    Yep - here to about, well, urm... should be lunch time, but maybe a bit earlier when the site staff start locking up.

    Gives me a chance to check the backups, do a couple of server restarts and get ready for the lard fest.

    Working from home migrating the last of our 2003 servers to 2008R2 on our VMWare cluster. Am starting to run out of RAM at the mo though due to having both 2003 and 2008 versions of the same servers running at the same time while they replicate, am going to have to start shuffling VM's around, might be finished by 3pm!

    Back in the olden days, 1990s, when I worked for Lloyds of London, we had to make support available until the insurance market officially closed at 4pm and only then could we run the big back ups and batch runs. We, Technical Support, generally got to go home by 5pm. It was frustrating as we could see nobody was logged on or using anything... the underwriters and brokers in the city were all gone by noon. This was mainframe support - no mobile devices. I'm not sure to this day when the operators got to go home... it was late.
