In Auto-Pilot

I left work at almost 2:00am last night. I had to merge source code that my client sent very late in the day. They usually upload it to us in the evening, so I can merge in the morning. But yesterday, they gave it to me in the afternoon.

Knowing I had a dentist appointment this morning meant that I needed to finish merging last night before I left. </a></b></a> said he had to burn a Gold Master Candidate release onto CD anyway, so we were both going to be late.

I finish my merge at a reasonable 8:00pm (or was it 9:00pm... I can't remember now). He's still not done. He's working on a Mac and, basically, everything that could have gone wrong, DID.

rm -rf * wouldn't force delete one of their trees. That set them back about a hour to figure out that Macs have an extra "lock" attribute that you have to unset before you can rm -rf *... which makes total sense, but when you just plain didn't know that, you're completely baffled as to why a simple *NIX/FreeBSD thing IS NOT WORKING.

And that was a relatively minor setback. Of course, they had to run into the obligatory Development Environment Not Supported On Panthwire (*knee-slap* HAHA, take that Steve Jobs!) Problem. That took a billion years of finaggling.

And then the burn fails, so they had to start over.

We were home by about 2:30am or so. I was pretty out of it in the car on the way. But wouldn't you know it, I WOKE THE FUCK UP once I got home. I didn't get to sleep until 6:00am. We got up at 9:00am so that I could drop him off at work for a late 10:00am start before I bumbled my way to my dentist.

Awwwww .. you shouldn't sacrfice sleep for work ... unless you're getting paid overtime or big bucks. But even then .. you can't take your health for granted.

Just because you did it all through university, doesn't mean you should do it once you get in the real world too. ;o) --Ray
