No it could be something to do with a server alteration this morning.

Maybe you could make friends with the system administrator and mention it to him. He might be able to fix it. First of all you should buy him a caske, give him a hug and buy him a "world's best system administrator" mug. Also worth mentioning Apple Macs, Linux Red Hat and a few other technical things to make you sound technical before asking him to alter any settings. Maybe you should wear an "RTFM" t-shirt and dress as a class-A nerd too if that's what he's like.

I suggest you get another job straight away.... :thumbsup:
