We use Novell. Our system's engineers threaten to quit if we go Active Directory. L O L

Actually most of our IT department (the main one) walked out last year. I don't think it had as much to do with Active Directory as it did with HR and the IT administration group.

It goes 100% over on Tuesday night. Wednesday morning everyone will be dealing with the change. The number of apparent problems will determine the amount of time the change will consume all IT resources.

Most are running Windows XP. There may be some Macs (not sure what's happening on that side). The big issues will be network access to personal and shared network spaces. Then of course the password issue (always prevelant). Windows Vista is allowed on machines, but it is not supported.

Well it's my go home time. Not sure what the plan is for tonight. Need to go buy a wedding present before Saturday's wedding. Not sure anyone has the energy to do that, kids are both tired and whiny at school.

See ya all!

M. And I have indeed been accused of being a lurker :P Though in all honesty I'm more just an excessive reader.
As evidenced by the fact that I'm on here right now via BlackBerry while signing a lease for an apartment for next year hehe.

Hey Fen! It's cool up here in the mountains. Well compared to the beach! You could raft in the Nantahala Gorge. That water is always cold.

evening all.

had to work downtown today. got lost coming and going, or is it going and coming? But I didn't go the wrong way down any one-way streets!

I back read - to much to comment on.

I figure a random she is reported to have said that will suffice as my comment on today's activity.
