The down side of systems librarianship

Don't get me wrong: I love my job. (Can't you just hear the "but" coming?) But... sometimes the tech support side of things can be a bit draining. Although the top priority on my to-do list is to get our new Drupal site finished and ready for public release, I have spent all of one hour on it in the last two weeks; I've spent the rest of the time rebuilding crashed systems, installing or reinstalling software, testing and retesting network hardware to see why things are so slow (turns out the switch is flaky), updating NIC drivers, blah blah blah...

On the up side, I've certainly been busy during this time; but oh how I miss being able to get back into the Drupal groove...

Maybe next week. </whine>

It's a balmy 60° and sunny. There's rain in the forecast, but right now, it's veddy nice!
