Beowabbit: PSA for New Year's Weekend 
30th-Dec-2010 05:38 pm
Misc: six-fingered hand
Hi, this is plumtreeblossom posting on behalf of beowabbit, who as we speak is dealing with a workplace computer emergency of biblical proportions (and it takes an atheist to fix that kind!). The problem is comprehensive enough that he and his colleagues may have their noses to the grindstone for the better part of the weekend. This is just a heads up for those who have scheduled plans with him or are looking forward to seeing him at parties -- he very much hopes he can still make everything he has planned, but for right now it's touch and go.

He began getting work emails and pings yesterday evening, and by midnight it was clear that he had no choice but to go into the office. Out into the snow he went, his cross-eyed-exhausted wuzzle sadly seeing him off and then expiring at the foot of the bed like a spaniel. He wasn't home again (home being my house) until late this morning for food and a crucial nap. At 4:00PM I made him a 2nd breakfast and back he went to the office. The details of the departmental computer system FUBAR are beyond my realm of intelligible descriptive ability, but in short, he's got a Cleanup on Aisle 4 like nobody's business.

Send him some love and encouragement if you can. And in case he doesn't get a chance to say it himself before the ball drops tomorrow, Happy New Year to All!

I'm guessing it has something to do with the market-savvy New Year release timing but poor network utilization planning plus tech support timing of "Who Gives A Tweet" which seems to be gaining in popularity?

Or perhaps something completely different. Either way, huge sympathy for this to happen during a holiday weekend. I remember being at my laptop for Y2K. Here's hoping everything gets figured out well-before the ball drops and you two get time together.

Unrelated, but yes, that was going on too. Whee!

I know things will get sorted out, and
hope it's sooner rather than later. First
a Delayed Christmas ... hope it doesn't
also effect the New Year. Work is the Wrong
reason to be at work and awake at Midnight
the 31st.

EEp - I'm sending Techie Support waves over *waves*. And thank _you_ for looking after him. Bully if necessary to make sure he gets some sleep.
