Work not working leaving unable to work
Tried to log into my work computer remotely this morning to find I'm unable to connect, next I tried to connect to the VPN so i could at least access the shared folders to do some of the other busy work to wait until someone else gets physically into the office but that appears to be not working as well.
So... I guess I'm stuck. Our main office is 1200miles away so I won't be driving over to turn the screen saver off or whatever it is that happened.

I'm thinking that even though I'm not working I should still be getting paid, since I would be working if someone hadn't turned my computer off, or messed with the security settings on the vpn...

Get your bum over to the LHBS and make it a productive brew day.

too bad my LHBS is 45 min away, I've only got about 35min until someone gets in.

Do you not have a single phone number of a contact at the main office??
But yes I think you should still get paid for sure. It's not your fault they're stuff is screwed up. We still get paid if the power goes out or something and we can't work. Not our fault.

its a west coast operation and I work out of central, so I start at 8:30 here, but generally the phones remain forwarded until 8:00 there. No direct lines. very small company.

Oh, ok. And what's with the thread title? :D

Work's systems aren't working which leaves me unable to work

I have had that happen - the IT group deployed updates and the machine shut itself down. I usually just call the office and have someone saunter over to turn the machine on.

My phone company screwed the pooch on switching over my home office # from my previous employer to the mag I'm working for now - so I'm lining up all my calls for later this morning when they sort out the mess.
