Today, I pushed through some paperwork for a server migration I’ll be doing this weekend. Tweaked dns, tweaked cong files, etc etc.
Monitored Stephen Fry’s cluster closely whilst he was live-streaming a talk about social networking. Pretty much it.
Today, I, tweaked a domain name, helped talk a customer into upgrading, changed a few passwords, advised a user on a script I helped write, to add apache vhost, user, email, mysql db & user to a server and closed a few support tickets. Oh, and talked to a customer who is leaving. Fun fun.
Note to self, when cutting up chillies, loose the seeds.
Fun tweets today (sorry if you follow me on twitter!)
- Dear customer. Please don’t complain that we’re rubbish, when you break your own email clients! We can’t control your computers! :/
- Thank you psudo-random password generator. No, I’m not going to send this to a female customer: hei9deer
- Pens! Why do they randomly appear on my desk? I swear, I only had one at the start of the week, now I have 3 :/ (Apparently I’m stealing them from James and Paul. Bonus points to whomever can explain how they flew over the atlantic from James’s desk 😉 )
Pretty much that. Today, nothing happened, had no thoughts on interesting blog posts. See, told you there’d be filler!
Tech-support. Normal normal. Tweaking config files. Restarting webservers. Nothing fun, nothing nasty 🙂
Ate the last of my toasted teacakes for lunch though 🙁
P.S. “The Cowsills – Hair” is just a strange track. My colleague suggested we listen to “The Beach Boys” on last.fm. This is one of the tracks that started playing..
