    What a way to start the day...

    1) verify verify verify..and NOT from admin station, @#$!@## it!

    From a PC with OUTSIDE network access. I was a Business analyst {field support} and wrangled three hours with an admin on a connectivity fail. He was testing INSIDE the corp network, and assumed that addressing by NAME took him outside, then back in {Despite helping install the redirector in the local domain}.

    2) What idiot designs a system that needs power-off reboot?!!!
    - Oh, wait.... the last company I contracted for. A call center system.... never mind. :x
    - Oh... and an AIX email server.

    3) Welcome to the wonderful world of blade server. Uh.. where do we label those servers, Chuck?

    'I dunno.. make a map and hang it on the rack?'

    'Like last time? No one ever updated...'
    'How about tags?'

    And Director IT said 'take 'em off... look like shit!'

    Why am I not grinning as I type this...
