Its my on-call week, and its been a killer so far.

At the moment, I’ve got a guy on-site transferring a new IOS image to a Cisco Router (which is long looong past its End of Life date), over a Serial cable with XModem. This is going to take a while (its 1am).

Last night, I was up from 00:30 until 03:00 trying to figure out why a router dropped off the network. Only to be told this morning that it was due to planned works being carried out by a 3rd-party. Oops, we forgot to tell you.

So, I’m cranky, sleep deprived, and can barely focus on my screen. But thats fine, I’m only oncall until Friday.
