Today is the last day of over 15 years of duty guard. The official termination is from 31/12, but my last duty guard period for the old company ended this day.
Not with a bang, but with a whisper…
I expect there will be piece and quiet, at least until 1/1, or however soon the new company discovers they need this service too.
At least I can look forward to a long I disturbed Christmas and New Years vacation with no obligation to attend phone or check mail (beyond just for the fun of it) !
Tomorrow I’m off for Oslo (too early really, leaving at 05.30) and first of all a quick status update on migrations, but after that the real reason for the visit is a full day workshop and meetings on Identity & Access Management. Last session ends at 19.00, I believe the day will feel absolutely crammed.
I’m hearing every now and then people mentioning that I have a blog.
I find it quite amusing to see the same people be so surprised that someone actually uses all the new collaborative technology that we have purchased and built.
I guess I sometime should tell them I don’t really have one blog, that one’s really only rarely used. I actually have four, and two retired, plus one semi-active wiki, two half-and-half abandoned discussion forums, and a few others servers on top of that. I’m really trying to consolidate, whenever I have some spare time over of my free time, which is actually very seldom considering the kids, the family and the photography.
But someday I will succeed…
Saturday evening. Cup of tea, some emails, and scome scribbling in OneNote.
It is really a great tool, but I’m still not entirely comfortable with the instant saving and there being no “Save”-button. I guess old habits die hard. 🙂
We were out with some friends to Arkilds Tingstad and watched the sunset.Three families, five small kids, and water… Not really the peaceful harmony that the photo hints of.
1st of November today. 15 days left to “Big-bang” migration (also known as D-Day to some) but more importantly only 1,5 months until vacation.
I really look forward to this (the latter), I should maybe check up if I can take out more vacation and earlier as I’m starting to feel quite worn out.
Google has published some quite nice pictures of their datacenter.Extremely structured and well-ordered, almost so they seem on the edge of Photoshopped. But cool pictures regardless.
