What a satisfying day. I got just about everything accomplished that I wanted to.
I also found out that I'm being loaned from engineering to ops for a week or so in order to help with some of the issues they're facing. Should be fun. It'd feel more like a home-coming if I'd done more system-level work at HQ rather than focusing on the network side of things.
I should also thank haloform for being an absolutely amazing person, who continually finds ways to surprise and delight me.
