Because of my crazy work schedule this past week, I’ve found it pretty hard to post in the blog. If I’m not sleeping, I’m working, and if I’m not working, I’m playing City of Heroes to chill out (for mental health). So to recap a bit of this week…
Monday was Columbus Day and I had the day off. Shauna had to work, so Millard came over to play CoH. We played until like 9:00 pm or something crazy.
Tuesday was Hell on Earth. It was the first day that I was alone since Schunk got his new job. On top of the craziness of rolling the hectic Monday fervor into the day, I also leave early on Tuesdays, so I had to really crank to get everything done. Of course, like it knew Jon was gone, the phone reporting server took a big shit and I spent part of the day trying to get it working so I could print some reports.
Wednesday I went in at 7:30am and didn’t leave until around 9:00pm. Phone reporting server was back up, but then the database fucked up. I spent more then 4.5 hours trying to fix it, only to find out (of course) that there was about a five minute solution I could do to repair it.
Thursday was pretty decent. We’ve brought Joe on board to help out. He’s working on a contract basis, and helping out doing the mundane day-to-day user support stuff. If he works out, I’ll increase his level of security and allow him to do more server-related functions. Stayed till about 8:30pm.
Friday things went better. Joe was settling in a bit, and was able to tackle more support problems. We got three BSODs in the office, but we were able to track them down to a new Microsoft patch. Thanks Bill. The “usual” Friday night party at my place was a bit skewed, as Millard was up in St. Pete. for part of the day. Shauna and I went to Ci-Ci’s pizza and pigged-out, and as we were finishing, I got a call from Mil that he was just pulling into the driveway at my place. After I got home a few minutes later, Mil and I… guess, now!… we played CoH for a few hours.
Saturday was a de-stress/get some shit done day. Payed bills, clean the apartment up, etc.
And now to today… I’m gonna go get a friggin haircut as soon as the underwear in the dryer stops tumbling. After that… yep, you guessed it: CoH. I’ll fly solo today, tho. Unless, of course, Mil decides to swing by.
