How to tell you've worked at your job a long time

So the power flickered during the thunderstorm this afternoon - more than enough to turn the power on most of the machines off.

Everyone walked around, testing this machine and that machine, getting it all back going. After that people started to just go back to work.

Then it hit me - it was waaaay too quiet. Something big and loud was missing.

Sure enough, the -80 was totally off. Turns out that even though it is on the emergency generator, the flicker tripped the circuit. Disaster-avoided.

I feel like Wonder Woman today. :)
