Another successful 20 mile ride!

I'd say much more successful... I kept pace with my friends better and there was no blood sugar crash due to a planned 2nd powerbar break at about 7 miles.

I guess I didn't blog at all this week... it was busy at work. We are currently in the midst of an Active Directory migration from our old Windows 2000 domain to an existing 2003 domain, and then as soon as that is completed we get to move into our new data center which just got its raised floor put in. I really need to snap some pictures of the current server room and the spaghetti mess of a switch rack and then some comparative shots of the new wiring rack and data center. It is truly night and day. I am excited!

And better than the datacenter, when the migration is done you will be closer to hiring The Angry Coder to make .NET apps for Layne... O glorious day!

true... after this is the Notes to Exchange migration.

You'll have to keep me posted on the Exchange fun times. I still want to install Exchange 2007 on our network, but it is tricky with our SBS 2003 domain controller.

Everything you guys talk about turns to nerdery...

Percussivity said...

As defined by David Spade's character in the movie "Tommy Boy", a 'Nerdery' is a location where intellectuals can retire to after a long day's work, thus your usage of the word does not strictly make any sense.

The Unabashed Blogger said...

Let me re-phrase:

Every time you 3 hijack a conversation, the comment thread morphs into a Nerdery in which words oozing of nerdiness (such as domain and migration) are thrown around with a carelessness that personifies the attitude of "IT"ers world wide as they abuse the LUSers around them )there's an oxymoron for ya). I compare the effects of these words on a conversation with "normal" people to the Enola Gay over Hiroshima.

Percussivity said...

I had no idea that our words were so incredibly powerful! So when we speak to the LUsers at our own level of communication... we literally blow them away?? That's fantastic!!!

Percussivity said...

Although actually the Enola Gay itself merely created a low rumbling sound in the sky as it passed. It was the hydrogen bomb perhaps that you meant to refer to.

The Unabashed Blogger said...

Nope.

Percussivity said...

So you are saying that when we speak it causes people to look skyward with an odd puzzled expression?

The Irascible Neufonzola said...

Ha, nerdery in our case is jobbery, or paycheckery, if you will.

Honestly, I promise, I don't go home at night and cruise the Microsoft development team blogs for fun. Although that is an affliction some of my colleagues in this profession are probably suffering from.

Perhaps Mr. Blogger was merely saying that technology-rich language places the technophobic listener in a position where they require complete nuclear annihilation to come to the point of signing a peace treaty on board the USS Missouri. Although I hope that is not what he meant, because it doesn't make any bally sense. Would hate to see his mind go at such a tender age.
