n3m0 arrived at work a bit late, 8:18 AM. Only 18 minutes, that’s not bad. No one seemed to care anymore when he showed up so he was usually late. When he started at the company things had been really busy but the last few months things had been quite slow which gave n3m0 the opportunity to work with on his own projects.
“Whoa, what happened to you?” Thomas asked with a perky voice. I can’t imagine how he can sound so happy when working here, n3m0 thought. He knew from experience that if he ignored Thomas he would just press on.
“I was playing World of Warcraft again,” n3m0 muttered.
“Didn’t catch the hockey then?”
“Pity, was a great game.”
“No, I missed it.”
After a few more questions Thomas found someone else to bother. n3m0 unlocked his computer, checked the work email and opened the Help Desk application used by the company. Boring, boring, he scanned through the requests, nothing important, he thought. The requests could wait until later, one of them was so stupid that he laughed out loud.
That caught Thomas attention and he started walking over with his do-you-have-a-joke-to-share face. Thomas turned when n3m0 picked up the phone and pretended to make a call. Instead he opened up Notepad++ and loaded the asp file from his usb stick.
n3m0 was so tired that his ability to code suffered and it took a lot of coffee and close to two hours to get the script to work as he wanted. Not wanting to hack from work he figured he could take care of a few requests. He reprogrammed his telephone so he wouldn’t be unavailable anymore and tabbed to the Help Desk application.
Even though n3m0 only did any actual work half of the time he was there, he still was the guy in help desk who closed the most requests.
During the afternoon the only thing that kept n3m0 from falling asleep was the phone which kept ringing.
When the work day was over and n3m0 finally came home, he was still tired but since he had waited all day he figured he could sleep later.
n3m0 surfed to the Regal-Pens website. Time for some hacking.
