Well I usually
work "extra" of my own accord
just to get ahead. However, I found myself with a surprise
task put in front of me, and so I needed to go into work tonight after dinner
in order to stay all caught up
However, I got into the office, and found an e-mail from one of our best developers, sent from someone else's account. His computer was hosed (it would not even boot, or do anything when the power button was pressed). So much for the plan. I was hoping for something simple, easy, and quick (e.g. cord not plugged in, power switch loose or one end or the other not plugged in well, etc.). This was not the case. Oh well. We had a spare sitting around with similar (mostly) hardware, so I moved the user's hard drive into the spare... presto! Well, almost. Only thing left to do was switch the network card out so that I didn't have to load a new driver.
Ahhhh well. I didn't get my extra task done, and tomorrow there are meetings I'm required to be at, so I guess I'll be going to work tomorrow night....
