    Feeling amused

    I'm the only network engineer at my organisation aside perhaps from my manager.
    Any how, I explain to the general IT worker that the internet ("locally" is surprisingly not that resilient, considering that the company called "Level three" is perhaps our only major link here to the USA, and if you screw up a BGP update, you can send all your traffic to Pakistan, causing mass outage... (ie: like what YouTube did a long time ago)

    And that, when the floods happened in Glasgow, BT had a single point of failure which knocked all of the businesses in Glasgow off in the early hours of the morning. In fairness, they fixed it really quickly but still, there's only a single point of failure and that's bad because well, if you had two points of failure, at least you could fix one, and still have internet

    I mention that apparently one of my ex colleagues works at a place where 75% of UK businesses go through their network, and I said imagine if they failed, even though it is highly unlikely
    Colleague replied "Yeah. That'd mean I'd have no Peroni deliveries"

    Forget the NHS' N3 network, forget NHS Scotland, forget the emergency services in general.. What's most important is his Peroni lol!

    My concerns were the emergency services and the loss of commerce (also, porn, but not the commercial kind). His... beer lol

    I know how you feel, emptiness is the worst. We can share thoughts on this, if it makes you feel better, although I have learned in time that the only one who could make this bareness more endurable is only yourself and if I knew a magical solution to end it I would tell you, but unfortunately I haven't found it yet.

    I wouldn't say it necessarily gets easier, but there are times when there's a weird level of blank enthusiasm and then horrible moments of waste and then something could suddenly make me happy. It's like a roller coaster, the most important is to find your own rhythm and not fall into a vicious routine which could make you forget those amazing parts about yourself.

    :hugs: smile for me pls :hugs: you were one of my first friends on here, I hate knowing that you aren't feeling well.
