Monthly Archives: September 2012

Tap-tap-tap… is this thing on?

*blink* *blink* Wait, what?  It’s September? Can’t be! 

But… you’re telling me it’s the end of September? Stop joking around, that’s not funny! 

…waaaait, where did all those students come from?

So yeah, joking aside, it’s been a while.  I’ve been neck-deep in LDAP server migration stuff for way too long.  The migration scripts I thought would just take a couple of weeks actually took a lot longer than that, but at least they’re working now. Any new users, or changed to existing users, are now copied nightly to the new servers.  Same with groups.  And I just figured out a way to make the user script a lot more efficient; it used to take like half an hour and now it’s down to three minutes and change, so we’ll be able to run it more often.  I’m tempted to do the same with groups, but it’s already not very long so I’m not sure if it’s worth it.

That’s all for now.  I still can’t believe we’re almost to October!
