Crazy busy irritating work day

Which started at six am, and I was still getting emails at nine pm.

Long story short, somebody screwed up bad, didn't buy enough capacity to see us through the end of the year, which is killing some very important projects; but it's going to take 4-8 weeks to get that capacity online.

Meantime, we have to refactor EVERY DAMN PROJECT in the pipeline (about 90 for my group alone, several hundred including all the other teams).

Then once the capacity IS online, we need to swing back over to it.

Seamlessly and with zero risk.

Oh and did I mention one of our primary datacenters is completely out of power and cooling capacity, and that's going to effect several hundred more projects?

The next five months are going to suck so hard.
