BD3... - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
Today is the big day...

At 3 o'clock the first submission to corporate using the new CIIS bridge should take place. The last 4 or 5 months work will be judged on the smoothness of this transmission. We are not running to time.

There is a comfortable amount of slack built into the procedure. Head Office don't really need the file until 3 o'clock their time (20:00 GMT) so we have 5 hours of slack... except I would really like to get away on time tonight.

The data quality checks are looking good so far. Dave and I have spent a lot of the last week making sure our pre loaded data is right. We have also spent most of yesterday and this morning making sure the data the LEC's have supplied looks correct. Oracle seems to have gone into a sulk and reports are taking 3 times as long as usual.

I have been in work an hour early every day except Tuesday this week... and left at least an hour late. I will be in early tomorrow for BD4 and my BAU tasks, and Monday for the Ampere feed adjustments. After that I believe I shall work 5 hour days for the remainder of the week.

Mr Twinks bit me last night. It's the first time he has bitten me and drawn blood. We are currently not on speaking terms and he didn't pounce on me as soon as I went to bed. He knows he's a bad one.

I played football yesterday and I'm all achy today. It was good to get out and run about in the crisp air... but a bit of a shame as I let in the winning goal (for the other side) just seconds before the end of the game. Final score 5-4 to them.

Current Mood: tired tired
