  • Last week
    • Network issues
      • 530 solved; UITS says it was a low-likelihood misconfiguration on an upstream switch, should not happen with other switch installs. We'll see.
      • 538 in progress. UITS says no problems on their end, but still can't access host in there. I have an office trip tomorrow to investigate
    • HD swap Tucson
    • KVM console--my brute-force mod to the DVI cable worked. Removing the analog video pins from the pigtail cable for physical fit was enough to make everything connect.
    • JWilliams X2Go obs1 --> obs2 mystery: X forwarding is fine, X2Go connections from elsewhere are fine. Low priority "nice to have", agreed to wait and see
    • Excitement with new version of IssueTrak
    • NSIGUI modifications to deal with FTP weirdness and allow all users to overwrite files, also have further options in the pocket to avoid FTP altogether.

    • Aforementioned office trip
      • 538 host on network
      • Another drive swap
      • RMA create (site was broken last week)
