A Really Great Bad Day

A few days ago, I got a frantic email message from a programmer and blogger I know. She mass-mailed her whole circle of friends with a desperate message, something like “The crossbeam’s gone out of skew on the treadle, and it will take several days of work to get the server back working again! I won’t be able to answer email until I get this solved! I am having a REALLY BAD DAY!”

You have got to be kidding me, a bad day? Surely this is the sort of technical challenge that some people live for. It is all a matter of perspective. This is when you get to show your true mettle, solving a technical problem that few other people could understand, let alone solve. It should be a great day!
