I got woken up this morning after just two to three hours of sleep to a page that I had a server down. I get this often on the weekends and don’t worry about it too much. Normally it takes less than an hour of my time and is not a big deal to get working.
This outage was not like that. I ended up working a twenty one hour day trying to get this server back up and running. It was an exhausting day. I did nothing but work, I even worked through lunch. I never went into the office as there was never any time for that.
Once there was little that I could do this evening and since I had been working all day and hadn’t even gotten in a shower, after the kids went to bed I showered and headed out to grab dinner at Redneck as I knew that I would get paged out quite a bit tonight, and I did. I was paged out over and over till one in the morning or so. So it was very late when I finally managed to get to bed. Tomorrow is going to be a long day as there is no end in sight for the outage.
