Yikes! I thought today would be fairly normal, I was wrong haha. I was remarkably busy this morning and just got free-ish now.
First off last night Everett did a very poor job sleeping lol. He was up quite a bit, which does not help mommy and daddy at all. I have been dragging all day. Topping that off with a bit of chest congestion, and I’m having a heck of a day.
This morning I had to reach out to a different plumber to see if they would respond to my requests. I tried two different times a week apart to schedule an appointment with the old plumber to fix my sewer main and they have yet to call me back! They must really not want my two grand, weird. I have a new appointment with another plumber this Thursday for them to look at it, only to tell me the same thing I’m sure. From there I will see what they quote us and go from there. I hope they actually help. I’m sort of dumbfounded by that whole thing. I mean for real, I was contacting them to give them my own money and they just never got a hold of me?!? Oh well.
The rest of this morning was spent working on anti-virus threats and weird PC issues. On a similar yet different note, yesterday we received our new rack! At our company we have switches in multiple spots throughout the plant, They are just exposed wall mounted racks up on a wall. They get dusty and dirty quickly. Well yesterday we got the first piece in fixing that, well at least at one spot haha.
As you can see we have the old dirty wall mount on the left and the new 38U rack on the right. By no means will we fill that cabinet with networking gear but we wanted it to all be eye level. It is fully enclosed and is mounted with six exhaust fans at the top. We will mount the battery backup at the bottom to spread out the heat distribution, and the rest at eye level, to be easily worked on. This is a tough task. All of those gross cables will need to go back in the same spots and everything has to remain the same when we move it all. On top of that it has to happen on a Saturday, because we have people that work every shift and this would take the whole west end out of commission. That is fine with me though because I’ll be able to claim some overtime, which may come in time to pay off some of that incoming debt haha.
The rest of the afternoon I’ll be answering whatever questions come my way. I also bought a fire escape ladder today, since my wife had a bad dream about our house catching on fire. This being followed by the realization of not really having a fire plan yet. So the need is there and it could be immediate, so I got one! 😀
That is all from me today, I hope you have a great Tuesday. I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
