It's so easy to lose everything

This week has been up and down more than the websites we depend on at work. I think today went okay, and everything we did amounted to some amount of progress, particularly with management attending our CCB meeting. We got to explain our situation to them at a high level, using our trouble ticket system to provide examples, and then went into detail about some of the individual tickets and what we're doing with them. I also discovered the cause of a problem that's been taking down our systems systematically, although I still had to fail a previous ticket that purported to fix that issue - it fixed what it was meant to fix, but that caused the issue we're seeing now to happen almost every time a system is left running for too long. We've also got some big issues that should be wrapped up this week and bundled for a full system test. So here's hoping the rest of the week is up.

It's been all up in Dark Souls, at least. I think I've finally met the final boss of the game. It makes sense story-wise for this to be the end of it. I could try to take him tonight, but I expect I'll go exploring a bit first. I have a weapon I want to ascend, which means visiting a particular out-of-the-way blacksmith, and I know of at least one room that should have some good items in it if I can figure out how to get them and survive. I can return to the final area at any time with little effort, so the risk is minimal, and there are a few things I know I still need to find. Grinding a few more levels before fighting the boss can't hurt either. Well... much.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
