Fabulous Fun Friday Furlough Day

Well, I'm trying out my first furlough day. So far, I've slept 12 hours, read my email, got caught up on twitter and read a few articles on Drupal. I've found out that lots of folks are out today and we don't have good coverage on some of our servers.

The whites are in the washer, towels in the dryer. As fun as this is, it feels a lot like a Saturday or a take-a-max-accrual-vacation-day where you're at home on an official day and keeping an eye on your operations...

Organizational Changes

As we prepare for the Fall quarter, I'll have some new responsibilities that include Physical Security Systems and an increasing role in supporting Student Affairs and the Chancellor's Office divisions. This reorganizational effort is driven by budget constraints. My personal action plan is to start learning some of the processes, people and technologies at work in these divisions through the Fall and Winter.
