maintenance tonight [Jan. 22nd, 2009|03:53 pm]

God I hate these. Stay up waay too late (probably 4AMish tonight), move a bunch of configs around, expect half the customers to fail to come back up after they've been moved, then back to work the next day and deal with a dozen complaints, internal and external, about how I Did It Wrong.

the job would be easier without all those damned customers bitching and moaning all the time.

I'm there with you, man, I have to upgrade code on 11 cards tomorrow night between 1 and 3am since that's the only window the customer would give us..

Tell me about it: I spent the weekend patching about a hundred Windows servers, no one ever appreciates the work, everyone bitches and at the end you wonder why you bothered in the first place to be "proactive"

On a lighter note, how was the fun fair last weekend?

cabin fever was ok. drove up on Sat. morning, stopped off at a brewpub where I had some overcooked fish and chips, continued on to the show. Got a lot of cards and catalogs, but only bought some blackening solution for ferrous metals. I only ran into one person I knew, Chris Daniels (Thalx). Drove back. Pretty uneventful.
