Game Time

Today was just one of those days where everything that could go wrong went wrong.  When it rains, it pours, and the flood gates were open today.  The good news is that our server problems are now in our control:  the server is up and running so it’s just a matter of me migrating the files and databases and making everything play nice before changing the domain nameservers to our new server.

Last week – when I was in a decidedly better mood – I was thrilled that we finally “weathered the storm” and turned the corner.  I said “these are the times you live for as a business owner.”  Maybe so, but what we’re going through right now is what makes those times so great.  I’ve been working since 7 AM (now 7 PM) and I’m not going to bed until DI is up.  Armed with a four-pack of sugar-free Red Bull I’m as dialed in and focused as I have ever been…and it’s not going to wane as the night goes on.   In a way, I love the pressure.  I thrive under the pressure.  I want the pressure – it makes me feel alive.  The adrenaline rush that I get after banging out a time-sensitive task like this is second to none.

Since there’s lots of waiting when doing this stuff, I’ll try to post updates as I go.  Sort of like that wacky Twitter thing that the kids these days are all into 🙂

Sometimes owning your own business isn’t so fun.  I know it’s a total cliche, but if it was easy everyone would do it.

    Haha I love it! “Armed with a four-pack of sugar-free Red Bull I’m as dialed in and focused as I have ever been”

    Very funny point regarding Twitter. I still don’t get it. Who the hell gives a shit what I’m doing every 5 minutes. I think all of these tech apps are making people become egomaniacs…

    Totally agree Adam. Twitter makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
