    I'm a network administrator so I am doing server maintenance remotely and watching my machines run. I'm kinda like a fireman, I'm on standby doing maintenance work until something breaks and then everything goes crazy. :D

    I should be coordinating the loading of empty shipping containers of various types for various ports to several vessels working at our facility in the next few days, updating a few interchange agreements between trucking companies and steamship companies so that that the appropriate trucker can pick up import cargo for the appropriate steamship line, coordinating the rail billing and then delivery of 10 empty 40' high cube dry containers for one particular customer, checking on yard availability for some sale units that I have a customer looking repo offdock, and I have an inspector on sight who wants to look at the same units, checking on various other special handling requests for several customers, checking on what to do with some units I've been noticing coming into inventory over the last two days that are obviously cross leased between to of my customers, checking every email that pops in - printing a hard copy and taking care of it immediately if need be, or placing it in my 'to do' pile if it is something that can wait, answering the phone when it rings and trouble shooting problems at the receiving gate as well as taking requests from customers, hopefully soon trying to get to my pile of lower priority email requests which is probably an inch and a half tall if it were in a neat stack, making a fresh pot of coffee and trying to get to this cigarette that I want to step out and smoke that has been on top of my desk next to the lighter for the last 2 hours.
