It’s amazing how dependent we’ve become on computers and the internet in my office. At 11:00 a.m. the network crashed. No e-mail, no internet, no access to the servers; nada. And since a lot of the work I do has to be shared, just about all of my work is on the server. So I did what any modern office administrator does when this happens: I stared at the screen like a dog waiting for someone to open the door.
No, not really; I cleaned up my desk, de-fragged the hard drive, and caught up on my filing. But it felt like it.
