John Buck 41: Spiralmonkey: When I asked him why he didn't just do that himself and hit the fire alarm he said it was an IT thing and he thought he should call us first. This guy has a degree, a mortgage, a family, a car - how does he even manage to operate on a day to day basis?

Damn, he's bred.


lol... he has a car, there is still hope.

John Buck 41: Spiralmonkey: Real Women Drink Akvavit: yobbery: OlderGuy: I guess no PW on the secondarys yet....

No, they're locked down. However after thinking about it I think I know how this may have happened.
Up to this point I've been managing access lists to restrict traffic in and out of those subnets. About a month ago a new guy in security was having trouble allowing traffic in to a specific host. He didn't know I was using access lists. I bet he loaded a rule set and then when he pulled it out he forgot to set it back to permit all traffic.

lysdexic: This week was close.

Yeah, it really blows when nothing seems to go right and it's all because of stupid shiat. It's never anything exciting like an equipment fire.

As someone who has worked in kitchens for the overwhelming majority of her life, I am kinda an expert in that department. Believe me when I say you totally don't want any of that type of excitement. Ever.

I work in IT, software developer, and at my last job I got a somewhat frantic call from an accountant saying he had a problem and although I wasn't a help desk person I'd written the last update to his system so could I come and see what was going on. When I got to his office there was an acrid smell before I even opened the door - his PC was on fire. Actual smoke and flames coming from under the desk. I fetched an extinguisher from the corridor and put it out. When I asked him why he didn't just do that himself and hit the fire alarm he said it was an IT thing and he thought he should call us first. This guy has a degree, a mortgage, a family, a car - how does he even manage to operate on a day to day basis?

/that's my fire in the workplace story.

Here's mine. A couple weeks ago the co. that owns and maintains our motorized dumpster had to weld a crack in it. They did...w/o emptying it first. Smoked like there was no tomorrow. To top it off our facilities (mis)manager says "Gee, I'm glad no one hit the fire alarm!"

REALLY?


Oh, FFS. I'm sure it made sense to the guys who were doing the welding, but it was probably the "I'm here to weld it, not empty it" kind of 'sense'. Ms Manager (as they shall forever be known regardless of gender) just needs a good whack to the head. I don't know how things work where you actually work, but how it goes down in a kitchen is if you see smoke and it ain't a line cook having a bad day with some toast, you IMMEDIATELY pull the alarm and shut everything down. Nothing resumes until it is determined there is not only no fire, but also that there is no immediate danger of fire - so the smoke must literally clear. Maybe things are different in other work environments - I dunno. We're a bit touchy about fires in most kitchens, ya know. :-)

Here, have a cat.

Just so we're on the same page I agree with you. I'm sure the idiot in question didn't want to be bothered with the paperwork if the fire alarm had been pulled. And as for the welder not checking first to see if it was empty, that's just industrial-grade stupid.

Good Meowning! Eli is being decorative, taking his morning baf next to the orchid.

Going to be a chore filled day today. Need to clean, do laundry, " gently" encourage my son to clean his crud up so he is organized to go back to school. Not taking him today, dining commons are not open. The logic of opening one and not the other eludes me!

Benevolent Misanthrope: The Ice Queen: What a sucky Caturday this week :(
Uncle has been given just days to live, cancer too much.
Anyone who has any of those "FARK Cancer" pics, feel free to pic, will probably be loading my Facebook page up over the next few days.....

My sentiments exactly.  Fark cancer.

Happy Caturday!

Awww, come on.... you mean you don't enjoy cleaning up all the yellow powder blown everywhere?

I did enjoy spraying it. Called it "the reverse flamethrower" to give it militaristic qualities in my own mind. I left the clean up to the dish room crew, which totally worked out because when a fire starts in the dish room in a bare corner where there is not even a cable for any equipment, it kind of tells you that they did something they will never admit or tell, but means they also will say nothing while being compared to an incredibly unintelligent and very ugly horse penis in Norwegian at high volume while they are cleaning it up. It was one of the perks of the job, I guess. Also, I did not realize I could swear like a Viking that easily when I was really mad until it came out of my mouth like that.

/got some Spanish and German in there, too IIRC
//they only understood the Spanish
///and the intent

Cat doing it's impression of me right before one of my very rare, but also very scary, verbal explosions of rage

I want to piss her off just to hear her swear!  I don't know anyone who speaks Norwegian, would be fun to hear!

I am so sorry for you loss, been there, done that and it's really hard.

I am so stealing "annoying twat waffle" - I know some people who so deserve that term.

I am beyond devastated. yesterday my son had to make the hardest decision we pet owners have to face. His courage was more than I would expect from a 19 y/o young man. Toby was a sweet young dog,RIP you good boy. After returning home I discovered that my beloved best friend of 8 1/2 years, Scruffles, was in respiratory distress so off to the emergency vet again to see a second loved one be helped over the bridge in the space of 6 of the worst hours of my life. RIP Scruffles. I know it will get better in time but right now I still can't stop crying.

God morgen! I've been awake for HOURS and am tired and cranky and owie - but not owie enough to take the heavy duty pills. Suckage! Bring it ALL on or leave me be, dammit! I've decided to go to the store and buy more baking supplies instead and then maybe I'll be owie enough to take the heavy duty pills. If not, I'll actually start baking. Then I'll get so tired so fast I'll fall right back to sleep in no time flat, so either way, it's the closest to a "win" I'm going to get right now.

I hope everyone else is having a good day, and if not, that it gets better - or at least as good as it can be and the sads and owies and sicks are behind you as quickly as possible.

Easter is coming up next month. Apparently that means it's time to dress your hedgehog. I'm going to need a hedgehog...
