As an astrophysicist by joh3n (4.00 / 2) #1 Fri Feb 29, 2008 at 06:25:04 AM EST
I take serious offense to your diary.  We astrophysicists are much more attractive than those pathetic atomic physicists, and thus it is WE whom the mental midgets should aspire to.

Tut-tut!

Oh! My brother! It's the same everywhere. by greyrat (4.00 / 1) #2 Fri Feb 29, 2008 at 06:41:13 AM EST
Even at the fast food joints. That's why we have Internet radio and headphones. And sweet creamy rum to drink every night when we get home...

It's unplanned if the warning time is less than by notafurry (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Feb 29, 2008 at 07:22:40 AM EST
the one specified by the SLA or OLA.

e.g. our SLA says our customers will have a week's warning before downtime. If there's an emergency need - system failure that requires immediate replacement and for some reason it'll require downtime, or an emergency security patch, or whatever - we have a process we have to follow for it, and the customers get notified of "emergency unplanned work" even though it's not, strictly speaking, unplanned.

Man... by Breaker (4.00 / 2) #7 Fri Feb 29, 2008 at 11:07:42 AM EST
I thought we were about to read about some ReallyEvilPuppies on the way there.

Luckily, it's just corporate fucktitude. 


We had a power cut today by Rogerborg (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri Feb 29, 2008 at 11:40:59 AM EST
When the power came back on, we then sat through another outage as IT finally got around to plugging all our server hardware into the UPS that they installed 6 months ago.

When the network came back up, they were publicly thanked for the speed with which they performed the repluggination.

I'm lucky.  Our support group has some directors who are storm troopers about that stuff.  IT sends out and e-mail and they're all over their asses.  They did it enough to where once in a while IT actually thinks before they do stuff.  Still not perfect when it comes to OUR tools but at least the customer facing stuff isn't crapped on.
