I was a good Patch Bitch

So a couple of weeks ago, I was the patch bitch.

And I was a good bitch, too.

The other data center that is supposed to be better than us ... at everything ... well, looks like they learned a lesson this Christmas season because they got hammered with a virus yesterday (Merry Christmas, you're infected!) that had the technical lead team scrambling on Christmas day to get stopped, and working harder than they should be today to figure out how to stop it.

Why? Because apparently, they didn't patch their servers like we did.

So along with the other guys I work with, we're now patching their servers - servers that were supposed to be patched the 1st half of December when we did ours.

Why weren't theirs patched?

Well, they had "issues" with the process we used. They had a "better way."

Yeah ... better for them, obviously, because they didn't patch much, based on the fact we're running patches from three patch cycles ago; including some service packs for Server 2003 that should have been done when the servers were built and deployed.


But according to them, they're a better run data center than we are.

Today is just full of laughs for me, eh?

Back to the patching. Goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob.
