I have a busy day ahead tomorrow as the only domain controller for the main network died on Friday. It wasn’t mine to look after or take care of; the finance department is in charge of the network infrastructure, which means I am not to blame for it. It appears the controller card for the hard drives is faulty and from what I saw, it looks like the RAID 1 mirror became corrupt. We had good backups so no data was lost but a pain in the hind end when it happens though and now I have to catch up for Friday’s downtime.
I saw an article in the news that Doctor’s are using Google to diagnose diseases. Having worked in a hospital in the past, I can’t say I am surprised by this. When I worked there, I used to install programs for drug interactions. It allowed the pharmacy staff and doctors to see what drugs interact with others and help prevent giving a patient a bad mix of drugs. I think any tool which helps a doctor make a successful diagnosis is a good tool.
