Today is my third day in the city of Saginaw, MI. With about 60,000 residents, it is a fairly average place from what I've seen so far. Yesterday me and my coworker toiled for almost a 12 hour day at the customer's site. This trip involves replacing an old server with a new one, and moving all of the old information over. Its not very exciting, so I won't get into specifics. The sight of the old server left an impression on me, though. It was installed around a decade ago, and is the size of a large mini-fridge, only deeper. We had to open it up to do some drive switching, and I just had to take a couple shots of what it looked like inside. I believe that this machine has experienced some unspeakable things.

You know on tv, when someone digs up a coffin and opens it up for whatever reason? They sort of hold a rag to their face, and recoil for a few moments. Same sort of thing happened here.


So, these guys were definitely due for an upgrade. Anyway, today I don't have to go in, so I'm considering my options. It looks like the closest trip to the Canadian border would take less than 2 hours, but I think that I am feeling a bit too lazy for that. We will have to see what happens.
