CAB and h.i.m.

November 25, 2006 jeansdream

Yesterday at work, the colleagues talked about an “elevated” engineer, Jeannie, who came as a consultant from “Eye Bee N” to our project to run some critical issues. Some commented on how she exercised her project management skills in a straight (almost arrogant and rude) manner. I didn’t work with her directly when she was on site. From others’ reactions and comments, I sensed how she carried herself at work.

Then, in my dream last night, she came into the picture. (This is quite usual for kids, or me, that something unusual happened in the day, they dreamt about that at night.) I was on a CAB (Change Advisory Board) call, explaining to the CAB chairman what these change requests were about. His French-accented English with a very soft and gentle tone was soothing. In one change request, the description went like this: “Jeannie requested to add h.i.m. to this directory” (which was a unix path) and some how I saw my Big Bro’s name associated to this ticket as a co-requester or something. Then I was asked to explain what h.i.m was. “What the heck… I don’t know!” But this ticket was associated to my Big Bro, so I must help! Then I said, “Oh, it’s some kind of (hardware) memory that is HA (high availability) compliant but on an interim basis. The path was a mount device that needs more memory.” Then the CAB chairman was satisfied with my answer and the change was approved to be implemented. 😉

    Your big bro is so lucky to have you as a sister. Plus the explanation just sounded so plausible. (smile)

    This “h.i.m.” only works in Jean’s dreams. 🙂
