against Stoke City and works out to be 9:15pm Sunday Australian time. I’ll listen to it live via the Internet.
I’m just about back to eating normally after my encounter with the dentist although why they design tooth cavities to be exactly the same size as cooked rice is beyond me.
Keep on rinsing.
