Total no brain day today. You know when you have one of those days where you wake up and run the usual self diagnostic and think "Number of limbs: four. Functioning eyes: one. Total cognitive and creative capacity: 0."

yeahhhh that was my morning. Day overall, really. Hopefully my readers will forgive.

The shiney has also worn off my new pet buttmonkey. Seriously. Dude. Seriously. The fuck.

Consider this scenario if you will: There are two servers at a location. One is SQL, the other is terminal. You are familiar with these servers. Somewhat intimate. They devoured ten hours straight of your last sunday, after all. You have two SAS disks in your pannikin, and you are advised that you need to insert these two disks into the SQL server, then reimage the terminal server.

What part of this logic chain breaks to the point where you fucking well remove the hard disks from the terminal server while it's still running and attempt to insert them into the SQL server??

Presumably the same sequence of events that then causes you to call me up after hours and then claim you can't complete the job because the caddies on the SQL are 3.5, whereas the drives you're trying to insert are 2.5


I don't think he's long for this world. Not once I find the fucking mop handles, any rate.

You know, it's a quiet day. I'm puttering about, cleaning my office.

Let me tell you, when you're sitting there watching The Hound of the Baskervilles, cleaning your keyboard, minding your own business, right up in the list of Things You Do Not Want To Happen is while watching the start with the death of Sir Charles on the moor with the howling and theme music and the spookiness and the dog leaps then a GIANT FUCKING POSSUM FIGHT ERUPTS IN THE WALL BEHIND YOU.

Jesus fucking christ.

Fucking brushtails. They hiss. They screech. They do these fucked up guttural coughs, and I'm sorry non-Australians, but there's no real way to portray the unearthly horrifying KWAAAAAAAAAAAAA-A-A-A-A-A noise they make in the middle of the night that even IF you've grown up around them makes you go "JESUS FUCK WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK WAS THAT?.

The ripping noises of their claws INSIDE MY HOUSE also do NOT help.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

GUYS, GUYS. I HAVE JUST BEEN CHALLENGED.

Apparently all I write is crack. They want something else.

Like, oh, I don't know, what's the opposite of Crack? Angst? Can I do that? Can I?

*hysterical laughter*

I got feedback from the council job - they love my network experience, they want to have its fluffy bunnies..but they're unsure of my strengths on desktops and phone support.

Both jobs got the same resume.

WTF PEOPLE??

So at their request I've done a huge dump of my desktop/support experience. Considering I've done tier 1, 2, 3 front line phone bitching and back of house support for two national ISPs, the RAAF and navy and an international customer base and am damned good at it....
Well If I can get that into their heads, I know I'll score an interview. And if I get that and don't cock it by a sudden attack of flatulence, the job is mine.

Seriously. Is it that hard to comprehend one person knows that much and enjoys it? Really?
