...goin on two weeks with no day off, and don't see any relief in sight... I'm tired, burned out, and my stress reliver (10R) is "grounded" due to the fuggtastic weather. Helping birth a new OS is always an experience, to say the least. Thank God Redmond only releases one every 4-5 years or so..... This ole squirrel's a draggin' his tail, but come Tuesday it'll all be worth it. :wink:

...that's a good question. I work at one of Dell's Dimension manufacturing facilies. They keep my ass locked in a lab for public safety; at least that's what I tell peeps. Most of my work involves supporting our NPI (New Product Introduction) department in regards to factory readiness for new platforms, OSs, and other misc. hardware/software. Keeps me on my toes to say the least, but I do love my job. :wink:

...dude, I'm sorry to hear that. Those crazy hours gotta take a tole on ya. You be careful commuting to work on such a schedule. I've already totaled one vehicle coming home late one night, and drifting off the road... :headshake

Hey, BigDally, when is Dell going to ship workstations with Linux preinstalled? I work in a big Linux (RedHat) shop, and we love the Dells. I run FC6 on a 9150 with 4Gigs of ram. Works good for the pretty Beryl effects, etc...

Watch the burnout. I've been there, done that.

Good question. I've been wonderin' that myself. We used to offer a Redhat distribution preinstallation on our Dimension line, but that has since went the way of the DoDo.....

Managed to snag a good 8 hrs of sleep last night, so all is gettin' better already. :helmet:
