I haven’t been able to update my blog lately because of my life lately. So, so busy. For instance, today started at 2am. Luckily I was able to work from home. 2 hours on the phone doing some maintenance work in Tacoma Washington. Then back to bed for a couple hours. Then off to work. As soon as I arrived… you guessed it, trouble in Tacoma. No one can print. Was it related to our maintenance work, you bet it was. One hour to diagnose and fix that problem. Before I even got done more calls started coming in. We’re having DNS issues. Two hours to track down and fix that problem. Then back to Tacoma, they would like a new wireless access point installed. 30 minutes for that. Some paperwork. Set up a virtual com port for our virtual VAX running on a virtual server. An hour for that. Two servers are way behind on security patches. One more hour for that. Throw in a lunch break and a few meetings and the day was done.
No it wasn’t, just before I leave there is trouble on a switch in Olympia Washington. It took 4 hours, working with local support up there to get yesterdays config loaded onto the switch.
Then the day was FINALLY over at 7:30pm.
Anyone see why I like to fly?
