First of all, happy birthday to one of my dear faraway sweethearts, maedbh7! *hugs and kisses*
Thanks to everyone for the hugs and well wishes on Tuesday. The day really did get better after lunch, and by the time I got home I was feeling pretty human.
Spent the evening installing the new PSU I bought to replace the suspected bad one which had rendered my computer dead. I was gratified that after swapping them out and connecting everything up, that it sprang back to life as if noting happened. Yay!
Wednesday did turn out to be a better day, despite having to get up very very early to move a couple of servers from our office to the NOC. See, now that we’re pretty much entirely hosting our services over there, there’s no need to spend thousands of dollars on a 45mb/s DS3 pipe to this building, but we did still have two machines over here that needed to be over there. Due to coordination required on the second of these, we moved the first one at 7am, and the second one at 10:30am. Fortunately, neither causes any sort of customer outage, so we didn’t have to rush about madly trying to minimize the downtime (if they had, it’d likely have been a 3am sort of thing).
After work, which ended a little early thanks to the early start, I drove over to Athens to collect khaosworks, who is staying with us for a couple of days until he flies to England en route to Singapore for the summer. We got back to Alpharetta about 6:30, waited for kitanzi to get home, and then went to dinner at Roadhouse Grill.
When we got home, we settled down to watch the first episode of Season 4 of Coupling, which Terence had downloaded from USENET. (May I pause here to say, simply, I *love* the Internet?). There’s a new character to fill the absence left by the departure of Richard Coyle, which is unfortunate, but we’ll see how he turns out. This wasn’t the best episode of Coupling ever ever, but it was very funny and we enjoyed it quite a lot.
Today is being a slightly quiet and I consider this a good thing.
