ok, about 10 minutes into my shift at work today, the network completely goes down. meaning that no one could access any applications (since they're all served thru the network), print anything, or access the internet in any of the computer labs on campus. so we get out the big whiteboards we use to notify people when stuff is broken, and we write on them, "EVERYTHING IS DOWN due to network problems. update at 10" the lab cleared out pretty quickly, but it was amazing how many people came in, walked directly past the sign without reading it, straight to a computer to try to log in.

surprise! network login doesn't work when the network is down.

so we moved the signs closer to the building entrance (up the ramps, for anyone who knows the layout of the main lab). then we sat there at the help desk watching people come in the door, read the sign, and then come up to us and ask if they could still check their email or print something out, or if were closing for the night.

this went on for the next 3 hours until the network came back up.
