Today was not a Tube strike
but I'd already planned my week as if it were going to be. So I telework
Usually, my laptop crashes, my ISDN line fails and I can't get a PSTN connection to the mainframe. Today, however, despite some apparent contention on the mainframe connection, everything went incredibly well. I got everything I'd planned done and more. None of the nefarious security restrictions got in the way (uh, okay, I know some workarounds that aren't strictly kosher).
The only downside is I need somewhere nicer to work... which brings us back to the major rewiring work I mentioned at the weekend. Some day in the future, I'll be able to telework from my desk, rather than a table in the bedroom. Then my back won't ache!
