(no subject)

Work really sucked yesterday.  At about 10:30 AM, our phones and network went down.  For no immediately discernible reason.  I'll spare you the diagnosis details and cut to the chase:  a sub-switch that a few computers and phones ran off went back and got stuck in "broadcast" mode.  The resulting "noise" drowned out all the traffic on the network, including our IP phone system.

It took about three and a half hours to diagnose and another hour or so after that for me to complete the fix (I had to go buy a new switch).  "Lunch" consisted of two Jack In The Box tacos at 4 PM (I didn't eat more due to the looming proxity of dinner time).

On the plus side, I made a really killer veggie tortilla soup for dinner.  It rocked.
