DAY 2 -REFLECTIONS OF MONDAY NOVEMBER 17TH
Well, it was one of those days…raining cats and dogs, dark and cold outside. good thing my office was warm. Everybody showed up for work, even Bonnie drove from Hamden CT. Office was busy and it felt good. It was so busy that at some point I had to leave just to have room.
Not sure where to start.
Proteck emailed for revision. Comment which I was sure should have been there they were swearing was not there. I did this repot 5 days back and in my mind it was done and over. It took me some time to open it, remember that day office was very busy… so once I opened it I sew they were right ( as much as it’s hard to admit, that AMC may be right once in a while) comment was not there! But I knew I wrote it, since I had draft version of it in my word documents. So what happened while converting file to MISMO file comment got wiped out from report. I though OK, as much as I hate going back to reports for revisions, I thought this is not a big deal… however …… how little did I know!
I added the comment in again, I was going through the report again, once more to double check that everything else was there, all of the sadden to my total horror, I saw photos were gone, 12 pages of photo addendum which were there when I unsigned report, were all gone! …and there was no autosave file again. I called WCA with the slight hope that they might locate file, but they could not find my photo pages. It was raining cats and dogs, I was sitting at the computer putting back photos when Monica returned from lunch break.
As she sat at another station, she announced : “there are no comments on this machine .” As a matter of fact there were no comments on any of the machines. We decided to reboot the server and all machines, but we forgot that Maria, our bookkeeper was also working off of the server in the other room, when we rebooted the machines, Maria was almost crying with the fear of the fact that she might just lost all her work.
Nothing helped. Monica decided to call WCA, I had to leave.
