Came back offshore Thursday lunchtime, after a couple of hours delay due to aircraft issues.
On the way out I woke up at one point and just felt really sh!t.
Arrived onboard, had lunch and then lasted all of about 2 hours before giving up and sending myself to bed. Got up on the Friday morning to do the morning call with town, then went back to bed.
Got up this morning, felt a lot better, even managed breakfast and lunch! by about 4 I was starting to feel weary. Heading off to my evening management team meeting just shortly. Force a bite to eat, then any guess where I'm going? yep. Bed.
Offshore for new year sucks, Offshore for new year and feeling sh!te == really sucks.......
On the plus side, skiing holiday in March paid for today so at least something to look forward to in the new year! Bring it on!
edit: On another note, I think the microsoft hamsters must be on holiday, downloading SQL Server Express (1GB DL) is taking an eternity.....
operator: process data behaves erratically
support: what do you mean?
operator: mostly things seems to work very well, but sometimes, like now, it's lagging
support: we'll look into it
operator: fine end of video call
Unfortunately I interrupted some of the local manager's calls with upper management.
After that, whenever he was about to begin a call he warned me not to deploy. Eventually the company put in a better link. Then made me work at headquarters. Then laid me off for good measure.
