Crisis Management

Our new desktop release was corrupted in replication to approximately 100 distribution servers. Rumor has it that the release image itself is corrupted, but that is not the case.

Today's focus:

  1. Checking status of this past weekend's replication. Was it successful? Yes.
  2. Engineering built a tool to validate the CRC (Cyclic redundancy check)
  3. If CRC is not validated, then the installers need to download a new image (2 gig) and burn new CD's
  4. I managed this today ... and drafted communications to be sent out to all installers.


  1. Nice time with kids yesterday. We had three slabs of ribs. I had about 8
  2. Church in am .. message from Isaiah 6
  3. Kathee and I finished Zechariah
  4. Worked until 6:30
  5. News that Kathee's brother is in intensive care

Isaiah 6:1-8

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2 Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one cried to another and said:

“ Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”

4 And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 So I said:

“ Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The LORD of hosts.”

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said:

“ Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin purged.”

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:

“ Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
