'Cause it's breaking me up and bringing me down

Someday, I swear, it's going to happen that I have a good sound idea what to do at work, and logmein will allow me unfettered, speedy access to my work computer, and the work computer will not be doing the spontaneous rebooting that it's so prone to doing, and there won't be some minor problem making the people at work freak out that they insist I have to deal with first. Today is not one of those days and I wonder sometimes if I'm ever going to have one again.

The core problem today was a networking problem causing stuff to not work. This is, as far as I can tell, the same networking problem that was plaguing us a couple months ago, and that is entirely a server configuration problem. I don't touch the server configurations because I don't know anything about how to configure servers. Someday, maybe, they'll even believe me when I tell them it's a server problem that they have to work on because they do the server configuration work. But again, today is not one of those days.

As usual for a Thursday night/Friday morning, my humor blog's got a new major piece. If you added it to your Friends page or if you read it on RSS you knew that already, but if you missed it here's what's been happening the past week:

Trivia: During the planning stages IBM estimated a total market of about 250,000 units for its original (model 5150-style) Personal Computer. In fact there would be individual months building and selling about that many systems. Source: A History of Modern Computing, Paul E Ceruzzi.
