New schedule

Yesterday I found out that I now get to work from 3am to 11am. Adjusting is hard, but I love the schedule - I get to concentrate on work (there's noone else in the whole building right now other than security guards), and I get to listen to loud music, and not only that - me and some coworkers threw a TV on this coax coming from the wall and it turns out we have full cable (except for premium stations and PPV) right at my desk (the only cable outlet on this floor) so I brought in my TV decoder card and spun up an old server to serve as the TV for my office, so I can watch CNN now :-)

In less than an hour the taliban clerics are holding a news confrence to say whether they are going to hand over bin laden to the US. Rumor is that they won't...

Heh, the nice part about 3am-11am is I can run errands while things are still open, Should I get a social life I sleep from 1-2p til 7-8p so I can hang out somewhere, and when everyone else is ready to go home I just go home and get ready for work. Even nicer is there's absolutely no traffic the whole way to work and there's TONS of parking so close to the building you'd think it was handicapped parking available, and I just work better at night anyway, so no complaints from me here :-)

Fortunately to my knowledge there's no such thing as a "temp" network operations engineer so I'm safe from those people - no temps, no customers for the most part, I just keep the whole show running while everyone else is asleep :-)

Oh, did I forget to mention no boss, no supervisors, no meetings that go on too long, etc? :-)
