Just Another Day In The Life Of A Sysadmin

What a fun work day today was!
It started off with a false virus alarm due to a bad .dat from NAI and then was followed by all manner of meetings and teleconferences regarding the recent failure of one of our business-critical systems. I spent the afternoon attending an internal business software design meeting and then repeatedly slamming up against Oracle syntax constraints. Oh, how I long to be allowed to use the simplicity available to me in MySQL, but alas, ’tis not to be.
Enough of my petty whining! Life is good and if these are the greatest of my troubles, then I am living a good life indeed.
