Food Porn Friday

Yesterday was incredibly stressful... the server was down when I got to work in the morning. I had people standing in the hallway sipping coffee when I got there... "Hey. Server's down". So I'm moving briskly toward the modem and router closet and as I stand on the stool to check the signal, people are staring in the closet asking "is it fixed yet?" I try to be patient as I know how big an issue it is for people to be "down". So I give the standard "No, but I'm working on it". Determining the signal is fine, I climb down, grab the keys for the server closet room, and head down to see what's wrong. I just get the door open and start to log into the server when I get two people walking up to me asking "So what's wrong with the server? How long will it take to fix? I have an email that I have to send this morning." Deep breath...I'm just trying to figure out what's wrong folks and until I do, I don't know how long it will take to fix.

We were down for about an hour and by the end of the day, I think it was barely a blip on the screen, but in that time span of "the technology on my desk is useless without a signal" it really sends folks into a tail spin. It only happens a couple times a year, so I tend to forget how tense folks can get... including me!

Thus I was really looking forward to relaxing at the pub with TOG. We didn't stay too long last night and oddly, no one around us was eating so I only got shots of TOG's and my food.
