Considering how amazingly slow, labourious and downright difficult it can be to get ANYTHING done around this office (courtesy of endless reams of red tape) I have to applaud their speed at which they can stifle communication.

This morning, at 8:50am I received an email from some IT-bot blathering on about ‘non-approved software detected’. The fuckers are, of course, referring to GoogleTalk. One of the few programs I’ve actually been able to download, install and connect to the internet with here at my place of work (an acronym laden with irony, I think you’ll agree).

So, any of you that I invited on GoogleTalk won’t be seeing me around during office hours. Don’t blame me, blame The Man.
