He tasks me, this one...

So, for the third day in a row I have been troubleshooting stuff at a site that isn't mine. I had to leave my small group on Sunday, after I just got there, to head an hour north to Libertyville to work on resolving a network issue (spanning tree for those geeks out there). We finally left at 12:30 am, meaning I got home about 1:30, and in bed about 2.

I got into work a little late, because I was working on my 24 hour goals in the morning. I got in about 9:30. At about 10, my boss called and said they were having still more problems in Libertyville and would Samantha and I get in the car and drive the half hour to get up there? So we did. Samantha and I had diagnosed the problem in the car, but it took us 1.5 hours once we got there to do the political maneuvering to get people to look at it. ugh.

We finally left there at 4 pm, meaning everything I wanted to do during the day at work was pretty much shot; I went straight home.

Yesterday, I was on conference calls from 8 am until 4 pm -- including the post mortem for the outages sunday and monday. Plus I had to do salary planning. Lovely. Fun. Thrilling. We do not have enough money to go around and there are policies out that will make things even more fun when April rolls around.

Of course, guess what we find out at 4 pm? You got it, more problems at Libertyville. I spend 4 hours diagnosing this as well. Turns out someone installed the wrong fiber in one portion, and you have to have the same type all the way through, or it doesn't work!

Anyway, I'm now going to vacuum my family room, and then head into work.


  • Tired.

    Being in the office at 8:30 am means getting up at 5 because I hate traffic and traffic starts at 6:30. Wah. But I did get more Caribou. YOMS.
