So I headed to the cubicle I've been working in. No-go. There were 2-3 people trying to get the router setup to work. No, wait - trying to get the system to work without the router in place. Apparently something's going rather wrong.
Fortunately, it's not my problem.
After they started working remotely, I was able to set up my laptop and proceed with more transcription. I'm finally just 8 pages or so from done with that stage - I'll hopefully be able to figure out how to write tests again when it's finished.
I finally got a call from synkitty in midafternoon, and was able to drive out and drop off the phone charger in Sunnyvale. Though, I have to say the process of finding her at a defined intersection was rather similar to the whole back-and-forth we had getting to that point. Apparently "Stay right there" is an equivalent phrase to "Keep moving"...
Just to make sure I was there if they got around to working with the router, I stayed until 6:30 - then tried to make it home to vote. 101 was backed up solid, so I ended up taking a series of back roads (Lawrence to Stevens Creek to 17 to 280 to 10th to Senter...) in order to make it.
So I voted at 7:40. It was kind of amusing - the election workers were getting a little weird, probably because of too much time doing very little.
Then sat in my room, munched Doritos, and watched election results.
Today I need to do some final purchases and packing for the New York trip - which reminds me, I need to start some laundry...
