H1N1 (the virus formerly known as swine)

With all the coverage of the swine, er, H1N1 flu outbreak, might be a good time to find out what your companies procedures are in case of a pandemic outbreak. And have a talk with your manager and find out what the realistic expectations are as far as staffing the data center, NOC, desktop support, etc. Most companies want anyone who even thinks they might be infected to stay home, but the IT functions have to keep chugging along as always. If you have remote access, but haven't used it in a while, this would be a good time to log in and make sure your client version is up-to-date, and changed passwords or passphrases have been updated as well and you can get to every area of the network you need to if you should have to work from home.
I telecommute twice a week anyway, so I know I'm good. =-)
