There seems to be a Foreigner Free Zone in effect or something. Even the always Foreigner Friendly Carefore was devoid of whiteys yesterday.
Carefore is where you go to get a (albeit sad) dose of Western culture. The food court. I avoid these things like the plague at home, but when in such a foreign culture (like Egypt) it is nice to stop in and have some bad chinese now and then.
Also, people seemed to be just a little extra crazy on the roads lately. Must the warmer weather, bringing people out of hibernation.
In other news……
Working with windows network shares over a VPN is like dying of thirst next to a mountain spring. I have a fucking high speed ISDL link for fuck sake, and trying to copy a 51K excel spreadsheet feels like I'm trying to download the fucking Gutenberg library.
To copy a file – follow these simple steps:
- Open the base share
Hehe – better than trying to open the file directly in excel though – fucking thing still hasn't come back yet.
Don't even get me started on actually logging into this infernal thing. Its currently taking about 5 minutes to process my login attempt. And no, its not because i'm not connected to the office LAN, it did it there too.
oh well – gives me time to submit this entry :)
