I have so deserved this weekend.

Part of my job is doing media monitoring. Thankfully we buy the service that does the actual searching for us. Anyway, this morning I started my day noticing that no media hits had registered during the night. Our oh-so-lovely subcontractor had accidentally deleted our whole account, which meant that only did I not receive the hits that I desperately needed by certain deadlines today, they had also wiped out all the set search parameters and all archived hits. OOPS.

So I used my day doing the most immediate monitoring by hand, which means going through every important newspaper's online versions and crossing my fingers in hopes that I wouldn't miss anything too relevant.

The subcontractor used their day with digging up our information from their backup hard drives and annoying me with their phone calls. For example, together we found out that the backup system had not only lost the newest search parameters set, but also searches in completely random fashion.

My work; not really that hard, but sometimes really, really annoying.


Also, a random fact that I learned today: Listening my iPod, the bass sounds better when I have my mouth closed.
