Welly, sounds like you having a bad day. Dont understand why they spend all that money on servers and dont fit ac in server rooms, what idiots. I hace a small ac unit in my server cubboard to keep mine cool.

    I wonder how much the initial outlay is compared to a AC unit with a 6 year maintenance contract.

    No I was after some polishing pads but they didn't have any. All I bought was air fresheners and glass polishing cloth!

    Do you have to order a house hold appliance to hide the spend on the suspension?

    I don't like oil burners but this is nice. I could do some miles in that no problem at all.

    I wish it was that easy.
    Its just the way it happened.


    Reesy, You can't beat a good oil burner for chewing up motorway miles.
    My next car has to be a white avant.
    I love white so very much.

    Mate, you are preaching to the choir here - I couldn't agree more.

    Like I said initially. Short term gain - long term loss.

    I don't mention MPG anymore. Nor do I mention car insurance. When other people talk about what they can get to the gallon and how cheap their monthly/yearly payment is, it annoys me. So I don't talk about those

    We simply will not sell servers without an accompanying UPS. End of. Built into the price.

    On another unrelated IT note, InPrivate browsing (Or incognito etc etc depending on which browers) is great for using on customer's computers to view what you want on the web.... Until you close the window by mistake and then have to log back into everything again!!

    Hey, heres one for the Androidians (I made that up!! Yay!!)...

    GFI Vipre (Yes we are a GFI Reseller). Search for it on Android Market. It's free and in BETA form currently, however it is BRILLIANT!!

    You can do so much with it (this is nicked from the GFI web site):

    Antivirus
    VIPRE Mobile's powerful Antivirus protects your data and privacy from malicious software that can affect your Android device's normal operation — or worse, steal or destroy personal information.

    Remote Wipe
    If your device is lost or stolen, you can easily remotely wipe its contents so that no one will be able to see your personal information.

    Remote Alarm
    Leave your device somewhere but you can’t find it? Make it sound an alarm with the push of a button from the VIPRE Mobile website.

    Remote Lock or Unlock
    If you misplaced your phone and find it in a known “safe” location but don’t want others to access your information, you can remotely lock your device and protect its contents so that no one will be able to see your personal information or use your device.

    Backup and Restore
    Be assured your data is safe in case of a disaster. You can back up contacts, pictures, apps, videos, MP3s and almost anything else using VIPRE Mobile’s online backup. Access or restore your data from anywhere. Its fast and easy. You can also backup your data to an SD card.
