So we have Ninite One implemented at most of our client locations. It is so convenient because it automatically keeps workstations up to date with the basic things like Java, Flash, etc.

The way it is normally set is to download any updates to the server then have the workstations pull the files from there, thus saving bandwidth.

Well our intern missed that setting during setup...now we have 120 workstations downloading all these updates individually...

Along with this post is the bandwidth usage from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm...at 2:30 the downloads kicked off. As you can see, bandwidth usage has essentially quadrupled since then.

The blue is HTTP traffic coming from various sources downloading updates for things like Java and the like. The purple is all Adobe traffic once Ninite got to the adobe updates.

They are going to have a slow afternoon.

I've told everyone and I can't help but to think about it.

My plane leaves around noon on Wednesday, so I should be in NY by 2 at the latest. Pickup is at noon. Flight out of NY is at 8. Arriving and departing from LaGuardia.

Should be exciting.

Business Class = so much leg room

A comfortable flight flight to get Glass is a happy flight.

Thanks +John Bowdre for the correction.

I don't know who is more excited about me getting glass. Me, or the people at the University who never thought they would get to see it in person.

The entire class they couldn't stop talking about how excited they were to see it and perhaps take a picture of themselves to show everyone.

I am getting more excited by the minute. Only have to wait until Thursday!

Story
Introduction
I am Brandon King.

I'm into a variety of things. Mostly computers, mobile computing (especially android), bicycling, and lots of gaming (not just video games).

I'm really into board games (lot's of complicated ones. not lame things like Life) and tabletop RPGs such as D&D and Warhammer. I play a fair amount of video games, mostly Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike, and The Elder Scrolls Series are my consistent games.

I like to have fun with whatever I'm doing, including work (as long as that work is getting done).

I joke around with people. I don't think a world without people joking around would be a happy place at all.
 
When I'm not doing something fun I'm pretty much working.

I've been working in IT for the past 5 years doing system administration, networking, and helpdesk.

I am studying Computer Information Systems at the University of Akron with emphasis on networking and sysadmin stuffs to broaden my knowledge base.
