I'll be out of pocket again today, as we are on day two of physically moving a set of development servers to a another location in the metroplex:

  • Fujitsu PrimePower 600

  • Fujitsu PrimePower 600

  • SunFire V880

  • SunFire V880

  • SunFire V880

  • Sun Enterprise 6500

  • EMC CX600



With catttitude now working, the logistics of such projects present a difficulty all their own. I'd like to thank everyone who helped out in this regard: jesskd26, onthetrails's wife, and of course, catttitude herself.

One of these days, I too will be an Unix SysAdmin just like you. Looks fun!

About that...the guy, who I told you moved from Tech Support to Sys Admin after becoming Sun Certified? Yeah - that wasn't handed to him. He went out, spent his own money on the Solaris I & II course (at about $1500 each) and taught himself everything he could about unix before, during, and after.

That's a lot of drive, and you really haven't shown that kind of enthusiasm to anything unless you think you're going to be paid, and even then you half-ass it.

Anyway, his name is ximo, and he rocks the free world.

And cold. Very cold in the data center.

You get to do all the fun things, don't you?!

I always liked hanging out in the computer room with you. ;)

I enjoyed watching you perform your telephony dance.

We got to do a lot of telephony dancing that's for sure.
I continue to do still...it's just not as fun! :(

I'm running through these racks like Gene Kelly singing my heart out. It's really starting to piss off drax0r and who likely have another six hours ahead of us!

I love it! :)

In another six hours he'll probably be doing it too!

Now I'm singing TOM JONES on the conference call:

With THESE HANDS I will sing to you

How about "She's A Lady"? My favorite Tom Jones song.
Of course, it'd be better if you wore the pink hat. :)
