Today and the rest of the week was supposed to be a mini-vacation. For today, at least, it's been cancelled.
There's a thing that hasn't been working, a very background sort of thing that no one notices until it is really needed. It's been a problem off and on for years and for the last couple of years, it hasn't worked at all. Because it's so much a background thing, of interest only to Engineering, it's been difficult to much attention to it. We replaced an expensive and difficult to access component of the thing, and after a very sort stretch of proper function, it hasn't been working at all.
To troubleshoot all of it, I need the assistance of a couple of specialized trades. Co-ordinating them has been tricky.
Yesterday morning, unexpectedly, one of the specialists told me they were going to be available today. By midday, the other one was scheduled and I'd rescheduled that day of vacation.
I sure hope we'll be able to get this thing working.
