Ice Bear

(no subject)

So, how would you rather spend your Sunday?

A) Sleep in till you wake up by yourself. Have a good tasty and nutritionally sound breakfast followed by a day of relaxation (In whichever way you enjoy)..

Or

B) Get woken up at 10:45 because some idiot user can't be bothered to read e-mails from IT saying that his server will be down for a day or so.
Then get a call 30 minutes later saying that users can't connect to another server.
Go have a look. Realise with that special sinking feeling that tells you it isn't gonna be a good day that the drive which contains all the mailboxes is gone... Ooops...
Fix that, get a new error message, fix that, get a new error message amd so on for the next 3 or 4 hours.
I was slightly annoyed by this point. Especially when it got past 15:15 and I knew that there was no way I was going to get to viking training today :'(
Anyway, it seemed that for some reason (And I'm not going to bother investigating that now) the cluster tried to failover during the night, but failed (Oh how ironic are these technical terms?)...
Oh well, 5 hours of Sunday overtime pay is not to be sniffed at :-D Just a shame I have to wait a month and a half to get it...
And it's nice to be able to sit at home and do it so I can at least listen to reasonably good music...
