Where the hell is Mahwah, NJ??

I have arrived in Mahwah, NJ today! I will be in the area until Thursday afternoon.

I will be working in Tuxedo, NY (just a few miles from the Sheraton Crossroads [photo left]) on a disaster recovery test for the next 24-48 hours.

Hopefully, once done (I am estimating Wednesday afternoon), I will have some free time to trek into New York City, and perhaps around my father and grandparent's hometown of Haverstraw, NY.


Note, the photo is the actual hotel I am currently in! It is the tallest building in the area and quite beautiful too! I'm on the 20th floor, facing northeast (towards Haverstraw, NY) -- it's quite a breathtaking view!

My availability will be sketchy over the next few days, but if all goes to plan -- I'll be at the New York Eagle on Wednesday night! :-)

What a blast from the past... I worked for a food vendor that catered the Tennis Classics there back in 1992... And DR in that area sounds like you're working with IBM....

well My stock portfolio thanks you. I did the whole DR/BCP thing with LexisNexis and after all my legwork and research with Sungard and IBM, they just wanted to go with their own datacenters in other locations for DR. I love it when people ask me to take 6 months of my life and analyze and research stuff only to do what they wanted to inspite of my recommendations...

Such is our life -- I see that happen all the time, but you got paid for your work, and IBM got paid for their time (I'm sure), so the end customer is the root cause of the waste (which is the case 90% of the time!)

I was just saddened that BCP/DR prices went through the roof post 9/11

What the market will bear -- and post 9/11, D/R was something many people learned about quickly...
