This is a good day. This night we had a routing problem in the backbone - which meant that the servers I am working with were not reachable. Which meant that I got alerted.... Well - because it was a routing problem, I haven't had much to do except of traceroutes. After one hour that problem was fixed.

Then I had to make measurements how fast our black-box-NFS-Storage can be, mounted via NFS to a Solaris box. Its interesting; if the datamover is really idle you can find >8000 directories with "find /mount/point" within 10 seconds. But you have a datamover who is working this drops down very far....

And I just got the recent news: our company changed the mobile provider. Three days ago. Now everyone who has a company mobile has to switch to the new provider (now!), use the new number, copy all his numbers in the memory to the new card, publish the new card......

I like chaos, especially when I am not involved (my mobile is a private one).

And btw: the Apocalyptica Concert in Karlsruhe next week is sold out. Too bad.
