It don't get much easier than this.
The office's day today was hobbled worse than a one-armed wallpaper hanger with the crotch crickets. Our computer network, you see, was having a sort of crisis. It refused to work properly.
This sorry state of affairs is nothing new. It's so old news that I was tempted, sorely, to start a whole new blog, dedicated to nothing more than mocking our IT department down in Red Stick, but no. I haven't the time nor THAT much inclination to debase (rightfully) the ubergeeks who are supposed to keep our network running.
But I will, however, with the help of Vulgar Wizard, post today's first, and likely not last edition of
Irrelephant's Fun With The IT Department Dept.:
Today's Fun: Slowness With Modules
What They Said--
NOTIFICATION: Performance Issues
TIME/DATE: November 28, 2006 10:00amCST
Users are experiencing slowness in various modules. IT is currently working to resolve the issue. An email notice will be sent upon resolve.
What They Really Meant--
Once again, the server that we use to play World of Warcraft crashed and we’re forced to use the server that handles all the important programs for the offices to continue game play. We’ll restore full power to you, the underlings, when we break for lunch. Or tomorrow. See, we fixed the server last night and we're all really tired of Mountain Dew and d20s.
Tomorrow's Exciting Episode--
CAN THEY DEFEAT THE EVIL LAVA TROLL AND GET OUR SERVER UP?
Tune in and find out.
