ok, I like my job, but this is too much

Ever had the feeling of going home only for sleeping?....or not ever for that...

I'm looking out-there for any soul with my same situation, help!

Red eyeballs, caffeine overdose, due dates, and knowing about my friends only by e-mail, I hope this project finishes soon cause it's killing my private life, (did I have any?) cause I don't remember.

I'm just looking for some helpful comment from the community, please, now I need you.

..well, actually It's not that horrible, ...if it has due date, it should finish some day..., or not?

Ha! Try supporting 200 Windows servers. After working every evening and weekend for a month to patch the latest security hole you finally think your going to get some speel and Microsoft releases 6 more patches so you get to start all over again.

Or try long distance trucking!

You get to bully everyone on the road (ha, well I do), and if you feel tired you just pull over on the road side and jump into the bunk.

The only downside is that net access can work out a little pricey

Atleast it is one Job.

holy cow! another OTR driver using linux! I surf from flying j, was only $99 per year, now up to $199 but from sprint and another network (can't remember the name, accessed from rip-griffen TS) will be good at several outlets, petro, T/A etc. I am thinking about getting out of my truck and going back to work as a nurd, maybe back to best buy's geek in a hole?
