    Default Go Live Day

    I love it.

    The culmination of all our hard work and planning. Sitting here with a IM window scrolling past with all the infrastructure guys ticking things off the deployment schedule. All running to time.

    Nice to get a win before I head to the bench.

    Is this the first project to deliver on time in the history of IT?

    Better yet I heard the ERP vendor sent a formal letter of compaint to Client Co blaming our project for their delays owing to insufficient data quality. I just pulled a document I wrote yonks ago, citing the agreed data deliverables, assumptions, caveats etc. It's getting all "law-suitish", but I think that document might just have blown the whole compaint out of the water.

    All they way along I asked for acceptance criteria. They didn't provide, so I wrote my own and sent it to them for sign off in August. Clever suity.

    Anyone else going live today? Quite a dos.
    Knock first as I might be balancing my chakras.

    Very good, has your invoice been paid?

    On a Friday? Schoolboy error.
    Keeping calm. Keeping invoicing.

    So you go live and sod off? Where is the ELS, or the post implementation review?

    Always doing things half arsed
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Review at 3pm. Going live on a Friday is very common. It gives you the weekend as contingency. What's wrong with you people?
