I once worked over 48 hours straight on a circuit cut-over. Nobody thanked me because it was my job, and I was paid well to do it. Failure was not an option. As a paid professional your paycheck should be its own reward. Unless it's volunteer work, there is no need to prostrate yourselves and say thanks to those fixing what shouldn't be broken. The world has certainly changed. Trophy Generation.



That may very well be -- and it is certainly true - that I have put in inordinate amount of time on fixing outages. In one situation - where the com circuit went from South Korea to Japan - and was considered to be one of the most vital circuits we had - it was down for 3 days. The US Air Force guys in Japan were the controllers on the circuit. I had just finished a 12 hour shift and briefed the oncoming shift and shift supervisor - when I was called by the Army general's staff - directing that I, not my people, but I take over the control of the circuit and was not to go home until it was fixed. The problem was still in Japan, the Air Force techs were the only ones able to physically work on it - but I was still stuck at work.

I've had many another time that I had to work inordinate amounts of time to repair outages. And yes, it was never expected for someone to say "Thank you" --- but it was nice to be recognized for my efforts - or to have my people recognized for their efforts.

It is never - I repeat "never" in appropriate to tell someone thank you for doing their job.

Don't mistake fact for arrogance, supposition for fact, or disagreement for dismissal. Perception is unique in that it can be shared or singular. Run with the pack if you wish, but think for yourself. A sandwich can be a great motivator.

Has there been any talk of naming this event? For future reference. Something like "The Aegis Flaw of 2015"?

I've been playing since 2011 and never seen anything like this.

And I guarantee you every meeting before down time for the next month is going to end with someone saying to make sure they don't have to order Castello's Pizza tonight. lol

Ooh, maybe they can do extended downtimes once a day now so we can REALLY be appreciative of when we do get to play!

And maybe they can sometimes charge us double so we can REALLY be appreciative of when we only have to pay the normal rate.

Think about the positives that may have occurred as part of this extended DT. Some nerds have no finger nails left Shocked and the World's population is probably going to show a increases in 9 months time. All of this, due to EVE having an extended down time isn't that just awesome! Big smile I call that a Win/ Win,as longs as I'm not the DAD Cool

Nuuuuu! You CCP peeplz!!!11 You cannot leave half-eaten pizza on a server. The cheese melts and drips inside and causes the server to crash! Sad I blame the pizza delivery guy.

Hehe I've been playing since 2005 and this is just not so often these days - Progress !!

We used to call this "Patch Day" and why there are many other games installed on my PC that get used on days like this :D

Indeed. At least this one hasn't nuked any boot.ini files.

Kids these days. Next time just get some cheese instead of spewing all over the forums.
