It was a hectic day after a tragic day when we did not successfully perform our presentation better. Our trip to Badak this time, we had socialized new application system (actually not new, but upgrade from the old one) to all user at field area, and there will going to be another within this month.
The cause was simple, one of the network links between Jakarta and East Kalimantan was down. So of course the available link was crowded with all data that usually split, divided or shared. And it was all happen while we were demonstrating the application live.
Can you imagine that the application suddenly did not perform as well as we prepared before?
For me, it did not matter, I’m good to excuse and handling such situation if I were performing this presentation 😛 . But for the presenter, panic mode went on.
But after all, the pain was paid. We did successfully presenting our presentation. The night before, me and my team was preparing to move our application and database that were located at Jakarta to Badak, so we could prevent if the link went down again.
Well… that was a good experience for me. Next time I should prepare another plan if anything is not running as well as we want it to be. Such as plan B, plan C … plan Z, plan AB … plan UV, plan UW, and so on… Hmm … it seems like a spreadsheet. 😀
I’m going to tell another story about how to tell other people what you are thinking about.
