Systems Failure

I had to laugh this morning. I came into work, bells ringing, people running around, machines short circuiting.

Power short, apparently.

Which meant our whole IT system in the Asia Pacific region was off in "Broken Down Land".

Its funny how everyone gets into a complete flap when they are unable to use their computer. Its so traumatic for some, that they sit at their desk staring blankly at the screen like they are waiting for the world to end. What did we all do before we had major mainframe systems?

I survived it. I did what any other Legal Counsel would do in these circusmstances --- go for coffee.
