Winding down the year…

Roughly two weeks left in 2018; what a ride.

Next week starts the big vacation period here at work — no one will be here, which is always nice as it means I can get some real work done without interruptions.

I.T. always does its best work when the rest of the company is off partying, mostly because we can turn things off without people panicking.

Which shows the dichotomy in job descriptions; if I need information from a project manager or one of the sales drones it might take a week to hear back, if I hear back at all. Meanwhile if one of my file servers is down for 30 seconds it's curtains for the free world, cats and dogs begin to cohabitate, and I have a line of torches and pitchforks in front of my office…

I guess it's nice to be needed. 😀
