    Ok, it all started last Wednesday, my first day of training. I could log onto Windows fine, and my email, but not the companies Intranet. No biggie, they just had to change my password, right? Wrong. Someone went and changed my Windows password instead, and somehow also changed my username. So then I couldn't log into my email, either because the username is taken from the Windows username. So then today I come in and they say I have a new username for everything. Woohoo! I log onto Windows fine. However, the new username isn't even registered with the Intranet, and noone gave me the default password for my email, so now I'm no further ahead. And, the Techlog (which we fill out after every call) is still with my OLD username, giving me 2 usernames for everything, but nothing works!!!

    I'm going insane! Because I can't get into my email, I can't do all of the tests/modules yet, but it doesn't matter because I can't get onto the Intranet where all the answers are.

    yeah, you'd think a building fullof tech support people would be able to support their own tech, as it were [face_plain]

    You think that's something. The other day at my job a squirrel got in the building. You would have thought that little squirrel had the black plague with all the people freaking out and running about, but no, he just had rabies. :)

    If you check through the "Afternoon Delight" thread, you'll see AYBABTU's Greek squirrel, 'Testicles'.
