Week 40 of 2009 was hell

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — admin @ 7:40 pm

Things at work have been high paced (higher than normal), high stress, and long hours the last few weeks. This past week was one of the worst so far. We’ve had to do a few 2am site restarts, 5am deploys, and most nights I don’t get home until sometime after 11pm. Between Tuesday and Wednesday I got a combined total of 7.5 hours of sleep. In a weird way it’s pretty rewarding. It’s unfortunate that we need to work such long hours in order to make any progress but hopefully it will slow down considerably once we find another SA and after the game finally launches.

Yesterday I went to lunch with the crew from MonsterTrak. We were going to have a bbq at my place but since there were a few that couldn’t make it we decided on just meeting for lunch. I’m actually glad it worked out that way because I haven’t had any time to get things ready for the bbq anyway. After lunch I came home and crashed for about 3 very needed hours.

Today is Hayden’s birthday, he’s 7 years old now. I don’t remember why, but he opened his gifts yesterday and called me while he opened the one from me. I wish I could have seen him open them, but the phone call was good too.
