Yippeee! Remember that feeling when your computer is working at warp speed and free pizza shows up at your desk? Of course not… uh!

It’s sad but true. We actually take our computer productivity for granted. We might actually remember panicking and screaming at Josh to go into the server room and “work his magic” because everyone’s computer is down and customers are waiting. (poor Josh) Remember that day? (Josh does)
