THE OFFICECO IT CHRONICLES: By B. Thompson (Though I go by Bitraider online)

So some stuff just happened in my department that I just have got to talk about.

Ok, so I work for some no-name little office-firm, right?

Nobody seems to specifiy just what exactly everyone is doing there, but I am here to assist and educate the staff when they are upset that they cannot get their fancy 21st century corporate laptop to open some ancient amiga-era software because "after SaharaOS had that update I can't get to it anymore." As if they could ever get to it in the first place in the past what, 40 years?!



Tech ramblings aside, I have got to tell you about this thing that happened.

Okay, A user's ethernet cord had stopped working because of a quote, "small tear"...


So I elected myself to bravely venture into the warehouse and make a new ethernet cable for the (I can only assume) completely feral user.

Stepping inside I am surrounded by all manner of random office supplies, printers, boxes of spare computers and monitors, and of course, a small stash of ethernet cabling ripe for termination.

I was just about finished terminating the second RJ-45 when...


What're you doing?

Hm? Oh- Uh, just uh- trying out the dictation software for a user's machine. Just making sure that the microphone is operational.

You're trying out dictation software...for someone else's machine...on your own machine?


lemme see...


...ahhhhh I see you're taking after the BOFH. Throw in some old tech references for the boomers and you might have something for the 40+ crowd...What's this for, Thompson?

Well I uh- I had no tickets to why not record a little tale to kill a minute or so. In addition, I minored in English...and...still want to get published so...

Fair, you would be an english student haha. I didn't take you as the creative writing type.



Anyways, I need your help with something, the scanner in break room #4-



I will be there shortly.



Bitraider out.
