I do.  I work for a company based in the UK and somewhere down the line (before I started there 5 years ago) someone lazy American convinced them Columbus Day was a major holiday over here.  I when I heard that  I snickered to myself and said, 'that's cool."  I think I'll go to enslave a few Native Americans tomorrow in commemoration.

I hit the range Saturday.  Unfortunately, my day tomorrow is already booked with patching drywall and priming/painting the master bathroom.

I'm so domestic...

I get to go to Lafayette Indiana tommorow morning for a week long project. Should I bring guns? Any Indiana guys wanna adopt an Ohio shooter for a week?

You and I do the same thing, SNM.  I got tired of the travel and left the Gold partner I'd spent 5+ years with.  Now I've got 34 CCM/ICM/IPCC servers I call my own, and I work as close to an 8 to 5 schedule as I've ever seen in the IT industry.  Did I mention that work is only 3.5 miles from home and I sleep in my own bed every night?

Life is good...

Department of Defense civilian.
Funny thing is, as a kid, I always remember my dad getting the day off and he'd snicker as my brother and I would have to head off to school. (he was a DoD civilian, just retired on 30Sept with something like 38 years of service)

Dont you get like double time for working on a holiday? I always take the comp time instead of the money, since I just started last year and I get barely any vacation, so I'm not up on the multipliers.

No school up here in the Deer Valley school district.  I'm betting your kids don't have school either...

The range I got to is closed on mondays.

I do, but that's because my hours have been cut.  From this week til the end of the school semester I'm going to be working about 10 hours a week instead of thirty.  Payday's gonna suck.

+1

Actually it is my day off due to how my shift is split with half our crew working Sun-Thurs and the other half Tues-Sat.   We maintain the network for our MAJCOM, so its a 24/7 operation.

I actually get paid holiday pay for this since the other half of my crew works the holiday.  Hmm, I think there are some C&R goodies I can get with the extra cash.

I don't (seeing as my plant is in Mexico), but I'm taking it anyway.

Fuck 'em. I use these weekends to see my kids since they don't have school. If that gets me fired, I'll just land a better job.

34 servers? No roggers? Are the ICM routers and loggers on separate servers, or something?

I only travel about a 1/4 of the time. Most times, I work out of my house. I haven't seen my office in like 2 months. I don't even have a desk there, come to think of it. For the most part, I'm only on site for a few days for admin and end user training, cutover, and day 1 support. Customers typically rack the gear and place phones. I usually mandate VPN connectivity, and write the IP-IVR/ICD workflows at home. Design docs and final deliverables are written in my undies at my home office.

No work for me!  Working for the .gov pwns!  Of course, I still have classes
Link Posted: 10/9/2005 8:32:02 PM EDT
DOD contractor here too, but my company doesn't give tomorrow as a holiday.  Oh well, I'll just be at work without most of the customer base.  Fine with me, maybe I'll get some work done!

Actually if the bank is closed and there is no mail... We close.

Let's see:

5 CallManagers
2 Unitys
2 Roggers
2 AWs
8 PGs
2 CTIOS
2 SDDSNs
4 ISNs
7 IVRs (includes speech recognition)

Those are all production servers (we run a split cluster).
