Coming Out the Other Side

... of a long, long night. I got in earlier in the night than I had to be, but I was able to talk to the other managers and sort out the seating arrangements and earn first crack at the food. =D Well, co-first.

But there was a flurry of activity at the beginning followed by a lot of waiting before another hurried rush of deployments and activations. And the biggest worry of the day? The dataload did take most of our release window but was making good progress the whole time. It wrapped up before we reached the critical "can we afford to wait any more" point. We did need a small extension but we were able to get things back up and running in the morning. There is a list of issues we still need to address, but I think all I am on the hook for now is to work out a schedule of on-call access for the month of June.

Phew. I am SO glad we had a large enough group of people involved to field everything. If we had not been able to divide and conquer so much, then the morning would have been a lot tougher.

So, scheduling, assignment of duties to people responsible, and then it's finally time to go home. I just wish I'd moved my car before the meters kicked back in in the morning. Ah well.
