Day 5 in Bogotá


Me levanté a las 10:00 y salimos para la clínica Santa Fe a las 10:30 AM. A los diez minutos de arribar, nos llamaron para que volviéramos a Colsanitas, porque estaban teniendo problemas. Algunas cosas habían salido mal cuando pusimos la versión vieja de nuevo, así que pedimos que nos dieran tiempo durante la noche para corregir el problema. Lo hicimos en tiempo récord, y hasta me las arreglé para encontrar en qué lugar el script de migración de la base de datos fallaba. Entonces decidimos migrar el sistema a su última versión, esta vez siguiendo mi consejo de utilizar la documentación. Todo salió perfecto, pero encontramos un problema más tarde: los reportes que los doctores producen no aparecían. Trabajamos en eso durante tres horas más y no pudimos encontrar la cause. Después llamé a un colega en Bélgica, quien me dijo que había que instalar otro software, el cual no teníamos. A eso de las 4:00, tomé el control del servidor, y una vez más, volvimos atrás hasta la versión anterior. Terminamos a las 6:20, pero todo quedó andando y hasta mejor que antes. Llegué al hotel a las 6:30, desayuné y me fui a dormir. :-)

La buena parte de la jornada es que fuimos a un mall y comí paella de almuerzo/cena (fue mi única comida del día, a las 5:45PM). La paella era buenísima, y me costó solo $8. La comida es buena y barata aquí.


I got up at 10:00, and we headed to the Santa Fe clinic at 10:30. Ten minutes after we arrived, we got a call asking us to head back to Colsanitas, as they were having problems. We realized that some things had gone wrong while putting the old version back in production, so we requested that we were given some time during the night to fix the problem. We did that in record time, and I even managed to find the step in which that dreadful database migration script was failing. We then proceeded to migrate the whole thing to the latest version, this time following my advice and using the documentation. Everything went just fine, but we found a problem later: the reports that doctors produce weren't showing. We worked on that for more than three hours, but we could not find the cause of the problem. I then called a colleague in Belgium, who told me that we had to install another software, which we didn't have.
Around 4:00 AM, I took control of the server, and once again we backed up to the previous version. We finished at 6:20, but everything was working fine, and it was even better than before. I arrived back to the hotel at 6:30, had breakfast and went to bed. :-)

The good part of the day was that we went to a mall and I had paella for lunch/dinner (it was my only meal of the day, at 5:45PM). Paella was great, and it cost only $8. Food is good and cheap here.
