[ mood | stressed ]

12:27 AM. Been at work for just under 12 hours now. This has by far been the worst OS upgrade I've had to do on an AS/400. What a PITA.

My stress is compounded by having been out of town all week (3 days in Ft Myers, 2 in Jacksonville) training people.

Oh, and let's not forget the surprise hail storm Tuesday night that knocked out power to our building all night. Had to get up at 5 AM on Wednesday to walk someone through powering up the systems and network so I could get in remotely and bring everything up by the time we opened.

Due to unforseen difficulties with this upgrade, I'll be here at least 4 more hours tonight (this morning). And possibly several hours longer.

I'm tired.

Don't you hate it when you're trying to apply PTFs and the optical drive isn't responding. So you IPL TWICE, only to realize it just was varied off after the update (only God knows why?)!

20 hours and counting. I don't think I'll have any more issues. Just going to finish applying these PTFs (2-4 hours) and save the hardware upgrades for tomorrow night.

I hope I'm able to drive home safely. I can hardly keep my eyes open.
