Things are as the subject line says… or as near as, with the exception of the president of one of our operating units complaining that the new phone system is a "piece of shit" and the "worst phone system [he's] ever had to deal with". It all stems from one piece of functionality the old system had that the new one is currently lacking, and it's only his OU that wants/needs it. Otherwise, his opinion is definitely a minority opinion; personally, I love the new phone system, and a lot of us think the OLD system was the worst phone system we've ever had to deal with.
Other than having to fight with the POP3 mail server on the engineering fileserver yesterday, the upgrade from Red Hat Linux 8 to CentOS Enterprise Linux 4 went pretty smoothly. Now I just need to arrange my trip next week to Jennings and Houma to get the two RH8 boxes at those locations moved to CentOS EL 4. The main issue I'll have with those compared to the Cypress server is the fact that on the Cypress server, the data that needs to be kept was on a separate hard drive. In other words, I'll have to back up the data onto something else before I can do a wipe and reload. Bleh. Hopefully I can convince one of my coworkers to let me put a second hard drive in at least one of these machines.
Tonight will most likely be a poker night, as Anderson emailed the usual gang late yesterday afternoon to try and get a game together. As usual, I've got nothing planned for tonight, so I'm most likely in. Hopefully I can do better this week than I did at the last poker game. (I lost $42.50 at the last poker game.) Oh, well… as long as there are no stretches of Balls (three-card Guts, which I've stopped playing because of how brutal it gets) or 7-27 (which I absolutely hate), I should be fine.
Anyway, gotta run and fix a mysterious printer problem… fun…
