life is never boring here.

february 5 2008

Time is moving far too fast.
When I was at Tai Chi, the months in between lessons seemed to have gone completely.

I had trouble doing all exercises, just because I've been far too stressed the past months, but I enjoyed it, and that's what counts.

The trainingshouse of my oldest was disconnected from internet by the provider.
They's received spamcomplaints and wrote a letter that within 48 hours the problem should be solved.

Problem is that the trainingshouse is part of a large organisation.
So the letter came in in the postroom, went to all sorts of departments and when it finally arrived at the house the connection was already gone.

The letter contained the advice to reformat all computers, limit accessibility and such.
Ofcourse the non-internet-understanding caretakers had all sorts of ideas in mind, causing my son to nearly panic, because he bought a few expensive programs for his ICT studies and he saw all money going through the drain.

And he needs full acess to internet, because he's in the middle of his ICT exams and he's starting practical learning.

So I jumped in.
I don't know anything about the subject, but internet is a great source of knowledge. LOL!

I told the caretakers what I was about to do after midnight, so they couldn't stop me, and contacted the provider. Explained the situation, told that all computers had been screened and that I had no access to the router and modem, and asked whether they should be checked too. Yes!

So the ICT department of the organisation is contacted mow.
They're kind of self fulfilled, but I also now they're not working at full capacity at the moment.
In the meantime I was able to formulate the problem in technical terms, so let's hope they want to cooperate.

In the meantime we're organising a meeting sometime next week, to inform the ingabitants of the trainingshouse and the caretakers about the issue and how they can prevent further problems in the future.

Life is never boring here, is it?
And there's always something new to learn.
