Since I spent literally the entire day yesterday being a complete bum in front of Netflix, this morning I opted to be a bit more productive by writing a blog post and doing some reading. I need to break out of the habit of waking up on the weekend and immediately kicking back in front of the TV; the inertia is likely to keep me there for the better part of the day.
I just had to revisit a script I wrote about 6 months ago. I almost immediately realized I set this up in the worst way possible, and that I was making about 3 times the number of API calls that I actually needed. A little refactoring, and now it's much better. As a bonus, it now executes in about a 3rd of the time that it previously took.
I spent part of the morning researching how to add our VOIP system into our monitoring solution. I finally had a grasp on what to do and kicked off the wizard to add a new system to monitor... only to get a message that it was already being monitored. Apparently one of my coworkers added it.
I really should've checked that first. 😅
