This was a Very Important accomplishment.
Luckily I don't seem to be in any trouble (working until 8.30 pm on Monday to get the files uploaded seemed to help).
Conversations with my boss went as follows (with some paraphrasing):
(Boss comes out of his office chatting to colleague about Very Important Submission)
Boss: "...so we'll just adjust that last figure, and upload the files. Then we can all come and watch Cath hit the "Submit" button - for the SECOND time."Monday afternoon:
Boss and colleague: (snigger snigger)
(Boss hands me a USB key with the final files on it)
Boss: "Please can you upload these files? I'll approve and submit"Thank you everybody for your (mostly) supportive comments!!!
Me: "Oh, good, because I'm too scared to touch the damn thing again"
Me: "I'm really sorry about the whole thing, I was completely freaking out when it happened"
Boss: "Yeah, you freaked me out too. But it all worked out"
Me: "Yeah... I printed this poster off the BBC website on Wednesday"
Boss: "I think I need one of those too"
And, for no particular reason other than "doesn't this look a bit like the Union flag?", here's a photo of some melting snow on my friend's truck yesterday. With added essence of finger at the top.
