Help...I can't feel my feet!

I spent most of my evening tonight installing software and patches to one of our servers at work. I had to wait until people left the office to get started so that I wouldn't interrupt anyone's work. But it made for a bit of a late night at the office.

It's a Windows 2000 server, so that often means I get the joy of rebooting it after completing an installation. I was treated to at least half a dozen such events tonight...probably more. I didn't count after the first two or three because I was already pretty digusted at that point. The fact that Exchange Server is on that machine makes the reboot process take extra long...at least 5 minutes each time. So needless to say, I spent a lot of time just waiting around.

About the subject of this post... The server is located in our...uh, server room (who'da thunk?). Taht room has hyperactive air conditioning--as any good machine room should. The temperature is somewhere in the 50s. After an hour or so in there, I couldn't really feel my hands and feet anymore. It was making typing a bit of a chore, and driving home was a bit odd for the first few minutes.

I made good progress, but there's more to be done. But at 8 o'clock I was ready to go home. I'll get back to it later on.
