Confessions of a Techno Twit

I confess. I may have got the hang of the computer, more or less. But I'm still trying to catch on to the telephone. Today was not a good day, technologically speaking. Got to my job at City Hall and my computer was off. This happens when there's a power outage, like there was on the weekend. No big deal. Except, I couldn't seem to get the thing to turn back on. Lucky for me, we have a full time I.T. guy on staff who came and carried my baby away in short order. I used an alternate laptop for most of the day, and since our files are all kept on a central server, there was nothing lost. By the end of the day, my computer was returned to me by said I.T. guy with a brand new power source installed inside. Or something. Anyway, it worked.
Meanwhile, though, I'd been trying on and off to send a fax from the good old fashioned fax machine. The recipient's line was busy, busy, busy. Finally I decided to just call them instead, but when I dialed the number on top of the fax cover form, my co-worker's phone started to ring. Wait a minute. That's our number. And that fax number is ours, too. I'd been trying all afternoon to fax myself.
Good grief.
Just another example of your hard-earned tax dollars at work, folks.
