After having a short weekend in the beauty of nature, I now find myself up the ass of a server. My company is going through a huge system switch, which includes a server change (from an IBM Netfinity to a Dell PE 2600). This cutover affects everything from sales to operations, so it's a very big deal. My job is to ensure all systems are functional between the cutover and after, so that means that I have to be at all my centers the day before and after. I have 7 centers, and 4 offsites that I service. If you do the math for this week, it calculates to shitload of overtime. Well, one the servers went down at my site here in Campbell and I have been spending the last 24 hours trying to get it functioning for tonight's cutover. It MUST be working in order to do a information migration. I am at the tale end of this issue (thank goodness), but still have quite a long day ahead of me. I actually am waiting for Server Support to finish stuff on their end at the moment, so I have a sort of break.
I have been working since Sunday night, basically just breaking to eat and sleep, and it's gonna be that way until Friday. I will have my social life back and hopefully there will be some surfing involved. I've been a total hermit turning down invites from friends to hangout or have dinner. I'll come back out of my world of wires and data drops soon.
