Hello, Peter. What's happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.

Got the knees filthy on my khackis crawling around on the server room floor yesterday running a cable under the raised floor. And that's why I think its retarded for techs to wear slacks at work.

Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.

A user submitted a high-priority ticket yesterday: "Can't winzip my 19MB file down to 4MB for emailing." Nice. I laughed my ass off. *eyeroll* Users. Can't live with them, can't shoot them.

Yeah. Uh, did you get that memo?

The emergency temporary replacement server which was supposed to arrive at my house Saturday, arrived Monday. The permanent replacement server also arrived at the office Monday. Sans drives. Excellent. They might as well have shipped a slab of beef for all the good it's doing us.

Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. The problem is, I just forgot this one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even a problem anymore.

galinda822 has never seen Office Space and I feel this is an opportunity to purchase the DVD (I have it on VHS) so she can watch it. I really feel that her life is imcomplete without having seen it. Is this wrong?

Yeah. It's just that we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports *before* they go out now. So if you could just remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right!

Rec'd some add'l parts for the new server. A proc, a proc voltage regulator, a floppy drive and a single 146GB drive. Perhaps the rest of the parts will arrive tomorrow? Brought The Cluck to my house to help me load the server in the wife's wagon. Once it was unloaded I reported to Facilities that I had parked an unauthorized vehicle in their airspace and was given a permit on the spot.

"PC Load Letter"? What the fuck does that mean?

Still missing six drives. If I get the parts in today, I'll "plug 'n play" everything in today, else I'm sure it can wait until tomorrow! Picked up MI:3 score today - can't wait to give that a listen!!! Now all I need to find is X-Men 3 and I'll be set...

You see Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.



heh - iTunes Music store gives you 30-seconds previews of songs. Track 24 The Last Stand from X-Men: The Last Stand (iTunes asks, "Did you mean X-MAN?") is only 31-seconds long. One free track! w00t!

Sure - use me as an excuse to make a purchase!

Actually, since you guys refer to it so much I guess it's about time I saw it!

That's always been our excuse for ignoring dress codes and wearing what we want anyway.



"Can't winzip my 19MB file down to 4MB for emailing."

Bless their little hearts.



galinda822 has never seen Office Space

That's unthinkable!

As I am working inside a *ahem* server (I hate refering to wintel b0xen as 'servers') I won't be wearing a tie tomorrow. That's about as much as I can get away with!

You know, I'm not overly fond of Office Space, myself...

One free track! w00t!

*Laughs* I see. I'm not from Texas, so there you go.

My friend also has a slight obsession with it, though, so it's not just Texans, I suppose. :P
