No sick days, but our team did undertake 'project world cup', an entirely unofficial, no-budget undertaking that involved:
'Borrowing' a server that isn't being used at the moment
Installing a USB TV adapter
Installing a free-to-air digibox
Running an illicit coax from the aerial splitter in the roof above the suspended ceiling into the computer room
Running an illicit audio cable back along the same route to an audio amp and speakers concealed under a desk
Patching the aofrementioned server into the video matrix so we can select it on the 54-inch plasma screen as a device to be 'monitored'
It's been a tremendous piece of teamwork - pity our football team can't follow suit...
