I've fried my poor engineer.

He passed me on the next level, so I've spent the entire afternoon doing everything that I've already done, just to prove it had been done.

And my new, friendly, happy engineer?

He says he's never seen anything like this.

He disagrees with Special Projects guy, who thinks it is the server, possibly because the idea came from Special Projects guy. I would agree with SPGuy, simply because the progressive nature of the problem supports his theory.

Perky guy hasn't ruled out a virus.

If it turns out to be a virus, four levels of support owe me a written apology, posted in public.
