My Precious

So the past 3 or 4 work days I have working off-site at a client's office. The first day I get there they give me this empty cube that seems twice the size of my normal cube. I have a completely barren desk except for my notebook mouse, a few papers and a pen. I am kinda liking the feeling of this new work space.
So I plug in the network cable... switch on DHCP.. and let's test my connection. Google opens. Hooray! Let's open IM and laff at my co-workers stuck in the office... ERR.. IM doesn't work. Dang. OK.. I will e-mail them. Open Outlook... Checking mail... checking still... hmm.. hasn't gotten my mail yet... ERR Port 25 blocked. Double dang. OK... let me access my work's web based mail client... ERR... doesn't work... Hotmail... ERR... oh wow... those stupid IT guys... they blocked hotmail but they didn't block hotmail.passport.com... I am going to be able to login... ERR. Freak. I am hosed. Ow wait... there's no way they tought to block IRC... ERR wrong. Triple Dang.
Luckily I brought a long a sampling of my MP3 collection. The first couple days I didn't think I could use my headphones... but today I pulled them out.
OK.. so back to my precious... I can't stand that I don't have my e-mail in my Outlook. I have calendar events that I want to enter, and have it synch with my wive's calendar. I want to be able to filter throu my spam, and have an address book to look at and know that I have friend's. But without all that... I just feel unconnected. All my power is gone. It's like I really am alone, in a cube... that Greenday song "All By Myself" that's at the end of their one CD runs through my head.
It's almost unexplainable this emptyness I am feeling. I just tried to explain it to my wife... she doesn't get it.
Anyways.... we went and saw a taping of the Jimmy Kimmel Live show tonight in Hollywood. It was actually a REALLY good show. Guttermouth was the musical guest. Tammy Fae (no Baker) was the guest, and Collin Quinn was the guest co-host (I think the show is going to rotate co-host everyweek (great idea!)). The show that we saw get taped tonight may actually never air. It was a "dress rehearsel" of sorts for the show... they taped it as it was a live real show. Made sure all the equipment and everything worked out as it should. As I understand, the possibility of it actually airring is only around 60%... which to me is crazy cos it was a really good show... I didn't think Tammy Fae could be an entertaining guest.. but she was.... for the Guttermouth fans it was kinda lame because they thought they were going to see a full set, but instead were treated to only three songs. Two songs were scheduled for the show, but the band just kept on playing so the kids got a third song, and then after that the crew turned off the sound system.
OK... well I gotta go find URLs for all the different things I mentioned above.. So I am out.

Are you still at that client's office, all disconnected?

*sigh* people don't get it, it's the connectiveness of any sort that makes offices productive. People do occasionally need to take a break and check on their lives. The watching needs to be done by the bosses to prevent abuse of such things, that is all.

How's life treating you Greg?

I have semi-connection now.. using PC Anywhere to tap into my web server, and from there I can e-mail, IM, IRC, or whatever. It's still lame cos I want my Outlook on my notebook to have all my e-mail, and with this method it doesn't have all my sent messages being tracked.
