Back in work after five days off (using up the last of the annual leave). ‘Thank heavens you’re back’ was the unanimous greeting, ‘we had to deal with the I.T. Department.’ Computers in the office were causing difficulties, the boss got locked out of the terminal in his office, a new patch came out that they couldn’t implement, so I was missed.

I.T. are over-run with the various changes so it takes them a bit of time to get round to sorting things. I wouldn’t dream of invading their territory when it comes to Network Problems (I know nothing of networks) but when it comes to the Windows terminals it’s a lot easier for me to try and fix the problems, rather than go through the process of contacting the Hell Desk and then waiting for them to come out.
