      Maybe it's like grey goo and will end up consuming all matter in the universe

        Power cut earlier

        It only lasted long enough for me to notice the laptop screen had dimmed, observe that the little green LED on the power adapter had gone out, check my phone (plugged in next to me) and confirm that it also wasn't charging, try a light, try the bedroom light, then go through to the kitchen to try that light - which came on, and just then I heard the chime of the iMac powering back up

        No further outages since, so I've taken a chance by putting the washing machine on; cashmere jumpers, hand wash cycle.

          The guy in the truck staring at the screen has his light on.

          I had a good look at him earlier and he actually looks like a nerd. I suppose you have to be to operate a robot...

              If it wasn't for social distancing I would be over there with some children to ask what he was doing.

              Best careers advice is actually meeting people who do random jobs you have never heard off. Now how did I end up in IT....

                  I ended up in IT because it was less boring than Accounts

                    I think I met too many people in IT on the piss and they were normal. The only ones I met in offices I temped in where the sys admins and desktop support. The sys admins were interesting to talk to as they explained how they spied on people. Oddly I didn't go down that route...

                      How long is the cashmere setting?

                      That'll take a while.

                      Putting stuff in the tumble drier on "wool" takes about 5 minutes & it comes back out as wet as when it went in.

                      Some of the systems guys at Ye Olde Sloughe of Desponde were distinctly odd, but that's me as the kettle calling the pot black.

                      Or something.

                      Apparently I tended to frighten them.

                      I think that threatening to chuck stuff in the dock tended to give them pause.

                      I've never worked in IT.
