The all-nighter

I am rolling out some software at work tomorrow and that requires me pulling an all-nighter tonight. I only have to do this about once a year and if I make good progress on the rollout tonight (when my work won’t affect anyone else) then it will make my day tomorrow much, much easier.

So the plan is roughly as follows:

8 PM: Watch the Yanks trounce the Red Sox yet again.
Midnight: Watch Entourage and Deadwood
2 AM: Begin work on the rollout
6 AM: Head into work as usual

If all goes well between 2-6 AM tomorrow morning I will be a very happy (albeit, tired) camper.
