I just spent an entire day being the tech support guy at work. Our main IT person is in Atlanta, and never comes to our office. So when I came in and our phones and Internet were down, I did what anyone else would have done: I turned it off and back on again.
But it became a nightmare. I couldn’t access any files I needed. Nobody in our office could. Nothing. Happened. Today.
And then, a light appeared: a technician showed up to fix the problem right when I was about to leave. But he discovered that the fiber had been cut somewhere. So I went home having done nothing.
Seriously. That’s it. Such a waste of a day. But I got to watch Cowboy Bebop when I got home! So, net positive.
See you, space cowboy.
