Icahn School of Medicine | 26 November 2012

I feel like today is really my first day of work. Of course, I’m sure that my employer wouldn’t be pleased to know that, since I started at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (now the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) three weeks ago; but where I’ve felt mostly useless up to this point, some strange convergence of subconscious force is making me feel like this week is finally going to be productive. Maybe it’s the feeling of rest coming off of the Thanksgiving holiday. Maybe it’s the fact that I get to see my family next week. Maybe it’s foolish optimism. I suppose it doesn’t matter, so long as it gets me to actually be productive.

On the docket for this week:

  • Set performance goals for 2013.

  • Build a disk cache storage system for use with TSM.

  • Enhance the LDAP directory to record a department for each user.

  • Finish a first pass of a new set of user creation scripts.

  • Document how we’re going to provide quota’d project filesystems using GPFS.
