    I probably should consider seppuku then. Where do you live? Or at least a general sense of direction, eg 10 mins from Hyde Park etc.

    Unboxing stuff is different to actually owning £200,000 worth of equipment.

    :roll: nice pic Kieran!! Yea I never used the RAM properly, just tested it at 1066 to make sure it can hit spec. Might even be a really well performing set, I dunno.

    Go on then cheesy - I'll bite - what did you unbox? Anything interesting?

    Teeth whitening lol :)

    I bet the new network needed a new server and then you have to set that system up to work with all the client computers in the building some software sided stuff, intranet ect. Maybe some new client computers. Loads of planning how to wire up the building, hopefully something like that is just replacing the old cabling so its easier that way, maybe some routers and switches. Setting up the routers and switches and managing the ip addresses (static ip addresses).

    At college i wish i did HND Networking, I did almost a year of Tech Support and then left college.

    yeah, apparently they wanted specific brands + set ups, and they've asked for some weird things like a 12 core 24 thread server just for file storage :wtf:

    and its half the parts, the rest of the stuff is a few hard drives/switches etc

    Id advise the customer you wouldn't personally have one but ultimately its their decision and they are paying lol

    Its like when a Pakistani guy asked my uncle if he could keep the wall bare and "that colour" when he got his wall plastered. My uncle was like personally i wouldn't but its okay to leave it like that if you wish (it was like a salmon colour).
