I called my supervisor this morning to do some additional troubleshooting and he put me through to IT. Apparently one of the others in my "class" had the same issue - and it was on Comcast's side. Yippee!! It took about 10 minutes or so to get it corrected and get me up and running. It had something to do with the IP address being incorrect or having to be reloaded or something. Makes no matter to me, really. I thought it would take longer or that I would have to go into the office.
My first call from home was kind of strange - just because I'm not used to the quiet or the environment yet. As the day has progressed, I've gotten more used to it, but it's still very different. I didn't miss the commute this morning at all. I got up later than usual and still had time to take a shower, have breakfast and fix my coffee. I didn't get dressed right away this morning, because I didn't have to. I stayed in jammies simply because I could! On my first break, I tossed on jeans and a t-shirt. At the office, it's business casual, so I can't do that normally. At lunch, I fixed myself some bacon and eggs - another thing I can't do at the office! I have the TV on, but it isn't very loud and I haven't been paying much attention to it. I've been tooling around online. I think I'm really going to like working from home.
