System Re-Installation at TPM Pt. IIB

[This was supposed to be on 27.08.2005 12 2348]

Today was supposed to be an easy job for us since we had already mounted the system last night. All we had to do is to trace the cables, activate it and do some minor programming. Yeah, right. SIMPLE is not a nice word because the job took us 13 hours and its still not even finished.

Because I was standing (in a single pose) the whole day, my back is sore and I don't think I can go back on Sunday to continue (This is also to make sure I do not get killed by my Wife for spoiling our Sunday plans). Yep, there would be Hell on Monday as we're having a few tight appointments to fulfill before coming over. Ha ha ha ha.

We arrived about 930 in the morning and began with the cabling connections

This is the before photo and I cannot show you the "after" as we stuffed a lot of other cables in there
(In case the cabling man might have Internet connections)

Just tight after lunch, seeing we're all sweating in the Server room, the customer made sure the air-con man installs the first air-con there, just for us. Yippee!

By now, the partitions are slowly coming in. So my guy had to re-trace the cables AFTER they wired in the panels because they did not follow the floorplan. Yeah, double-job for us.

The cable guy is stuffing a lot of Network and Voice cables into the partition frame, to be wired into the partition panels

Here is a closer look at the panels.
It contains (left to right) a power point, a blank panel for future use, a phone socket and a Network socket
Once this is done, the would look very neat (on the outside, that is)

An hour later, more partitions start to arrive and my guy had to re-trace the cables again. We had to stop work, wait for them to finish before we can continue.
Someone brought a speaker system and played those iritating hi-speed chinaman fengtau songs. I felt as if we're working next to a Disco. Yeah, psychologically,we did work faster, zombie-like.

We're bumping into each other (Network guys) all the time and smelling all those sweating bodies in that room and all over the place
The air-con guy is still fixing the air-con. I think we got conned by the air-con

By 1030PM, I am tired, and so is everyone.
My guy has left at 830PM so I had to go on by myself.

When I left 20 minutes later, the fucking air-con is ready.
Now all the partitions are in and no one
(me, that is) is going to re-trace the cabling this late as there is only so much madness I can endure. Everyone is slowly disappearing as well. And I really want my Dinner (and Lunch, if I can)
