Library day in the life - 5 - Day 1

So here we are again. Library Day in the Life number five! Monday is a work from home day. No audacious commute from Toronto to Hamilton today! Morning: Morning soundtrack: BBC World Service podcast, TWiT - It’s The New Sex Talk, CBC Spark Daniel Pink on Motivation 3.0, The Protomen - The Protomen Catch up a bunch of email from last week, and finally got around to setting up Drush. Don’t know why I never got around to it before, but it definitely worth the time of checking out if you manage a few Drupal sites.

2009 OLITA Digital Odyssey

I must say that the Digital Odyssey was the best one day event I have been to. Just a fantastic day with fantastic people talking about awesome projects. It cheered me up and gave me hope in these crap times. Best part of the day had to be Mike Ridley’s keynote speech - The Age of Information is over. It is time for the Age of Imagination. It will be the library’s job to nurture and foster creativity.

Bacon… Sorry, had to get that of the way. Those who know, know. Those who do not, oh well. I will address it later… subtly??? Awhile back we got hit with the perfect-downtime-storm. A RAID controller battery randomly failed, and I was down for quite a few hours. Then a day or two later … a brown-out occurred. Somehow, some way, this killed the brand new RAID controller on the DB server, and disemboweled the RAID controller on the web server.
