in reply to OT: When to put things live

simon.proctor++ ... that's pretty close to how we handle it. Sometimes we have pushes that would impact customers (database needs to go down because you cannot pre-live) so we also evaluate the impact to the end-user. If it's too much of an impact, we co-ordinate to do the push off hours (weekend or after biz hours). I'd say more than 90% of our pushes follow your rules and about 2-3 times a year I can expect to be working on a Saturday.

    I'll second that... much the same where I am.
    One added thing - whenever possible (and it's not always possible), I try to have the "live" system up and running for a day before announcing it. One last chance to check for... unforseen consequences :-)

[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus we will be glad to have you here more frequently, tho ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
