As expected, this was a very intense week of work. The software installation project went well. Working with the vendor's on-site installation technician we installed the system on 50 client PCs, two staff management PCs, three print release stations, and the server. He was able to write an installation script that removed the old –and lousy– software system and installed the great new stuff. Made the process consistent and quick. Still, I wound up with work days no shorter than 10 hours and extending, on Monday, to 16 hours. Had lunch out twice with our director and the technician and discovered a couple of good places to eat. At the end of four days the system was running excellently well providing users with computer use time management and print management services at a level they were not used to. Only one component did not install and that was due to a Windows Server service that somehow went missing in the past several years. I'll fix that and all will be in good order. Spent today watching a movie on TV (U-verse is great), going out to lunch at Chipotle followed by a walk around the mall, and generally resting and relaxing at home. Tomorrow is my Saturday to work on weekend rotation so the grind starts again. Yeah, one heck of a week.
