My daughter is off to camp, amidst much drama from the ex. Last weekend was blown away with testing. Testing to beat the band right up to installation. But it's stable. There's a code freeze but the project manager is flexible. Is this great bullshit or what?

Coming up for air. Sunday has a little work on testing, which should be it until the big mid-July install. The project is free entertainment! Covered the kid's summer camp travel plans. This was a big effort. She's bored hanging around town during summer. As Eddie Cochran aptly put it almost 50 years ago, there ain't no cure for the summertime blues.

This may be time for serious blogging. No further information from the ex about whereabouts of my kid at camp, or flight information. I may be putting a lot of time into the legal followup to get this information and keep my daughter safe.

Jump the Shark?
Deathmarch level testing has been called off for now, giving Cappy more time to blog. Usual summer refusal to notify Cappy of daughter's whereabouts landed the kid's arrival time from summer camp on target during big deal production installation. I've covered this exposure at work in the unmanly way of having shifts with another DBA during the 48 hour install process. Too bad. Taking care of kid is Numero Uno priority. Will deal with consequences at work later.

The ex delivered this gem of information, that she wouldn't be here to pick up kid from camp while I was doing 48 hour test of systems conversion and the ex was in the hospital for a week. Perfect timing!

Back blogging again, after fixing single-handedly some bizzare html problem. This displays once again the superior programming skills, or, for you youngsters, skizzles of Captain SQL! Completely pulled back into total life or death spirmittment for the last big project. Hired gun project manager has been tap tap tappity dancing his way past not having a fallback plan (lying through his stinkin' teeth!). He's been warned by the best analysts on the project not to put the thing in on a two day weekend, but nothing stops him! Blowing out 2-8 hours for system maintenance in the middle of the conversion? No problem for him. Cappy will be ready with his appointed tasks. My recommendation for conversion weekend: crash helmet and plenty of coffee.
