1/2 Full?

I often get an Instant Message in the morning from one of the Project Managers that I work with asking "1/2 full today?"   The reference being: Are you having a good day?

Today was a 96% Full kind of day. I normally work from home (WFH) as a telecommuter.
The reality is that I am only in my office cubical a couple of days per
month. I typically have my IP phone forwarded to my Home Office number and I am online
and available via Instant Message so people can get me just like I am on Campus. --Today
I was in the cubical maze to meet with people face-to-face.

Today was a fun day... I met with one of our Unix teams for an hour this morning...
then I spent an hour talking with one of our mainframe guys about zLinux (Linux on
the IBM Z Series Mainframe) and how it compares to LPARs on our Power5 AIX platform.
We did some white boarding and knowledge transfer about Distributed Systems and the
Mainframe. It was fun to be able to draw pictures and talk architecture vs. the typical
project level architecture that I work on. (I am not a die hard Unix guy but I work
on a LOT of Unix projects. Nor am I a mainframe guy, but I am trying to become more
familiar with the platform options.)

Don't get me wrong... I really enjoy where I work and what I do.... but today was
one of those days where at the end of it I had a smile on my face and really enjoyed
how I spent my time.
