I've been here like 2 hours, and I've already accomplished more today than I did all day yesterday. This in spite of the fact that we had a fire alarm go off the second my butt hit the chair. I almost went straight home after that. Kinda glad I didn't though. If I had phone service in my new apartment, I probably would have worked from home today, but then I would have missed out on all the politics I've dabbled in today : service ownership, what it means to rewrite things, and the difference between "My boss said..." and "This is what's actually going to happen". *sigh*
The boss man usually does such a good job of filtering out the politics. I hate it when he's out sick.
I've already dealt with three "DHCP problems" today. One of which looks like it's actually a minor WINS issue, one is our ongoing battle over the lease DB file *yawn*, and the other appears to be a network problem... my guess is it's a cable.
In addition to carrying the group pager, I did some '-admin' work for news (why the hell did they feel the need to create the 'codewarrior.*' heirarchy? this should be under comp.*), dhcp, and majordomo this morning. Looks like I'm gonna do listserv for Peg next week. This work stuff is starting to be a lot like work. And all this before I've had my morning's caffeine.
Had a nice lunch with my Bro. We gossiped about dad for a while. I like havin' Wes 'round... I'm gonna miss him when he heads back to school. It's quite amazing that he manages to be at least as cynical as I.
