Much Quieter Day
Posted in Tech
First dog watch, 1 bell (4:38 pm)

Today was much quieter than yesterday. Despite the fact that I didn't get to sleep this morning until well after 2:30am and I was awake before 7:30am, it wasn't such a bad day. I spent a good part of the day in debriefing mode, starting with some early phone calls with our service provider. I talked to Norm again, and explained the whole thing to several people around the office.

I was disappointed at 5:30 this morning when I tried calling the office that our lines were still down, but I knew John (my IT minion) would take care of it. We ended up forwarding all calls to the VP's cell phone (I'm sure AT&T appreciated that), he averaged more than a call per minute, but it was only a half hour or so before we were back up completely.

I really tried to get a little more sleep, but it just didn't happen. I'm bad enough once I wake up, it's hard for me to just go back to sleep. When I have a big problem like this hanging over my head it's just that much worse.

But thankfully everything was quiet today. Well, except for the phones—they're ringing again!
