Things I Didn't Need Today

Today has been a day of meetings. Lots of them. I got to my desk for the first time around noon. Since I was meeting someone for lunch I hustled to unlock my workstation, print something, and take off. I routinely unlock my workstation before my monitors wake up, one big swoosh as I sit down.

The problem was that my workstation apparently didn’t lock itself[0]. So when I typed my password I typed it into a window…

…an instant message chat window…

…which was open to a fellow in my Security group.


This is right up there with the time I typed my password in the wrong field while doing a presentation.

[0] Don’t know why. Most people would make a comment about Windows here, I’ll leave it alone.

  1. Yeah well don’t be too hard on yourself. The protein robot is the weakest link. Especially when we are tired, rushed, pre-occupied, stressed. We do the automatic stuff at the wrong time, wrong place. Its what we do.
