Dogs 2010

14 HOURS
(2/2/10)


the
primary server
hard drives
failing

the
primary product
hosting provider
cancelling contract

the
primary reseller
not happy
continuing
existing royalty scheme
for the new year

not enough
time
in an eight
hour day
to deal
with it
all

so here
we are
well
after 5pm

the owner
the IT head
the outside
tech consultant
and me

I
do not have
a title
in case
a toilet
needs
to be cleaned

hardware
an easy fix
only time needed
to transfer
data

the other
two items
would take months
of product
and market
makeover

a plan
is outlined
and argued
while much coffee
is consumed

server
finally
back up
and running
so we call it
a night
at 9pm

I am home
fifteen minutes
later

absence
does not always
make the heart
grow founder
and I am greeted
with terse responses
and cold
food

maybe
Tuesday
will be
better
