Today, I was supposed to have the day off. So I slept in until 10:30am. I awoke without be shaken awake. I awoke thinking “I slept all night… and most of the morning.” I awoke noting that my left ear was not ringing.
I got out of bed, fed and watered the cats. Then walked back to my computer, where I find my phone blinking incessantly. I log into my email while checking the phone messages and find multiple SMS’s about problems with SAM…
So, I wake up, get a shower, have a bowl of cereal (Lucky Charms!) and head out the door. I get to work and find Cassie walking about. She tells me all about the fact that SAM didn’t work at all this morning. TLN knew there was an issue, but did not bother to contact the Libraries. Lovely. I walk downstairs, and check my computer to see what emails are awaiting me… nothing new… I walk out and talk to Josh about it. We note that all the computers have the big RED MEDICAL sign on them and state that the computer is unavailable. Josh asks me “Should these signs about PINs be on the Express workstations?”
We walk over and I look at them… Well, of COURSE not. There’s no PIN usage here. So I reach over to pull the sign off… laying my hands on the monitor…
POOF. SAM TURNED ON.
I walked back and told Allison that the computers were working again. She asked “What? How did you fix them?”
I said “I laid my hands upon them, and they were good.” then struck a Superman pose.
I AM TECHNOLOGICAL JESUS. I HEAL COMPUTERS BY LAYING MY HANDS UPON THEM.
(at least until 3:15pm when I had to come back because the computers were tossing people every 20 minutes… still… it was funny in the moment)
Lovely day off.
