My name is Claudio Miranda and I'm a Microsystems
Technician at Shenandoah, Silver Bluff, and F.S. Tucker Elementary. I'm
just a measly ol' computer tech with a cool sounding title. :-)
As a Microsystems Tech, I deal with the maintenance of computers in each of my schools. I plan on setting up and administering networks in each of the schools I work at so they can be at the "bleeding edge" of technology.
Although only 2 of the schools have access already through the Miami-Dade County Public Schools wide-area network, I would like to implement it at Silver Bluff Elementary. One day, I hope to have all three schools communicating with each other through e-mail and (God willing) video conferencing, as well as sharing information and resources.
Well, a lot has taken place since I last posted this page. At Silver Bluff, we were given the go-ahead to purchase a slew of PCs and peripherals for the media center and our new computer lab. Base units comprise of Dell Optiplex Series PCs with 350 MHz Pentium II processors, a lot of hard drive space, and GOBS of memory (A few others have up to 400 MHz Pentium II CPUs). We may also be getting a T1 connection to the M-DCPS wide area network, which would give us high-speed access to the Internet as well as the ability to communicate with other schools in the county. This, however, is still under consideration so keep your fingers crossed! :-)
We have received the new shipment of Dells that we ordered. Along with that, we also received a server-type PC (which I had requested, but forgot that I had done so.....so silly! heh) for future possibilities. Now comes the ever FUN task of doing property control tagging on them. (Can you hear the cheering? No? I'm not surprised, either...)
As for the T1, that's still under consideration.
(And it may stay that way "indefinitely." <sigh>...) Keep
on keepin' those fingers crossed... (Hey you....yeah, you
behind that 'puter... I SEE YOU!! CROSS 'EM FINGERS NOW!!!!)

It's very hot in Miami, Florida. The temperature often reaches 98 degrees during the summer. (...on a good day!) And now we have the fun of all those hurricane-class storms!!! Don't you just wish you were here??? ;-)
