Late Night Page

I’m sitting outside the dentist shop beside my office. It’s late at night and I got paged by a dying server. I had to give up a chance to smoke cherry flavoured tobacco out of a shisha (yuck) to come here and work.
The server died (my best bet is some kind of kernel panic) and I couldn’t ssh into it to reboot it. Also, the crap control console the customer has me dial in to doesn’t have the capability to hard reboot the box. Also, the console is toast, and I can’t get into any of their managed boxes. So I called the tech contact and he’s going to reboot the machine tomorrow and pull it out of the DNS loop.
Now I’m just waiting for R to come back and pick me up so I can go home and sleep. I was supposed to be taking tomorrow off to go to the canoe place in London.
