I’m a part-time student, so I don’t spend every waking moment in the postgrad village, unlike some of my compatriots. While I was away from my desk for a mere couple of days, some cheeky bastard harvested my PC for parts (no really, they actually went over to my clearly-occupied desk, unfastened the casing from the tower, and replaced their knackered monitor adapter with mine).
Just to make it even worse, they left the base exactly where it should be, to leave me pondering why my monitor had no input when I switched on this morning. Even more confusing was the loose monitor cable, with no port for it to connect to.
Infuriating. Rest assured, my revenge will be brutal. Or subtle. Maybe when I track down the culprit, I’ll disconnect something important and obscure, but leave it in place…. Mwhahahahahahahahaaaaa!
UPDATE 2014-09-29: During another of my absenses from the postgrad village, the IT support team located my PC and fixed it for me! Good news. When I told them of the problem, they said it was the most bizarre call they’d ever taken.
