I’m on day 2 of completely reformatting and reinstalling software on the computers in our lab at Waldorf. I’m on my final computer, and tomorrow get to move to a new room and continue doing the same for 3 more computers. And it has led me to a few things I’m excited for….
-OSx Lion – hopefully a nice smooth transition
-Software that isn’t disc based – installing from files on a server is handy
-A way to move computer settings from machine to machine to ultimately save me 3-5 minutes per computer.
I also got the privilege to choose the new computer theme for the lab… 3 years ago, the lab was changed from each machine being names after 1 of the 12 apostles to 12 different Dr. Suess characters. This year, I chose something near and dear to my heart…. Star Wars. Each machine is named after a planet in the Star Wars solar system. The instructors computer – the Death Star. My laptop will also be receiving a name to coincide with the theme – Naboo.
