It took my work computer 15 minutes to boot this morning after turning it on for the first time in weeks, then it installed updates and automatically rebooted, taking about a half hour to come back after that. This is why I only ever reboot my work machine when I'm forced to by IT. Which is why IT forces you to reboot after critical updates. >:)
Then the internet was mostly down all morning. Sadly, this is typical -- the internet connection from work is the worst thing EVER. It's fast when it works, but 6 hour outages are the norm. As in, trying to visit some websites before 4pm or so will usually result in about a 33% failure rate. Today it was more like 80%.
And of course among the thousands of e-mail messages that came in while I was out was a recurring notice that I should fix this one bug as soon as possible... which apparently started being sent about a week after I went on break. Heh.
Luckily, the bug actually wasn't worth getting a SOON marker. Testers are occasionally on crack. Also, it was easy to fix, so I can check in a fix tomorrow (I'm not checking in from a 3-week stale build) and not have to convince them of that.
