Through all this, I found it amazing that everyone stayed in good spirits. Everyone couldn't work on the issue at the same time, so during some portions of the night we loaded up the PS2 with Tekken 5 and commenced with the ass kicking. After moving some of the servers downstairs to our 'makeshift' server room and testing, everyone left at 2am except for my boss, the CIO and one of the programmers (they all stayed the night). This morning when everyone reported back at 8am and throughout the day, everyone was still in relatively good spirits. I'm sort of in awe, or should I say I'm 'awful' =D.
Anyhow, back at CMU whenever we pulled all nighters we would walk around like zombies and be all pissed off. These guys don't get paid extra to stick around, so I guess their positive attitude during and after the entire ordeal is a testament to why I love this crew so much. Lord knows if I was under the gun like that and was skipping out on time with my wife and kids I'd be one P.O.ed bastard.
