I brought a sandwich but I ate it long before I really had a break to enjoy it. It was more eat a piece in a few seconds. Eat another piece in a few seconds.

I need to be on the LAN to make my work the most efficient flow as possible, but there are no free cables in the lab. Yup a computer lab with no LAN ports, not even on the master machine.
