  • Lots of computer work

    I have spent the most part of the last two weeks just doing IT Administration things for Angola Assembly of God. I spent all day yesterday and today making things ready for the transition of the office computer to a new one. Today I have almost determined that I will wait for the present Office Secretary’s retirement at the end of August to finalize the demise of the current office Dell Inspiron 530. In the mean time, the new Dell 960 is ready for the Treasurer’s transactions, the Quickbooks master and Board Secretary’s contributions. At the end of August I will copy over the emails files and add the Outlook Accounts for Office. Not too sure what we will do with the Pastor(s) accounts yet. It will be a whole new world at the end of the month that is for sure.

    Also, assisted a client with her technical issues with different machines and that was successfully resolved. My Dell Precision T5400 Workstation seems to be functioning well and as I write it is running the Dell Full Function test. So far she has passed with flying colors. I have been doing a lot with Team Viewer lately and the latest itteration has the WOL feature activated. Strangely, the T5400 does not seem to have a Wake-On-Lan function or if it does I have not found the key yet. BTW – If any readers have a couple of new 10K / 15K RPM 320+ GB HDD’s give me the price. My 160GB 10K Platters just do nt have sufficient space so I need to port over to the bigger drives and RAID 1 them. Perhaps I will just buy a external drive but that will slow things down a lot but some data I hardly ever use so it may not be too bad.

    Time seems to be at a premium lately and there seems to be less and less of it this year. I can only imagine what it will be like this winter when we move onto the boat. I am trying to get the computers ready so I wish the WOL for the Precision worked. Oh well, maybe I need to add a PCI NIC that has WOL. You would think that the Broadcom 57xx would have this so I better check right now.
