I was pulled in an number of directions today but did get a great chance to lunch with an old friend who’s now in a fairly senior position at the regional hospital.
After grabbing some Chinese buffet we headed over for a complete tour of the data centre and backup facilities, and had a few good conversations about virtualization, remote management, server room cooling and one heck of a large battery backup system with three cores connected to dually-redundant power supplies on all their servers.
In otherwords: yum.
Came back to the office and chewed through some planning stuff with one of my bosses. Little bit of role reversal there as we had some fun and I challenged him to make a business case for a bunch of work he wanted me to do.
