Information Systems Agency

Another wonderful day at the Defense Information Systems Agency. After upgrading the Outlook clients over the weekend, they've somehow been able to bring the network down on Monday.

As previously bitched about, all our applications are stored centrally, so as to maximize the likelihood of a network packet collision crashing a program at the most innoportune moment. They have, however, made our Outlook app available via the oh-so-hostile Outlook Web Access system. Can I log into OWA via my personal ISP account? That would be NO.

With no applications available, we may as well not be here. We can't even open up our contacts and get phone numbers to call, since the contacts list is stored on the same server that is unresponsive.

And this is the same bureaucracy that is in charge of the Homeland Big Brother Agency. Great...
