Ten o'clock update...

I just finished rewriting the budget request to purchase our Oracle license for the network manager machine. I'm still not entirely sure how that little piece (rather critical to the success of the whole project) was overlooked at the beginning, but it was, so here I am. My manager provided me with some figures and information that he wanted me to incorporate before we actually submitted it for approval. I did so, rewriting the case study to highlight how imperative this expenditure is, then added an executive overview as a cover sheet. See? I can play the corporate game if I'm forced to.

So that means I've got two items on my list of six things checked off. For this project I'm still left with a requirement to provide a vendor recommendation, draft a procedures document and work with the DBAs to ensure that the database is backed up (Something I can't really do until the license is approved and we can upgrade the installed database software to a version to something that isn't from the Bronze Age). I am also still left with my performance appraisal, which is what I think I'm going to start working on now.

Two more hours here, and then I'm going to go home and collapse. I got less than four hours of sleep last night so I'm running in a serious deficit already, and the week is only half over. Wish me luck.

Oh you get me ready in your 56 Chevy
