Working weekends .... The return of the datagod
Who went to work on a Saturday? I did. I hate working on the weekends, mainly because I *need* the weekends to recover from the crap I go through at work. I had promised Whavy-Davy I'd be there by 10, but I lied. I was there by about 11. Luckily he hadn't been there long, so not all was lost. We cracked the Rec problem, and between his *amazing* memory for numbers, and my godlike data moving skills, we managed to get the Rec from 72,000+ items down to just over 4,000 items; in about 3 hours. *Damn* we're good ! Will we get any recognition for this? - Hell no! I made sure the bastards responsible for the cock-up, and both of the managers knew we'd been in today; I sent an email to Whavy, and copied the bastards in question, recapping where we was at (he had to leave just before me) and that in the half hour since he'd left - I'd only managed to knock a further 40 or so items, so I was calling it a day too. I then listed the stats of the files so they all knew that we'd started off with 72k, and we'd got them down to 4k, and that in the report we are supposed to write up about this failure of the system to make sure to include the problem was related to the database indexes going wrong in April (yup - this things been broken since April - and they only told us about it 3 weeks ago) and that in the future if we can be informed as soon as it goes wrong then we'll be able to fix it a lot quicker.
Hopefully the brown smelly stuff will have had time to hit the circular air flow device and settle before I get in Monday morning (the joys of getting in 2 hours after everyone else)
My back is still killing me slowly, and to add to that, my arm is stiff and sore from the grounders game yesterday. I feel like an old man.

Current Mood: old
Current Music: Gerry Rafferty - Take the money and run
