Tech Meeting

I went to a tech­ni­cian meet­ing in Ashe coun­ty today with my fel­low Techs. We met at Ashe Coun­ty High School to talk about all things tech relat­ed to the school sys­tem. We got some good infor­ma­tion on how to serve the schools bet­ter, and man­age the 5000 PCs that we have.

New Phone

I am get­ting a new phone from work, a Sam­sung Omnia I910. Looks to be a cool phone, it has a full brows­er (Opera) and WiFi sup­port.

A+ Certified and ITEC

I final­ly took the A+ test last week, and passed.  I have been mean­ing to take that test for a long time, but nev­er got around to it.  I made a 750 on the first test, and 865 on the sec­ond.  I plan on tak­ing the Net­work+ next.

The Tech­nol­o­gy depart­ment went to the ITEC trade show in Char­lotte on the 25th.  There was about 20 ven­dors, and a few cool prod­ucts.  But it was not a very impres­sive show.

Hibriten Mountain

I went up on Hib­riten Moun­tain today to work on an air con­di­tion­er at one of our tow­er sites.  Took some pic­tures of the view.  I also got some pic­tures of the new Google Data Cen­ter, but I don’t think they would like me to post them.  I have more pic­tures from Hib­riten over on my Flickr page.

Wireless

We have been doing a lit­tle work on the wire­less stuff the past week. I have some pret­ty inter­est­ing images of the tow­ers and the equip­ment. Also a very froze air con­di­tion­er.

New Tower

We are putting a new tow­er up at work. I am also work­ing on a laptop/wireless set­up for my truck. I have ordered a 1 watt amp and 8.5dbi mag-mount omni. I hope to get that done next week some­time.

This week I am out at Atlantic Beach for the North Car­oli­na Edu­ca­tion Tech­ni­cians Con­fer­ence. Should be alot of fun.
