May 1, 2018: Conference Calls

Monday morning. We are back in Dallas and it is time to get back to work. I have my conference call this morning, but I sat in the meeting for a long time and no one showed up. A rather common occurrence it seems. IT teams are often seen as not being all that consequential and just ignoring us or forgetting that they’ve requested that we attend a meeting. Canceling a meeting is fine, but it would be nice if they told us about it rather than letting us just sit there every week waiting for them.

MangoLassi had a big outage today from Linode’s datacenter having a hardware failure.

This evening it was brats on the grill in the atrium. The weather is great and grilled brats are just perfect.
