Day 3 of the Break From Work. It is monday, even if I haven't slept yet so it's still theoretically Sunday.
For those not in the know, I'm having this week off work. Why? cause I want to. I really wanted last week but that would have made me miss out on all the prep time for our disaster recovery test on saturday. so it's next week. last week would have been better. 'cept for the fact that I'm not actually working on Tuesday. almost. there's a meeting I really should be at. *sigh* the /one/ day when i should be nowhere near work, and I am.
saturday's server maintenaince went well. the only unusual part was when our Cisco 6000 router module decided to not accept the firmware update and didn't come back up. so it got an unscheduled disaster recovery test. which worked. we spent more time finding the right serial cable (amongst the plethora of serial console cables we have) than reloading the firmware.
the disaster recover test however, ran way overtime. My job was recovering the internal web server. We decided to do it differently from how we would normally do it, so we could work out the dependencies of all the webstuff we have installed on that (the dude who set it all up has been bludging in Sydney for the past 6 months) so I was there until 7 poking the webserver, gradually losing my mind and gaining a migraine.
at 7, I went Fuckit! we'd do a filesystem recovery now, and went home. I still say yay for firewire and not actually touching the original disk in the webserver, so rollback was simply 'set the original MacHD as the boot volume' and bob's someone else's uncle.
migraine bad enough that I crashed into bed upon arriving home and managed to miss both caitlen
's farewell drinks and arkem
's 21st. More than a little bit peeved was I at 0230 when I woke up for 2 minutes, realised there was no point being awake and promptly fell asleep again, headache still with me.
Sunday morning, putting my gear into bags for heading down to training I discovered that a certain small black fuzzy thing had decided that the aromatics of my hakama were substandard. So she enhanced them. Liquidly. Livid. Livid. Livid.
and I couldn't de-aromify my hakama before training. so i smelt like a cat urinal all morning. Kill! Stab! hurt! maim destroy.
something's up if she's peeing in random places like that.
Plans for the upcoming week of slackness:
clear the pool table.
not crash either of the above
count my bills and input them into the cash tracking mumbu jumbo
complete learning my Horatio lines for dormant_dragon
's last scenes of Hamlet
other random stuff
yeah, all that in a week?
