I have about an hour and a half more to be on call. We got word that yet again, someone's leaving our group today, this time going to another group in the building. And this time we get a trade employee. We'll see how it goes.
Even though I didn't work a maintenance window, this was the most difficult oncall I have worked yet. I never got much sleep, and people around me began to notice that I was a bit irritable and short. But I'm done now(until November anyway), and I plan on going to belt out some karaoke tonight, if anyone else shows up. But no matter! Even though it's a weeknight, I still feel like a kid on the last day of school before a break. All I have at work until November is business as usual, and that's just fine with me.
In other news, I'm working on a replacement for the tired old look of bahua dot com. Included in the plans are a new look, along with a lot of new functionality and simplification. It's allowed me to try out some new things, and rewrite the backend of the site quite a bit. I still haven't opted for a database or a pre-rolled content management system yet, since I wouldn't learn anything, or as much, with that. Since the update I'm making will be something that users will actually notice, it'll be a long time in development.
It'll take a long time to write it all, as I'm basically rewriting the entire website, but it's all extremely exciting to me. Any time that I'm not oncall will be devoted to the rewrite. Well, that and video games. And beer. And going out. And so on.
