So I finished up everything I could get my hands on on Friday, and planned to dive in today.
After I came in, today, I spent the first hour of the day fixing a bunch of things for other people, then re-contacted IT to ask for an ETA on the issue. All the normal stuff got taken care of, then I waited a bit for an answer.
Turns out that the issue was actually a missing document. Nothing had been put into the system for me to work on by the client. Normally, this is an easy fix. We contact the client. The client re-uploads (correctly, this time), and we move forward.
But today is not a normal day on the Internet. (You may have already seen news about some websites being taken down by a hacker.) So all day today our clients have been having problems getting files (and emails) to us, and we've been having issues getting things back and forth. And my workload has been *really* light for a Monday. Way too light. Creepy light. Day after Thanksgiving light.
If this continues tomorrow I may need to bring a book. You don't think anyone would notice me sitting at my desk reading a book all day, do you?
