Server Woes

Entry 500 for Thursday August 26, 2021

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? Visit from our education partner (Brenda from theFood Bank of Guadalajara) in both of my #TC2007B sessions; more preparation for campus scheduling of the #TC2007B groups and classes; found out that I need to put a budget request together for early next week for a Cybersecurity lab on campus; met with Diego and Jorge R. about Cybersecurity lab; meeting with system level department chairs to update them about our plans for cloud computing servers for #TC2007B; meetings with #TC1028 students Luis and Diana; server unlock for a group; test run with the Guatemala team in preparation for my talk on Friday;
  2. What did you enjoy? Really nice feedback sessions in both of the #TC2007B sessions with Brenda.
  3. What did you find difficult? This week has been crazy with trying to schedule the on-campus sessions for both #TC2007B groups while balancing the protocols, classroom setups, student and teacher concerns. Also, I found out our blade for running virtual machines died earlier this summer just now. I was planning on using those and they won’t be replaced.
  4. What has changed? Our servers (via blade housed by the IT department) is dead through no fault of our own and this brings me back to mourning the death of my on-campus machine/server canuck.
