Opening

I woke up late this morning. Not that this is an unusual occurance. As a matter of fact, it happens quite frequently. I drove to work faster than usual. It was nice until some left-lane enforcers blocked my way. I was trying to top my old top speed of 135. It wasn't meant to be today; the fastest I could go today was 132. Very disappointing.

I got to work just after 9. No one noticed. I don't know what I'm doing here. I just sit and wait. I try to learn as much as I can in hopes one day that I'll be useful.

Maybe today will be the day. I sit eagerly in front of my laptop checking the status of the equipment. "ALL NODES ONLINE." Nope. Nothing today.

Disaster!!!

Suddenly, disaster struck!!! The node called 'WebServer' suddenly went down. I opened up a browser, and attempted to access our web site. Firefox told me that there was an error connecting to the server. Panic started building up inside me.

I opened up a terminal and pinged the server's IP. Nothing.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

Hackers. They had probably not only brought down our web site, but stolen all the credit card numbers, login names, and passwords, too!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!
