ResCom #4: Operation

Easy

Next to ResCom in Redifer is a computer lab, but you’d be surprised to learn they are two separate businesses. ResCom is part of Housing and Food Services while the labs are part of IST- and the two don’t really mix.

ResCom #3: eMachines

Easy

There were policies at ResCom that prevented us from certain kinds of troubleshooting, mainly for liability reasons. One was backing up files which users had to do on their own. The other was handling warranty issues with manufacturers. We could call and gather facts but we couldn’t handle RMA’s or suggest places to purchase parts. One afternoon a student brought over his …

ResCom #2: Looper

Easy

My favorite ResCom story happens to be from my first call as a technician. First day on the job and I’m being shadowed by Adam, a senior tech (which was policy during training).

I’ve got a few good stories though I’m only going to share one. The other two are best told in person… The first begins with one of my best friends from home, Mr. Dawson Grau. I hadn’t spoken to him in a bit and one day last week I IMed him to see how he was doing. He said he …

The Gang’s All Here

I’m just happy to be alive after this past week or two. Between classes, tests, projects and the all-consuming Senior Film, things have been very hectic. Last weekend I didn’t do a single fun thing as it was our group’s turn to have the film equipment. We were up early and if I wasn’t at work I was on set …
