4:01 PM: So I stroll in around 3:30 PM in my usual lazy-ass fashion and read this email:Subject: Network Going down for Maintenance This EveningHeh. Dang! I have to go home in two hours? I am so full of the regret. If only I had not tarried in bed Today, reading The Two Towers and refusing to get up.
All internal networking will be shutdown from 6PM this evening, June 15th, until Sunday morning at 6AM. We believe the work should be completed by Saturday morning at 6AM, but expect the outage to extend until Sunday at 6AM.
In other fun news, take this, France! Ha ha! We wave our private parts at you! Then we make movies of them, and you pay to have them waved at you! Ha ha! Mmmm, donuts.
6:40 PM: Tick, tick, tick, tick.... It's still working. I dunno if I should stop working, or keep going until it breaks, or ... ? Spooky. And way too metaphorical about the entire economic job-having situation.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
