Chief Cook and Bottle Washer here for a 10 person company. This includes internal and external co-lo/client machines as well as coding web solutions that the design teams come up with. The biggest solution to going crazy is planning your time. And planning time for a crisis. ;-) You need to make sure that you plan for maintenance to all the machines under your care. Otherwise a machine will fail and it could have been noticed if you were checking them all out regularly. Also make sure that people schedule with you to get your time. Minimize the "this will take just a second" stuff. There is time for that, but stick to your schedule as much as possible. Lastly when making your schedule make sure you prioritize between Important and Emergency Emergency Non-Emergency Important These Come First Second Tier Not Important Second Tier Third Tier (Read a few of the Covey Books, 7 Habits, Putting First Things First.) You don't have to be a slave to your schedule - maybe you just need to plan on a week to week basis. But if you don't fill up your schedule with the important things, the un-important things creep in and take over. -- Anthony Baratta President Keyboard Jockeys "Conformity is the refuge of the unimaginative."
