I would imagine nearly every emergency serverce person in the world will be working or on call new years eve, and we thank them for it, but how about us that have somewhat more mundane tasks? What are your plans to stave off boredom?
I work in the IS department of a mid size corporation so I’ll be here most of 24 hours doing backups and waiting for disasters in whatever form they come in. We’ll be stuck in the office waiting for advance word from our worldwide operations and east coast branches to see what will happen. Probably going to be a dull time so I’m going to rent videos of The Omega Man, Planet of the Apes and Soylent Green. I was going to turn my cubicle into a suvivalist bunker but couldn’t find enough sandbags, camoflage netting and clamore mines.
