Our e-mail server has been down all day and I'm starting to hyperventilate. I took a full day of rest yesterday and never logged once onto e-mail, plus I only checked it once early Saturday morning. I must have close to 200 messages waiting for me and no way to access them. Worse, I have a number of replies I need to get out to people today, not to mention e-mailing a few completed article assignments to editors.
I am soooo much a "I want it when I want it" sort of person. And I want my e-mail NOW. I called Road Runner's hotline and after listening to automated messages that had me make seven different selections (I counted - press 1 for English, press 3 for maintenance trouble, press 4 if you have already tried this solution, press 2 if you would like to speak to a service rep, press 7 if you mean you want to speak to one now, press the square of pie if you really, really need to speak to a rep b/c you must first prove to us you are worthy of our time...). Anyway, the message I finally got to before I spoke to a CSR said that all of GSO was having e-mail trouble, they're aware of it, they're working on it. That was at 11:30 this morning and it's now just before 4 and still no e-mail.
On the bright side, I've gotten a ton of work done today, which proves my point from an earlier blog that I am, indeed, and e-mail addict.
And I am desperately craving a hit...
