Seriously, is there nothing more interesting going on in the world right now? If this is indeed the case, that employees don't get paid before they log in, then go and buy a friggin' timer, or get a mac or linux, where these things are easy. Better yet, keep the machine running all night long at the expense of your employer! BETTER YET: hire somebody to walk around and turn on all the machines PRIOR to all the regular employees coming in!
Disappointingly uninteresting story.
