We made it, it is yet again another Friday. Yet again, another end to a tedious work week.
I did manage to get some excitement this morning. I got a text from our network admin here at work at about 7 am, saying that the internet was down for the whole company. If you aren’t sure what that means in the big picture I’ll explain. We still were able to work on internal projects, but anything that had to deal with other companies we couldn’t do. We did still have email since is it routed through another service, not hosted here on site. So, at 7 am I had to come in to find out what was wrong. It was a puzzle, I had to figure out what was stopping traffic and get it working again. This all while not having any coffee yet lol. From the information I was given it seemed to be the companies physical firewall., but when I came in it looked like it was operating just fine. I double checked what worked and didn’t work at my desk and went back into our server room. I noticed that our physical web filter was blinking a weird orange color and investigated. I came to the only conclusion that I could, I pulled the plug. I reset the web filter and everything instantly connected fr everyone. We then ran into a smaller, yet still significant, issue. We host mail relay on one of our services and even though everything was connected it still wasn’t relaying. This regarding things like when you go to scan something to yourself from a printer. We then got on the server where it was hosted and reset the service and we were able to watch all of the hung emails disappear. They were then being sent in real time and all was good in the world. Well at least, you know, where I work haha. Now that I have completely confused most of you and made you lose interest in this post, lets switch gears.
This weekend We are going to focus on moving our books from my parents house and over to ours. This will help my parents clear out the upstairs of their house, and get us a little bit more moved in. I think while we are there Saturday we will start a pile of things that can be donated or thrown out, and a pile of things that we still want and need to get moved at some point. It will be a long day and will be very boring. I don’t want to do it at all but it has to be done. Sunday is the big game, the Super Bowl. Again although my team isn’t in it it will still be fun to be with family and watch a football game. I’ll let you know how it is later.
I found out today that my bed frame, dresser, and end tables are being delivered to my house on Monday! I also bought the nightstands to match yesterday because they were back in stock. One more thing to add to my credit card bill haha. when it is all said and done we will have furnished the dining room, living room, the babies room, and our bed room. So in the grand scheme of things it will be worth it. We will furnish the attic and the other bedroom as we go along and use them more. We would also like to finish putting up the quarter round trim on all the floors on the second floor. I still have to measure the other rooms before I can do that completely. The list never gets shorter, it only changes haha.
I hope you have all had a good week, and have a great weekend. Let me know if you have any plans for the Super Bowl, I’d love to see what other people will be doing. Let me know who you will be routing for, or if you just want to see a good game. C-ya Monday! 😀 😀
