It's really amazing how much I can't get done when the internet goes out at work, because I can't test the game (it needs the network!) and I can't look anything up. Oh, and the phones stop working, because they're voip.

In Jeff's game, I thought that he had totally taken a first edition D&D creature (updated to 3E somewhere, I presume) and imported it to Star Wars, but it turns out that it was actually the module designers who did it! I was amused.

It just occurred to me that in ancient Rome there were probably times the potters were sitting around and bitching,

"Man, can you believe the aquaducts are out again! How are we supposed to get any work done when that thing springs a leak like every other month. This clay isn't moistening itself, you know. And even once they get it fixed it will take another few hours for the water to make it to us. 'Oh, aquaducts are the latest thing,' they told us. Well, our dependence on technology will be the death of us. I'm grabbing a bucket and going down to the Tiber."

"I'm grabbing a bucket and going down to the Tiber" is my new code-phrase for "I'm going home because my computer doesn't work".

...never mind that back then they measured the time things took to get done in, like months where now we get annoyed if [$favoriteoftenvisiteddistractionfromworkwebpage] loads in >5 seconds.
