It must be broken.

Yet again, the mad-house I work in is having a wee bit of a small problem. Over a week ago, a minor human error caused the entire site to go down. And it's going to take at the very least another week to ten days before it even looks like being possible to start it back up and get things moving again. There is absolutely nothing to do. Except clean the floor with a toothbrush if you were so inclined. I'm not.

But how does this place make money? How do they convince the shareholders that they know what they're doing? I have learnt a few things while working here -

1) Blame others.
2) People will believe everything if you use words like "minor problem", "expect it to be fixed within a few hours barring any unforeseen problems."
3) Blame others while explaining how you weren't even in the state at the time it broke down.

These will work every time. And convince people who should know better to give you millions of dollars to pour after the millions of dollars they've already given you.

I was right - no Stargate last night. Just three hours of "That 70's Show" and "Will & Grace" repeats.

Not happy, not happy at all.

Yikes! But, y'know, strangely, there have been days I've wished something would happen so that there'd be no work for awhile. Perhaps, if someone were to throw caution to the wind and sharpen her pencils, instead of placing them in the To Be Sharpened box... Why, verily, the She-Demon might go insane! Think of the turmoil that would cause! :eg:

It was not aired here in the US this week, either, because of the Thanksgiving holiday. For some reason, all the stations seem to think their viewers would prefer "special" programming when they have weekends off and the time to actually sit back and enjoy TV. They are wrong. I. Want. Daniel. ; )

Perhaps it has something to do with the mid-season hiatus they have here on SciFi every year? Maybe they don't want you to get ahead on eps?? Is it listed next week??

Having nothing to do at work is fun - but it novelty wears off after a while. We had nothing to do last week, nothing to do this week, and shall have nothing to do next week. Heck, at this stage I'd be happy to sharpen those pencils for your She-Demon! :g:

The ratings year has finished in Australia, and doesn't start up again until February. This means all we have to watch now are shows that have usually failed and have already been canned in the US. Stargate isn't listed in next week's TV guide, which I am hoping is a misprint, but I very much doubt it. It's not fair - we are only up to Space Race.

Ah, but not just anyone gets to do that. You must have Team Leader after your name to be deemed up for that task. ; )

Now that, I don't understand. Isn't having Daniel back the greatest thing ever to be thankful for????

Exactly! But, no. SciFi feels we'd much prefer a four-day movie marathon of the cheesiest science fiction movies ever than bask in the glory that is Daniel this Thanksgiving. Inconceivable.

Oy. I feel for ya. We had Evolution, Part 1, back in, I think, August then they broke for their annual summer hiatus and we won't have Part 2 till January! Inconceivable! It's a plot, I tell ya.




Wish I knew how to do the millions of dollars thing. I can't even get the first million. *sigh*

The millions they have aren't that great. There's a lot of raping and pillaging the earth stuff happening. All very un-pc and news-worthy stuff. Ya gotta love working in an industry that ends up in 60 Minutes exposers
