Somedays, you just can't win.

So today I was digging into an annoying XML error at a site when a tech IMed me and requested I look at an issue they were having. Got the site number and dialed into to the sites back room system to poke around.

Ten seconds after I started looking, the site reboots the backroom system, kicking me out. I mentioned to the Tech Via IM that the store just rebooted the backroom system, and they said, and I quote "Yah, I did that."

"Why?"

"Well, its locked up, and I need to fix that eventually."

"So, you asked me to dial in and look at a problem, and then you reboot the system while I'm trying to fix it?"

"Well... I guess."

*sigh*

Somedays, you just can't win.

First

Well, I figured I'd let myself back into the blogosphere after a nice long hiatus, and this seems to be as good a place as any. As you might have guessed - I'm in Tech support, am not disgruntled, and generally enjoy my job.

This alone probably means I have a serious mental problem. But then, I'm no longer the poor guy on the front end answering direct calls, so that might have something to do with it.

I'm a Conservative (Please note this does not specifically mean Republican), a proud Firearm owner, a Computer Geek, Amateur Author, Roleplayer, and a lot of other things.

This Blog will likely have a lot of random moments of head smackery that may, or may not make sense to the non-technically minded, interspersed with my thoughts on all sorts of things... as they wander off the top of my brain.

You have been warned.
