BOSS:down stairs on to the first floor. take the elevator down and once you are out follow the signs that untill you master server room.

LOL! I started my morning reading your post and remembering my own first day at work. Exactly the same thing. EXACTLY.

Once I went downstairs and stole a box of installation CDs from an IT guy's cube. I brought them to my cube and never returned them. You know what's funny? The guy still doesn't know. That's how lazy and TOKHMI these people are. Most of them are from middle east too. It's like they hate other people. WTF man?

That was funny as hell!! You rocked the boat pretty good for the first day. Now you will never get anything form the IT guys!!


BTW, since you are so free with your own stuff like installing a 160GIG drive in your work computer, you have any other equipment lying around your house you don't need?

agha khorus,
unfortunately in the computer world things laying around wont be any good after a year or SO.

like if you have 2100 RAM it wont work very well with currently 3200 RAM.

or if you have a 7200 RPM hard drive it wont do much good putting in a raid with 15000 RPM hard drive.


As any mechanic or electrician has some spare parts at home. I do too.

What do you expect, you are in a computer/technical field. If you were in something like Marketing or one of those commerce related fields, hot ladies would sorround you everywhere.
