Life at a startup is great, but it takes some adjusting.


Like if something goes wrong, or doesn't work the way you like, you fix it.  Having dealt with large companies for a decade I had gotten used to the bureaucracy involved in making project or company wide decisions or changes.  When it's possible to get the entire company together around a conference table things are a lot easier.  Of course that lack of bureaucracy also means if you want something done it's pretty much your responsibility.  Quite a refreshing change either way.  It just leads to long hours since there's so much to do and so little time.

At least the weather is turning nice.  In two weeks my weekends start getting devoted to the family business.  Hopefully it stays warmer that usual and we won't freeze working on the water in March.

For my brothers in the hood with NFS lock problems.

Hell, the only reason I have time to post is the NFS shared lock file problem.  Have to wait until a long running job finishes before they can restart NFS.  So I'm glad to I'm not the only one spinning my wheels.

is there a good alternative to NFS?  One that will use and obey all of the unixy permissions?

Samba is great for windows, but I dont think it carries the unixy permission crap over the wire.

That or we both suck at configuring NFS :-)

IAWTP, except the part about leading to long hours. Here's how to avoid long hours: Leave at 5:00. If you have to step on the CEO's face to get out the door, do it.
