So, things had apparently been progressing too well this week at work. I came in this morning and could not connect to our network drives.
Now this is probably only the second time in three years that this has happened at my current company. Things are much better than they used to be at Kleinfelder.
Kleinfelder had the absolute worst network I've ever experienced.
The way I was told things were set up was that even though the server was in the closet in Pleasanton, the file requests had to travel all the way to HQ down in southern California and then back up to the server. And then the file traveled back that path to my computer. It wasn't too bad when opening a file, but when it autosaved (and you wanted this to happen regularly) the computer would freeze for a few seconds. And then when the network inevitably went down (at least once every couple of weeks), work would essentially stop because you were not to keep any documents on your computer.
Work is progressing to fix our problem today, but I've got flashbacks.
