- Got in about 5 minutes late, 9:05 am.
- Decided again not to purge my main mailbox (now at 12,000+ messages) If I don't stay on top of it every day it reaches critical mass pretty fast and explodes to this rediculous size.
- Checked the report on server backups that happened overnight (all good)
- Checked the health of a mail server I recently deployed, did a little queue manipulation that I'll need to automate soon
- Looked at the messages in the Network Operations Center (NOC) support queue, closed a couple, updated a trouble ticket and closed it.
- Took my break. Jae packed me a lunch so I didn't get lunch. Walked over to Starbucks, sat in the sun, read the first essay in _The Portable MBA_, which I borrowed from our General Manager's office.
- Started defining the procedure we'll use to migrate accounts from our current mail system to our almost ready new mail system. Timing is everything.
- Delivered the offsite backup to the place with the vault. The guard was new and I was his first vault customer. Basically I trained him. Showed him what paperwork to use, told him, "No, you don't let me through that door." Explained that he should check my ID against the photocopy of my ID in the book in the vault. Then I sat in the empty, air conditioned, echoy lobby for about 15 minutes until he brought me the disk I was picking up in exchange for the one I dropped off.
- I answered the phone a couple times when there was overflow. Didn't get bogged down into any desktop support, luckily.
- Now, in the remaining couple hours, I should get the migration procedure into the company wiki, and review trouble tickets one more time before leaving for my weekend.
