Locked out

On Friday I was in the office working late, because our Dell TL2000 tape autoloader decided to die. During my support call with Dell, I was back and forth between my office and the server room, and had kept my key-card in my hoodie pocket.

At one point during the evening, as I was trying to manually eject the magazines from the TL2000 (no simple task for a single person), I took off my hoodie, left it in the server room, and then promptly closed the door behind me.

Luckily I was able to unlock the door through our security server; small IT with a wide range of responsibilities saves the day again.

This isn’t the first time this has happened to me, so the moral of the story is, keep your keys and access cards on your person, in a pocket in your pants. I guess the other moral of the story is, I don’t think very clearly at 10:30 PM.
