Today was a Monday. And in proper Monday fashion, I got this screen message when I booted up at work this morning. Note that I am instructed to not touch the keyboard or even the mouse as this could screw up the installation of whatever drivers they want me to have today.

Also note that the "next" button is just itching to be pushed. I was in a quandary. So of course I called the help desk who promptly told me (in heavy Indian accent) that I needed to reboot. Apparently other users had been calling in all morning and some sat for thirty minutes waiting for something to happen.

I rebooted.

I got the same message.

Fortunately Chuck Norris was in the office today and he just stared it down until it corrected itself.

The rest of today was pretty much like this.

(You knew I had to work Chuck in. This is one of the worst pictures I've ever taken, but since it was the only shot I took all day....)

Chuck Norris never reboots. When Chuck Norris boots, people die.

Perfect capture of what we, at our office, refer to as an AAAAARGH Moment. When Chuck is done at your office, send him over to ours. We need some help.

I like this weird pic. Speaking of Chuck, I found something I think you'll enjoy. :)


Chuck vs Bruce

All that chest hair... I think Kyle might be his son.

So, was it a prank or a Trojan virus or something other than an annoyance.
I like the blue background; I should do that sort of thing ;-Þ
