So, it looks like they'll have the walls repaired in time for us to start moving people back to their offices on Tuesday. That's the plan, anyway. Meanwhile, we're still over in a temporary work center elsewhere in the building.
On the plus side, my computer seems to have survived its swim, so I'm back to working on a real monitor and a full-sized keyboard. That's right, I can now put a finger on the keyboard and only hit one key! I'm very excited about this.
And now I find myself wondering what it would have been like to be the SysAdmin on Noah's Ark. Assuming Noah had remembered to include a server room and put data ports in the living quarters, of course. I imagine it would have been pretty rough - goats eating the cables; rats and snakes and things trying to curl up against the back of the servers rack, where it's nice and warm; and, of course, Noah and his family constantly complaining about their connection speeds. ("Why do you even bother to connect, Noah? All you ever do on that computer is play Solitaire...")
