Today I am lamenting my new 10 hour workdays. Yesterday, however, I was still enjoying my new 3-day weekends. All in all, it's a win.

Beats ten hour workdays and one-day weekends, which is where I'm at lately.
Fortunately, I bill by the hour.

Today I:

* Fixed a file that I had left out of a previous change request, committed it to source control, tagged it up and wrote a change request to deploy it.
* Submitted said change request to our ops team, who work for an external company.
* Got assigned to fix a problem with a content management system not publishing. This particular CMS feeds into creating quizzes that are shown on the red button data service on BBC channels on UK TV.
* Went over and talked to central editorial to diagnose the problem.
* Created a fix for said problem.. it was because we had switched off a tomcat instance on our live servers as we thought it wasn't necessary anymore. Turns out we were wrong.
* Got into a load of trouble for suggesting that maybe it was the ops team who suggested we remove said tomcat instance (they did).
* Committed a bunch of files to source control (CVS and SVN) and edited another change request that is part of the main project I'm working on. (A change request is a bunch of linux commands that walk through step by step how to pull down the source files for a fix or patch, install them, and then restart any services that need restarting).
* Answered some questions from the contractor I'm working with, tried to help him with a problem but it was a bit out of my league.
* Went home.

:sleep1:

Since coming home from work I have:

* Had a very tasty dinner prepared by my marvellous girlfriend
* Did some C++ coding. Finally got annoyed enough with Netbeans to move to Visual Studio Express.
* Imported the project into VSE, and eventually got it to compile.

Today I came to work wet from the storm. I've finished the first half of my current project and moving on to the last half.

Let's see... today I am finishing up a project running about 400ft of 24 strand fiber optic cable through a manhole system. Yesterday I finished fusion splicing that 24 strand into a 144 strand and today I am simply tipping the other side with SC connectors. Easy day.

Well... I'm working on an OS. I have just designed the basic kernel of it. It'll be like a Quad-Core Kernel, with 4 different parts working independently so that we get the maximum speed from the software part. Now I'm working with it's coding part! :D

I'm working on losing my mind. The webmistress is in high demand today!

Later, I have a couple meetings for some fun new projects... web app/mobile app stuff. There's not much in life better than writing actual code... and it is a welcome distraction from the standard website maintenance/content updates I'm usually dealing with. :bananaman:

Concerned about the location of my wallet. This could get annoying.

Missing wallet, keys, and sunglasses are three things that I have no sense of humor about, and I can find no peace until they are found.

Missing keys are a full-on crisis situation. Anything else, I can handle.

Upon returning from lunch, I answered a frantic phone call from my boss, "LINDA! I've been trying for an hour to post to this thing and nothing is working! Please tell me you have a free minute to stop down!" Of course I have a free minute.... she's my boss. I don't tell her no.

I packed up my essentials and hoofed it across campus where she sat in her office with a wide-eyed expression of panic.

"Ok," she explained, "I typed all this stuff in this little box, right? And now I can't find a way to make it go on the page. I've been looking all over for an hour. I even had Mildred [the 80-year-old secretary] over here to help. How do I make it go?!"

She slid her chair back, gestured to the computer and said, "Work your magic!"

I walked around her desk, looked at the screen, pressed enter and walked away.

She was trying to comment on a Facebook status and couldn't find a 'Submit' button.
