    Screw that, if the power it out why do you want to do work?!?! And legally, if it's not back up within 2 hours they have to send you home.

    But hey, you probably get brownie points for being the good employee who works through anything! Make sure to remind them of this day when your annual review comes up =)

    Wireless Tether (rooted)

    Where did you get that legal statute from? lol

    I don't mind, to be honest I'm doing the same thing here right now that I'd be doing at home (forums!)

    Got it from my HR department! Go figure. It probably varies state to state, but that's the case here in VA.

    Interesting! I'd contact my HR department ... except the email is down... and the entire network is. Which means our phones don't work. And since everything I have to do today is on AutoCAD....... :D

    I thought that 2 hr rule was similar to that mysterious unwritten rule everyone had in college where "the professor is more than 5 minutes late so the class is canceled and nobody gets absences marked.... seriously guys its a rule... right?"

    Power is back! Laptop is charging up.

    I'm so happy I decided, for no particular reason, to throw the old Dell notebook in the car this morning!
