Hats off to the lads from the Western Beacons and the West Brecon Cave Rescue teams last night, who were out in the weather carrying out a rescue while we were tucked up in base drinking coffee.

Yay! We had snow last night – had being the operative word in this sentence. I had a call last night about 2030 from Damien, telling me that the snow was falling quite heavily. Having reached the point where my head was spinning with AD crap, I decided to call it a day and head […]

Well, it’s well underway now with all the AD accounts moved to the new domain, the mailboxes slurped off as PSTs onto a USB disk ready for the move and everything nicely set up. I have to say that Microsoft is doing quite well on the security guides – their operating systems have gone from […]

So, kiddies, here’s a word of warning. That little sentence on the Microsoft Security Guide that reads something like “make damn sure your GPO is perfect before linking it to the OU or else“ isn’t kidding. Because of a brain fart last night, I added the built-in Administrator account to the “Deny log on over […]

Er, decided after reading friends’ LJ to slap in a few more details. Before I do, I wanted to say that after this post from , that if I’d have had any money at all to help, I’d have bought the ticket and got you over first class. It looks from the next post like things were kinda […]

Ok, so I’m a bit more impressed with Windows’ software RAID than I used to be (though it has been around 8 years since I played with it last – Windows NT). Two disks, I want them mirrored, but I also want the system installed on them. Hrm, how do you install a system onto […]

It’s been a quiet Christmas on the rescue front. Despite some nice sharp weather, we’ve had no callouts and other than a trip down to my Dad’s,  it’s all been very civilised. Nathan loved the Roboraptor I bought him – Arthur was a little less impressed. So today folks, I am sat in the office, hugging […]

Apologies for the lack of posts, I’ve been off ill for a few days with what has been called “man flu”, and I really didn’t feel like getting out of bed. After a few days off, I was quite looking forward to an early night last night before coming back to work today. You can […]

Seems that this time of year is popular for despondents, as is Pembrokeshire – must be the cliffs. The latest was a search yesterday that I was called to on the way into work. The BBC has an article on it. We spent pretty much all day trudging through fields looking for this chap, but […]
