Out of the Blue

Well our phone problem was cleared up yesterday, so thankfully this won't end up being one of these protracted mysteries. A different technician came to check things out, and thankfully he started from scratch, so he was not distracted by the previous tech's misdiagnosis. It turns out that there was a short in one of the phone wires in my office... the problem cleared up when I unplugged everything from the jack, and when he asked me if I had a splitter plugged into it I had to laugh, as this one jack has a three-way two-line splitter, which has a two-way splitter plugged into it, as well as a couple of DSL line filters, and of course, a whole bunch of wires. The silliest part of all this is that when I figured out which wire it was, I traced it around to, well, nowhere, as it was not even plugged into anything. D'oh!

The guy in front of him is holding what looks like a crowbar! AWEsome!

Actually it's a torque wrench... wtf he's doing with one at this point is what I'm wondering. "Should this really be this loose? Hey, who the hell forgot to spec out lockwashers on this shi...."

BOOM


It'd still do a number on a headcrab though.
