    Have you tried adding a NSFW section to your blog @PeachyRider@PeachyRider? I hear that gets a lot of traffic.

    get up at 5am don't leave your computer. lay in bed while doing the most mind numbing vaccination hit over and over until you fall asleep. rinse and repeat. a lot of it is hard work. a lot of it is masochism. mix in some desperation and being an addict. must hate yourself.

    edit: it's not really all that bad. I actually kind of love turking, and the work, so it works out. Some days are better than others though, and it really is a grind.

    HAHA very GOOD HUMOR!

    Seriously though, I hang out at Starbucks all day drinking Pumpkin Spice Latte's and taking vape breaks. It was 75 out here today, if I had a laptop with a brighter screen I would have spent most of the day on the porch.

    nah. i work remote. most of my job is spent monitoring data center things so i always have that up on one monitor and turk on another. some days, like today, my team and i get slammed with server work and we don't hardly even have time to talk to each other.

    sorta. we don't actually have a NOC though we're trying to put one in place early next year. I do application operations so while it's similar in a lot of cases to what a NOC would be responsible for, we're also writing code for system-wide software deployments, building out servers, moving databases and such. we're trying to separate out a lot of the monitoring duties because our team is pretty small (18) and we're responsible for maintaining a dozen different products and over 30K databases. luckily it's not as bad as it seems. most days are pretty quiet.
