If you don’t already know, I work as a Linux Admin for a School District in the Chicago Suburbs. Today is are kids last day of school and things are winding down. Unfortunately I don’t get the summers off like teachers. I get extremeley jealous of my wife this time of year as she is a Teacher and her last day of work was last wednesday.
Our summers are either completely slow or extremely busy, there is no inbetween on this front. We either have almost no projects or more projects than we know what to do with. I have some server upgrades I have to do. Our desktop techs have 800 computers they are installing and I will probably be brought in to help work on that. I’m not looking forward to it, as it’s the most computers we’ve installed at any one time in the 7 years that I have worked here. At least in the summer we don’t have to deal with daily help desk calls as 90% of the staff is off for the summer. This is when we can get some real work done.
