An unusual day ...

Greeted at work this morning by the news that multiple servers were down and IT were in and working on it. Oh joy! We keep virtually nothing on our PC drives ... they exist merely to house the individual copies of various programs. Everything is in the various network drives on the servers. Did such tasks as I could do sans server access but that well ran dry by 10:00 a.m. So since I have a ton o' overtime hours banked that I need to use up and word from IT was that it was likely going to take most of the rest of the day to get the servers running again I got the okay to go home.

So YAY!!! Picked up some lunch stuff on the way and settled in to read the second half of "Convergence" (got halfway through last night)

And now I'm done and it was SO GOOD!!!!! and I have to wait a whole year to see what happens next with the multitude of new plot threads set up in this volume. Lots of Uncle Tatiseigi (who knew he would have become so loveable?), Bren and his aishid have crossed the strait to the human "reservation" (Tano may need an intervention as he's discovered a human food even better than pizza), and the joys of trying to get useful and practical things done fast before committees can spontaneously form and bog everything down ...
