My week has been extremely busy. We had to help the residents at SIUE. It was fun but very exhausting. We were throw into a meeting at 9:00 am Monday morning and then had to start the help at NOON. We had to visit every desktop in the residence halls. I was paired with my friend Phil in Bluff Hall. We did have some fun but it was a long week with some long hours at work.

Well last week was a bruiser. I spent most of it running around fixing any machine I could touch. Oh well the campus is safer for it now. Now there is a new virus out called SoBig.F. Everyone keep updated on your virus definitions. Luckily I am not having as much trouble with this one. I just found out that FOX has cancelled one of my favorite summer shows called Keen Eddie. Oh well I will find something else to watch.

Well it was another long day and it was well spent. We have covered the majority of the university and have the worm under control. It was a great time seeing all pull together in an emergency situation. Well at least as emergency as it gets for us techies. Next week we should pretty much be back to work as normal.

Just found this tool that could help you administrators evaluate your networks and patch them. This will scan a network and give you the ip address of any machine that needs to be patched.

Another day trying to stay on top of the Blaster worm. SIUE has a webpage that has patches and instructions. Hopefully no one needs it by now, but if you do there it is. One good thing, my iPod helped a lot today. I used it to keep my sanity and to pass the time watching machines scan themselves. I just need to get some more music encoded and loaded onto the drive.

Quote of the week from this article:
"I just don't see why, after spending thousands of dollars for a computer, I should have to devote all this time to taking care of it," he said. "No one told us it'd be a full-time job to have a computer. We just wanted to be able to e-mail our kids at college."

I add get a clue and buy a MAC!


Another long day of fitting the worm. I wish this would go away quickly. Everyone please patch your machines.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! If you have a windows machine apply the Windows Update patches NOW! Read this article for more info. There is a serious bug in Windows that lets people hack into your machine and run programs. Really bad news! If you can not get to Windows update go here and download the patch NOW! More info on the W32.Blaster.Worm on SARC.

I spent all week last week playing with my new toy. I got an iPod. It is great. I think everyone who enjoys music should get one so they can listen all the time. The only bad thing is that my car will not accept a tape adapter so I can not use it in the car yet. I am looking into this add on for the iPod that should solve that problem.

Amber and I went to see Phil at Soulard Market this morning. He is selling some photos that he has taken in the area. There are some really nice photos. He still needs to finish his website though. It was our first trip to the market. It was neat to see all the fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers and other items for sale.

Dave has just moved into his new apartment. Here are some pictures he sent me of the apartment. It looks nice Dave. Now you just need some furniture. :)

It was a long week at work. I had to help replace some Tangents in the Library. The manager who works over there was out on vacation. It ended up being enjoyable and a challenge. I am glad it is over now though. It was a long week.
