Gettin' stuck at work helpin' people that are 1500+ miles away sucks. Especially when everyone else went to the Christmas party at the local watering hole and turned off their cellphones and pagers. I'm stuck here by myself dealing with this and waiting for responses to come across the messaging system and email.
If it wasn't for my Polk Audio speakers that came with an old SGI Workstation I had at one point, I'd be a much angrier person. The speakers have stayed with me and I snagged a powered Altec Lansing sub and they sit on my desk hooked up to my computer for just such an occasion. No one is here so no one can bother me about volume. So I got some classic Christmas music playing along. Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Earth Kitt, Ella Fitzgerald, Perry Como and even Diana Krall.
Yeah, computer speakers that actually image rule!
