    Slow day

    Very slow day here, it is almost like everyone is out traveling somewhere for something.

    Re: Slow day

    I have been sitting in Denison, IA since 9am this morning waiting for Frontier Communications to set up our connection. I just want to configure my firewall and leave...This has been a long day for me as well. I love when telecoms say they will be there between 8 and 5. I still have to drive 1.5 hours home yet.

    Re: Slow day

    You ever have one of those days where it seems like whatever station you turn it to, at whatever time, is a great song? Today is that day for me. Lots of great 80's tunes on the Bus today.

    It doesn't help that the weather is so beautiful outside here today, either.

    My theory is that on Fridays my work desk is traveling just under the speed of light as time almost comes to a complete stand still here.
