Technical Difficulties

Okay, seriously, this is one of those days where everything is breaking.

First, my ssh tunnel to home dies suddenly at work. Then my cd burner at work breaks.

Then I come home and notice the Vonage phone blinking as it's desperately trying to connect. I can't ping the server. I can't ping the gateway. I spend a bit thinking my firewall router is bad. Then I fear the NIC inside the server is crapping out. Then I think it's one of the switches. The activity lights just don't look right; something's up.

I run around the house like a madman, systematically disconnecting each switch one by one. Finally, I trace the problem to the TiVo in my room. Why is it that ONE freaking NIC can hose an entire network??!? argh. I hate when these things happen right before a trip because I don't like for my roommate to have to deal with technical problems. Let things break while I'm here so he's not inconvenienced.

AND then I guess I didn't cork the bottle of wine properly, so it leaked all over the place. *sigh* Such alcohol abuse. I still haven't packed, and now I'm stressing. Oh, and I forgot to sign my expense report, so A/P is sending it back for my signature, but of course I won't be there.

Did I mention I still haven't packed?!?

I don't think I'm sleeping tonight. Ramble. Ramble. Ramble.

So who's in NY?? Let's go out and play (when I get there).
