The long dark working day of the ict technician....

Another day, another nightmare, another crisis of confidence.
Got in today and admin couldn't get onto the network. Sorted with telephone assistance from network expert who did the reconfigure yesterday. That was the high point of the day.

It just went downhill from there.
The plan was to go around the place and sort out the computers, put printers on, sort desktops, make sure everything was where I wanted it etc etc.
I got as far as the ict suite. There are huge software issues. At least 5 bits of network software just aren't working right. And not coincidentally, they're not working right on all of the machines that I've had a hand in setting up. Great.

So by the end of the day I was totally stressed out, fed up and contemplating looking for an easier job. The Teaching Assistant side of this job, working with the children, is so wonderful. But the network and hard ict side is just proving too much right now. Maybe I'll get through it this time. But what about next time. Or the time after that?

Not happy. What a tremendous understatement that is.
