The reason I’m up so late was a near breakdown at work this evening. Obviously I’m not going to cover any real details here (both for my sake and the company’s), but a worse case scenario nearly was nearly realized. Fortunately Dell Tech Support really came through for me, and a complete rebuild was not necessary. Leading up to the solution, however, was sheer panic for me. I slowly saw my entire weekend being flushed down the crapper. In the end, however, everything worked out and I learned something new – including some better monitoring techniques.
And in case there was any doubt how amazing Lisa is, she came by with dinner for me and helped ease the tension. Now it’s finally time for bed.
