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).
