Work Experience: Day 1 of 10

Right, so I’m doing some Year 10 work experience with my school computer technician, Mark for the next two weeks.

It’s just after lunch here, and I’m just waiting for 4 more computers to re-image before I work on the next 4, having done 11 of 25 already. Overall, it’s been slightly boring. It’s a waiting game, really.

But we did do one thing before that, we found out that one of the hard drives on the library backup server had died, and we grabbed one out, it still worked, so we ended up having to grab the whole server and bring it to the tech office to test. Two more drives and we found the one. It just failed to power on.

We ended up putting a 2TB drive in place of the old 1TB one, and we’re now mirroring the main drive’s partitions onto it and the other half we’ll turn into another backup area, it’s still re-synchronizing.

I’d better go check the computers and see if they’ve finished stage 1.


Overall, I like this job!
