I work in the communications area of the IT organization here, so if IT services (email, course management, etc.) go down, my group dispenses the information to the general public (i.e., students, faculty, and staff). I just so happened to be on call this weekend and this week.
Wouldn't you know it...the darned on-call phone rang right before we were seated at the restaurant!!!! :/ Luckily for me, the outage was so big, our main form of communication was down, lol. I did stay for dinner, enjoyed it, and DH and I played some WoW.
I still need to get his Valentine's Day gift. He was kind enough to give me mine Saturday, but he wouldn't tell me what he wanted. :/
