27: sore throat from servers

I've been stuck in the server room pretty much all day starting at around ten this morning. The air conditioning has made my throat sore, and I'm worn out from the sheer amount of noise I've been subjected to all day. (For some noise is a distraction, for me it literally tires me out.)

Usually I would be going home at this time of day, but I suspect I may be stuck here until the network is fixed. I'm not stuck here alone, but that doesn't really help the feeling of claustrophobia which is currently stealing over me like a bad omen.

Sadly, going home may not be until a lot later this evening (or early morning). I can't really tell. So far we have not had the kind of luck we expected to getting the network going again.

I'm really ready for it to be Friday...

19:06: still at work

I'm actually starting to feel pretty gross. We've been in the server room where it's been around 80°F all day, and now the sun is setting and hitting the west side of the building where the server room happens to be located, making it even hotter.

Plus I'm sweaty, dusty and my feet are killing me. I don't think I've been this tired in a while.
