I haven't been to bed yet and it's 6:30am on a Friday morning. In the past week or so I've pulled 2.5 more all nighters than I have in the previous 6 months. Why you ask? Most recently because of Dell PowerVault. 5 minutes after my "It's Alive" posting, I checked my email, only to find that the Exchange Server was toast. Loading a server's Disk Management utility and seeing NINE drives marked as failed is a scary sight. Especially when you are in charge of implementing the Backup Policy. This morning I am praising NetBackup like you wouldn't believe. It was a long night, but it's amazing how satisfying it can be to fix things sometimes. Thankfully this happened before the long weekend, rather than during it.
It actually worked out pretty well, I was trying to figure a way out where I could sneak off early to the island. Looks like I won't have to go in to work today.
