So, my company has asked all employees to take a week off. Sounds awsome but they do not want to pay us for that week. Ok so they did not ask, they told us to take a week off. Anyway, I thought what better to do then go to the happiest place on earth to forget about the unpaid week off I had. My wife and I spent two days at Disney, one day was a special event through her work. It was great, almost no lines both days. We waited at most about 40 minutes for Space Mountain. Other than that I bet we did not wait more than 10 minutes for anything.

This was my first time going in about 20 years so a lot has changed. First time that I was able to go to California Adventure and I thought that was pretty cool as well. Loved the Tower of Terror.  If you are planning a trip I think that this is the time of year to go.

Now that I had a great time at Disney I am back to work and knee deep in it again. I am still working on getting my health check script to work against all of the instances that I have identified. Also have a few servers that need some TLC real quick. Looks like some new instances without any backups running and Databases are using the Full recovery model. Need to get those backed up before the logs grow out of control. It is good to be back to work.

I also am going to start hitting the books hard again. Need to take my second test so I can move on to the third. I really want to get the 2005 certification out of the way so that I can get started on the 2008. I would really like to have both of those before the end of this year. Something else to add on to the list of things to accomplish in 2010. I know Disney was not on the original list, but at least I got that done. ha ha ha….
