More Hurry Up and Wait

I get to spend today waiting for a fellow in Toronto to call me back while he tries to figure out what the cryptic diagostic message his system is throwing means.  This does not make me overjoyed.

I pulled a 18 hour shift last night from 6 am to nearly midnight.  Go fuck yourself.

I see.  You're the one who fucked this up, aren't you?

A power spike during a cutover to UPS (for a monthly test) fucked our Sybase box.  Much badness.

Yes, that does lead to much badness.

Especially when 6 hours of processing on a destabilizing database follows before anyone realizes.

Failover tests causes failover. This happens much more often than anyone successfully fails over, doesn't it?

You need to test the consequences thoroughly ...

What's the odds of an electritian borking the main powerboard while installing a new UPS? It has happened.

A big chunk of downtown was w/out power a couple weeks ago because construction workers cut the backup cablee while the main supply was being worked on.

A week ago some other construction workers ran a grounding rod through a big telco cable, cutting off the main hospital, ambulance dispatch, and a ton of businesses.  Took a few days to get all the businesses going again.
