When everything has been quiet and there have been no complaints it's either a sign that things are going well or that things have gone completely tits up and everyone is too scared to let the relevant people know, for fear of being blamed, or something.

It'd be nice if I could leave my network to tick over for a few months without someone screwing with it. That isn't to say the individuals have been gits, mostly, it's more a collective fuck-up. In retrospect I should have called far more often to see what was going wrong, but sadly I have neither the time nor inclination to do so, so I won't be making a habit of it. Perhaps I'll demand a weekly report or something to prevent such screw ups.

I don't mean this to be harsh on any individual, it's more by inaction that a problem that started as a minor tech problem has spiralled out of control causing chaos. Yes, we'd like to upgrade our internet connection, yes, I'd like all and any changes documented, no, don't change that without telling me. What I've essentially got is an enormous mess of cables, settings and people, none of whom seem to know what's going on. Think Andrex puppy.

Fortunately, I seem to have a knack for figuring these things out, but the paperwork is going to be a nightmare, hopefully I won't have to do most of it!

Oh and why the arse-buggery-fucksticks did I bother moving everything over onto a new laptop only to find the staff member in question using his old laptop with the new one sitting next to him? Seriously, retire the old one, you'll just end up needing to lug two machines around.

There's probably a good reason, but I'm too busy being annoyed right now to find out what it is! It can wait 'till Monday! Now, someone get me a sandwich!
