My kingdom for a thermostat (since i have no kingdom, nor a thermostat, i figure that is a fair trade)!
What news eh? I managed, in my drug-induced bout of lucidity yesterday, to not only diagnose, but completely rebuild a mail server. Yup, you heard it here first folks, Dayquil gives you amazing prowess when it comes to diagnosing and repairing technical problems. Apparently, they had hugemongus power issues on Sunday, so much so that the power supply, case power switch, motherboard, raid card, AND network card all went pop.
So yeah, I survived, but it took me like 6 hours. Pretty much rebuilt from scratch. Not a happy camper.
One of the women in the office there tried to kill me, I swear.
Granted, she was trying to kill me with niceness and concern (which is so rare, in my day-to-day) but i felt the effects for some time. She heard me coughing from all the dust and computer debris, she came by with a handful of cough drops. Thankful, I immidiately began dosing myself (and my cough subsided nicely) with one about every 15-20 minutes. About an hour after she dropped them off, this woman came by just as I was about to pop my fourth of fifth drop and asked rather casually if that was the first one I had had since she had been by. I explained that it was my fourth or fifth, and she freaked out. Apparetly, there is a Dayquil cough drop out there - you are only supposed to take one every two hours or so.
No WONDER i was so tweaked.
Today has been both ponderously slow, and piranha busy. On the upside, chellez secured a location and go time for the co-bday festivities of timaeusdaspirge and myself. Anyone in the NYC-Metro area with a hankerin for 80's tunes, feel free to add yourself.
Why chellez dog does not look like snoopy, as illustrated by the supreme authority on the matter.
For clarification's sake, please note the distinct lack of 'coon eyes, mutant nose, and vacant expression.
