That computer is not good for this.

How to say "That computer is a piece of shit" in polite business language!
I checked over the [] conference room in preparation for the client call on 3/21 and 3/22. This is what I found:

The large conference telephone is plugged into the dialer telephone system and ready for use. Dial [] and the three-digit booth number to log in to monitor.

PC needs to be replaced:
  • The current PC in this room takes 15 or more minutes to fully boot up.

  • A web page, such as a monitoring log page, takes 2-5 minutes to load.

  • The PC takes over 8 minutes to log off.

  • This PC is either: a) not fit for any modern computing task and should never again be used for any task that requires a timely boot up process, a timely log off process, or anything involving a web browser, or b) it is so riddled with malware that it needs a complete reinstallation of everything. As it runs telnet just fine, I suspect the former and recommend a replacement rather than a reinstallation.

After the PC is replaced, someone will need to test that it can connect to telnet [] and http:// [] monitoring/ before the client call.

Disc project commences. <voice="Troi">I sense ... hostility. </voice> Namely, the PC back there won't let me log on as me, and has no network access to the stuff out here, and I can't hit the internet either. And that's what keeps me sane for the discs.

Fuck, in short.

On the bright side, there was rain. There was ... I think it's "sleet", when it's not quite hail, but there are mushy ice crystals in the huge drops of rain?
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
