New job.. New people

I've been so busy at work these past few days, I only realised the Melbourne Cup was today when my ex-manager called me to check up on me - and if I could, then to meet up with the old gang at the Martin Place TAB. (A temporary location thats setup so the city people can get their horse bets in). But unfortunately I couldn't make it.

I haven't even heard of the horse that won the Melbourne Cup today. And I'm not so sure the rest of Australia had either before today - Japanese horses took out 1st and 2nd placings. Grats to them... it was a great race to the finish ... :)

I guess I'm still having issues adjusting to my new environment. The people are really nice. However, I get this feeling that I'm not sure what I am supposed to do here... yet. There are heaps of projects (or so I've been told). But I guess I still have a lot of paper work to get through before I get to touch anything.

I did get to go to the data center today. Its the biggest I've been in so far. I had to go in to change a failed disk. But the disk enclosure that was dispatched didn't fit into the array. (Yes... wtf ?!?). Reminds me of my first day in my previous job when the vendor sent some rail kits that didn't fit into the racks. It was about 1-2cm too short. It doesn't sound like alot, but given that its steel.. you can't really stretch it...so even 0.5cm is alot.

Just my luck I guess.. hope they send the right parts out tomorrow. (fingers X)

Melbourne Cup! I didn't even realised that it was yesterday. We don't the luxury of having a half day off just to watch horses run here. Still remebered how i missed out betting on Makybe Diva last year.

I am excited and disappoint at the start of the race... Yeah... I got #1 and #13 for the 2 sweeps in office, and they are both in the first 4 horse positions!!! the disappointment part is... if they are up there in the early stage, they'll drop very quickly when it turn into the straight line... so as expected, they "disappeared"...

hahahah... wrong spec?? you prob used to it already...
