My cloud is getting out of hand...
DIARY DAY 7
Incident Five: Thursday morning:
Severity of Face Plant impact: Lost my marbles
Fiscal impact: Put on unexpected holiday.
Career Impact: Remote and distributed. (I’m out the office and all over the place)
Emotional Status: Virtual basket case.
Following yesterday’s Dropbox fiasco I must admit I “ramped up” a bit (as we cloud managers say). I think I lost my mental elasticity, got emotionally charged and went medieval all over some user’s aaS.
They found me calling a help line, telling them how worried I was about my growing cloud, which was scaling up faster than I could handle and, to make matters worse, was showing all the signs of being a hybrid. According to the lady on the other end of the line, this particular issue was nothing to worry about though and is increasingly common these days. The slight problem was that I hadn’t realised I was actually calling the RSPCA. The boss has given me a few days off now. Told me to take my time coming back and take some gardening leave. (I live in an apartment.)
