Fujitsu intros 11in notebook-not-netbook

Thumb Up

Looks promising

I think I'll seriously be considering the core 2 one of these. Fell in love with Fujitsu systems since my latest (but no so current) S7020, best laptop I've ever had, runs Win7 like a dream so I'll seriously be considering them for future purchases

Cambridge hospital cleans up after mystery malware infection

Robert Fitzgerald

Related issue?

Don't know if it's related or not but I also work in another hospital on IT support and we have recently had a call about visitors to a healthcare website Healthcare Innovation Expo who were being infected with malware, possibly due to the site being hijacked. Luckily the security systems here blocked it before it spread to other machines.

University emails 'blocked from Hotmail'

Robert Fitzgerald

NHS too?

Hotmail are also currently blocking emails from National Health Service in the UK so doctors are unable to send emails to their patients who use Hotmail addresses

Hard drive replacement sparks singed disk situation

Another Maxtor in my case

I see another user above had this problem with a Maxtor drive...

This also happened to me about 4 years ago with a brand new 120gb Maxtor drive, luckily it was replaced next working day by the website I ordered it from and luckily didn't cause any damage to any other components.

And in addition to my previous comment...

When this happened to me with the Maxtor drive, it wasn't a heat problem as it happened straight away when I turned the PC on so it couldn't have got hot in that time, I'm thinking it may have been a problem with the controller circuit or the motor.

MasterCard caught with pants down twice

Quite a few shops were having problems, but didn't know it...

I wondered why I couldn't buy my usual load of junk food from Woolworths :-)

My Solo card was working fine in the cash machines on Saturday but it seems that a lot of shops I went in were having problems, although they didn't know anything was wrong.

Hospital's brand new '£1m' server room goes up in smoke

Robert Fitzgerald

Cowboys?

I work for the NHS doing 2nd line desktop support based at The Causeway in West Sussex.

I visit the server rooms hereon a daily basis to do various tasks, backups, patching ports etc.

All the server rooms I have had to visit so far have had very efficient cooling, most of them at least 3 air conditioning units. Although they do run a few servers with the covers off so air flow on those particular ones probably isn't too great, but it's within safe levels.

In our office we often joke about our colleagues being cowboys for whatever reason but we do a job and we do it well. Do the guy's at St. James's actually employ professional cowboys? It makes you wonder.
