azurelunatic: Teddybear that contains ethernet switch.  (teddyborg)
When you think about stuff on the internet, where do you picture it being physically located? Even if you know it's not really how things work, is there a place you imagine websites and social media posts sitting before you look at them? If so, where is it?

A heavily air conditioned white room with large racks of equipment and a zillion cables and blinking lights. Some of the equipment is running programs that have been touched by people I know. The room is in a building that has one or two pieces of large construction equipment digging outside, ready to take down both of the redundant connections to the rest of the internet. There is an angry man with no cranial hair and a lot of tattoos with a mallet in a control booth, berating and occasionally beating people who interfere with those connections.

So I get ingrown hairs/blocked pores/assorted woe, in and around my upper thigh area, generally as a herald that menstrual woe is about to rain down out of my very angry uterus. I have "adjusted", in that I generally no longer hit the ceiling and curse audibly when I notice this, I merely get cranky.

Medical shenanigans. )

Between the well-timed virtual hugs and lunch, I became usefully human, and set about stampeding through my inbox. Whee, work.

We'd been going to meet up with The Other Guy for happy hour or something, but it turned out too many of the assorted other dudes could not make it today. Therefore it was bumped to Friday, and Purple and I left at a not-terrible hour and chatted in the parking lot. A car pulled up; it was Mr. Tux, asking why we were here so late. We redefined "late" for him.

There's a love meme on, one of the self-nomination kinds that evades the third-person pronounery that I usually find so fraught in the nominate-others sorts. My thread: http://radioaches.dreamwidth.org/81108.html?thread=1190356#cmt1190356

Over last week the ant profusion at work was on the decline. I was cheered. I was still squishing them at a rate of about 4 per hour, but that was much better than previous.

Sadly, Polka-Dot Researcher has left the company; I'll miss her. She's been very sick for a while; she came back briefly with visible pain patches on her injured shoulder and then went back out again. I'm sure there's a story but I don't know much of it.

Rather a lot more of other things! )
