    Planned:
    Watch the Dev staff scurry around like lab mice as they execute their planned maintenance.

    Unplanned:
    Laugh as I watch the Dev staff scurry around like lab mice as they try to figure out what went wrong.

    Re: servers down

    for me - just switch over to one of the other products/applications that I am over which doesn't have an environment down.

    I like Brent's #2 up there as well, but for me all my environments are supported close to 1000 miles away and can't watch. I feel a tremor in the force at times, but can't really see anything.

    Re: servers down

    Lol, yeah I can laugh now, but where I was before I 'knew too much" which meant that any time anything went down I actually co-ordianted with our on-site staff in diagnosing the outage and, at the same time, co-ordinated with the people at our data center in order to see if they had discovered any issues at their end.

    I like not being responsible for that anymore [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: servers down

    I never even log in to the product I'm testing, I just create test cases for it for other people to execute. I have no idea whether it's up right now or not. (Probably not.)

    Re: servers down

    brent - I used to be the one to do that too. Far better to be removed of it. I am losing less hair over it (although it has picked up pace due to other areas of consideration)
