Fuck you, Sangoma. You've caused me as much headache as you've saved me. I love you and hate you all at the same time.

But you make us a decent sum of money with your crap.

Please respond to my emails. Don't tell me to upgrade my card's firmware, because I won't. We've been down this road before.

AT&T, give me my access to the ASR interface. Please? I *need* it.

I just found the command "mysqlreport" today and am very pleased by what it outputs. Now I have to keep an eye on that on my servers and adjust it accordingly. One step further away from being a black box on the issue. Excellent!

I wrote a cool T1 pricing calculator and automatic CFA finder to determine the cheapeast way to order the line, and where to pull it from if it's gotta go interoffice. It's quick and dirty at the moment but it shall evolve into something wonderful.

We're carving pumpkins tonight with one of our friends. I had to invade a closed garden center to acquire them. I felt like solid snake, in "Metal Gear Solid 5: Pumpkin Eater".

I am annoyed by 7 digit dialing. People make a big deal about dialing a freakin area code. Telecom is more complex than it needs to be because people are whiny bitches. I'm not referring to customers per-se, but more about things like area code splits, and all sorts of other garbage. Overlays are the way of the future. Learn it, live it, love it. Adapt and overcome. I recommend a phone with speed dial if you are concerned about extra digit dialing. Every phone I've ever bought has the option. (Well, except the ones I've purchased because I collect weird and old phones).

I got a great review at work. Of course the day had to also be full of all sorts of strife unrelated to the review but work related nonetheless, canceling out my ability to be really really happy. Hopefully all the system related problems are done so I can enjoy this day and a half of calm. And a few hundred extra dollars from the bonus, which I needed because I don't have all my bills rearranged to this new wacky "2 week paycheck" stuff (it was previously twice a month, at the last day of the month and the 15th, which I liked better because you knew that certain stuff was due at a certain time, and that a certain paycheck always covered that. But I like this job better so it's a fair trade I suppose.)

I wish I had more time in the day. I really need to go through and organize all my shit in the livingroom. It's out of control and is interfering with day to day life again. I just need to come home at a reasonable hour one night and sit down and do it. Damn my procrastination.

  1. people down in Miami/FtLauderdale don't have any qualms with 10 digit dialing… maybe that's cuz they are used to it. the asswipes around here though bitch and complain about everything… "omg! you changed me from 313 to 248… omg! i'll have to spend $50 and reprint new business cards… omg!" no wait, it was 810 first, then 248 split from it. so to correct that it would be 313 to 810. LOL. although, I saw some company in West Bloomfield a week or two ago that STILL had 313 displayed for the phone number… hahahaha. or if not that then its the soccer moms complaining "come on, i can't remember 3 extra digits!" yet they can coordinate and execute a packed schedule with brain surgeon precision and can remember 184902349028 passwords, codes and other key information. guess I'm just the choir giving an AMEN to the preacher though eh?..

    manana is the most popular day of the week. 🙂

    1. heh if they didn't mind dialing 10 digits, they wouldn't have to reprint business cards. We're inconveniencing everyone for the sake of bitchy people. It's ridiculous

    1. The telephone system was designed initially in the 1800s. They did a great job all things considered. We wouldn't have splits at all if they permitted 10 digit overlays earlier. But people bitched about dialing the extra digits.
