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.

We just went to VoIP for our phones, also. We are the backbone for a lot of people so we don't normally "go down" but next week we're moving from a 0C12 to 0C48 fiber from one of our main backbones. That also happens to be the backbone we use for our VoIP.

So, while we're busily hustling with our provider to upgrade we won't be able to take any support calls to tell all the slackers that don't read their announcements that we can't take calls during the outage.

Always a catch 22.

That sounds more like a special bonus than a catch-22 to me. =)

Well, in a sense, yes.


But being on the consumer relations side of it and having to do damage control for the idiots later I am somewhat sad at the development.
