We'd been playing darts in the breakroom. We were most of the way through an abbreviated version of Cricket when the network came back.

Our manager was, but I caught up to her and then another coworker passed us at the last round - we decided to do one more after the network came up. :D

Bahaha, why no... XD I am glad to hear it, though. It sounds like massive amounts of fun and joy. :D Yay for job satisfaction and happy things!!

Heehee.

Of course, just as you were writing that I was exploring a less-happy portion of my job.

Namely, a frustrating lack of official documentation about our code.

Sigh.

Well, of course... ;) Timing is everything.

And -- Gah. *comfort* Is there at least unofficial documentation? Anywhere? :X

That depends on whether "go ask your coworker" counts.

Hmmm... Well, that's often my resource for research... XD So I guess it counts, as long as there's someone to ask.

*snuggle*

You have more patience than I. After hearing at 3:25 that there was no ETA and to expect the network to be down for awhile, I ran off to catch the 3:45 ferry.

Yeah, a couple of our team members had left by then. Of course, ironically, one who had left earlier in the day due to a mild sickness and was working from home was actually able to get online via the VPN and resolve tickets that were rotating around the group because we couldn't handle them.
