Work woes.

Ugh. Stress. We had a staff meeting today, and it looks like even more layoffs are coming, on Wednesday, in fact. The catchphrase of the day at the office was, "I'll do it Thursday." Also, the final phase of the news server move is taking place tomorrow night. I really feel for dvorak and Dizzy. We tried to schedule the move during the day so that when the multi-hour move process was done, they would be awake enough to be able to fix things if anything went wrong. Unfortunately, management prevailed, and their not allowed to shut down the server until midnight. Then the server has to be dismantled, packed up, driven to the main facility, unpacked, reracked, and recabled. And only then will we know if there's anything wrong. Eeg.

*sigh* I should probably be looking for a new job, but I can't seem to bring myself to do it. I've been with this company (or some iteration therein) for five and a half years now, and intertia is strong. Besides, I'd probably have to actually go to the office at any other job. Regardless, if anyone has any interesting documentation / web / sysadmin / project manager type jobs for which I might be a good match, please feel free to drop me a line. I'm not actively looking, but if something interesting or exciting comes along, who knows?
