When I was working, most of the desktop PCs (and several of the servers) under my care were windoze boxen. So Tuesdays were usually Patch Day. This went double when Sun (excuse me, Oracle) adopted Tuesdays for patch releases also. Now that I’m unemployed, I manage only Red Hat Servers (sorry, HomelyGosling, I can’t plug you in yet) so Patch Day is Saturday. Tuesdays are now “WoW Realm Maintenance Day.” Which is good because I get a chance to do all the basic maintenance tasks that get pushed aside for instance runs most days. It’s bad because I keep remembering basic maintenance tasks I want to do to my WoW characters too.
So for this Realm Maintenance Tuesday, I’m running the snowblower in an uphill battle against quite a big storm, phase-shifting my grandmother’s old collection of audiocasettes into MP3, reconfiguring my Saitek game controller (always a new spell / command I want to put somewhere), and tensioning/tuning my 12-string guitar which I restrung last night.
The realms will be back up at 1PM CST and my Penguins come on at 2:30PM CST so that gives me at most 1.5 hours to play WoW today.
