My office? Over 100 degrees. Writing and gaming are out of the question; every computer is shut down to prevent damage.
I suffer a mystery medical condition which causes my legs to itch and burn any time they’re damp: Showers, baths, rain, sweat. The mild version of it feels like I’m being stuck with tiny, invisible pins, which makes it even harder to sleep than just being hot. (Doctors the world over have failed to diagnose or cure this for hundreds of people. We expect we’ll only get relief from it when it finally afflicts a celebrity.)
I didn’t sleep much. People have already commented how pale I look.
And repairs might cost us thousands.
No problem, though; I’m a positive guy. There’s AC at work. I owe, I owe, so off to work I go!
When I arrived, my laptop couldn’t access the hard-wired network. Nor internal wireless. At my office desk, I connected to guest wireless and VPN’ed into the work network.
You might already think this is slow, but we have the worst IT. “Slow” describes it about as accurately as “damp” describes a hurricane. Working through our VPN is like sucking frozen molasses through a straw. Not a real straw, but a tiny, hollow stirring stick that isn’t meant to be used as a straw. Imagine trying to be productive.
Worse, once I connected, the software I use for 90% of my work (and provide tech support for everyone else) is broken. Welcome to emergency mode on the day I can’t accomplish jack. Whee!
In spite of this, Life is good.
