I've been non compos Mentos for a couple weeks, in the furious run-up to a big project at work, my project. I've run some projects, been a foreman, sub-foreman before, but I've been trying to get behind a desk for a few years, and this is a fairly heavy duty project, upgrading and new footprint for the power harness in one of our buildings. I am looking at this as both an audition for that desk, and a feather in my cap for my current position (which is, admittedly, nowadays, mostly admin/planning, but I still must climb around switchgear all too often...)
There have been three prior phases in this whole project over the last 18 months, all smaller, difficult enough as standalone tasks, but tonight is the cap to all 4 phases. Twenty months of planning, the last six months just for tonight (and yes, if you look at that calendar math, this thing has evolved significantly from conception, when after the first phase we realized we had the chance and support to do big things.)
And now, following three furious weeks of construction, and troubled sleep, we do several cutovers tonight under no sleep. I start at 6pm, expect to be done by noon tomorrow, have hopes of being done by 10am, have fears of being done at 2pm, in which case there will be meetings.
REPRESENTATION OF PALEO'S BRAIN
Wish me luck.
Regular posting to resume this week, with a short post tomorrow informing y'all of my employment status.
