1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Indeed!


    Yeah, I'd imagine it's even worse in health care, especially if you're dealing with vulnerable people.

    I am sympathetic to the fact that sometimes people just have to come in, especially in management, but there's no good reason for him to be here today. There's nothing pressing to be done, and he's not nearly important enough to be here at all costs.


    Agreed. The mornings are terrible. Getting up today was nearly impossible. Now that I have a kid who will be in school in a few years, I also think about kids going to school when it's dark out.

    Still, I'd even take just sticking with the DST schedule year round if it meant we don't have to do the stupid clock shifts.



    I think that was the case early on, but I know for a fact that he's been told repeatedly that it's perfectly okay to take the time if he needs it. I've told him they're really great about it, and I've heard our boss tell him it's not a problem at all if he needs the time. He just has this weird stubbornness about it. I was talking to him earlier, and I said something along the lines of, "man, you look like you feel terrible. It really is okay if you want to take some sick time." His response was basically that he'd spent all weekend sitting around the house convalescing, and he really wanted to get out for a while. I really wanted to respond with, "well, that's great and all, but I'd really rather you not come get the whole office sick just because you're bored."

    I just made a batch of coconut vanilla ice cream last night, would be rough watching other eat it while I watched. I'd lose some serious quality of life without a dash of cream in my coffee.

    You are all a bunch of whiny civilians talking about DST.

    When I was deployed I was up at 2 or 4 am everyday and walked uphill both ways to my truck.

    When you email a proprietor a question about a product you are going to buy and they take forever to get back to you. You'd think they'd be all over that question considering the product is a couple thousand bills.

    I think I screwed up my alarm clock or something when making the DST change (or just managed to get up and turn it off across the room without realizing it). Woke up with a "HOLY SHIT WTF" feeling at 10:40 today....wet down my hair and hopped in a cab.

    Think it worked out ok though...the big boss on this project is working from home today and there hadn't been any direct requests yet so maybe nobody even knew I was late until I sent an email saying I was on my way.
