Between Trump's... "win", Quasi's death, work stress, the willpower needed to be aware of and keep track of everything the Republicans are trying to do to fuck this country over, unseasonable weather, my grandmother's multiple encounters with cancer since November, lack of quality social time, other work stress, and now the passing of [ profile] takaza, I could be somewhere much better mentally than I am.

It takes so much to keep fighting, and there are people who face this kind of fight every day when the world doesn't seem to be falling apart around them. Please let me be as strong as them.

All Alone In The Fight...

Work has been stressful for the past few weeks due to so high-level restructuring resulting in a lot of new people coming into our area of in-person support.

Part of the restructuring involves eliminating the geographic divisions as entities. Each of the 4 geographic divisions had it's own IT manager. As part of the restructuring, there would be three operational IT divisions, each with a nationwide scope. One of those positions was filled externally, leaving 4 existing managers to fill 2 positions. My boss, being the junior in position by something like a decade, did not feel confident that was going to land either of those.

He last day was Friday the 17th. We were warned on the 12th.

At 9:30 this morning,I was officially informed that my fellow contractor was no longer with the company. I get the impression it was involuntary.

He covered the larger of the two main sites full time, while I rotated between it and another and was only at the large one twice a week - Tuesdays and Thursday. We had a new person starting at t he large site this morning, and a contractor converting toe full-time which required an equipment change.

Guess who was getting the frustrated emails. For an hour and a half.

They're interviewing potential help tomorrow. Even fast-tracked, it will be a week before someone can start, and about a month before they're reasonably independent.

Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...
