wheeee!  
So, my co-worker asked me to reset a wireless router in the warehouse today. Mounted near the ceiling. Almost 40 feet / 12 metres up. About 6 times as high as my fall off the ladder. "Ask the warehouse guys to get you up there."

So I got into a safety harness and rode up almost within reach of the router, when the cherry picker reached its maximum height. The operator brought it back down, put a shipping box onto it, had me climb up onto that and sit on my knees, and up we went.

It was more exciting/fun than scary/don't-want-to-break-more-bones. It's nice to know a little fall off a ladder hasn't made me less adventurous vertically.

Oh, I talked to tech support for the router, had them poke at it remotely, went up *again*, and finally determined they need to come poke at it personally.

My boss let me know that he wants to be informed before I go off and do something like that on my own again...

That is really cool. Glad they made you wear the safety harness.

That was a scary posting to read.

So... who decided it would be a good idea to place a router on the roof? What is up there that needs routing?

I can imagine that. Good thing that you got a professional operator who knows how to do stuff like that for the cherrypicker.

wireless router, so to get the best signal in all areas of the warehouse, the best location is usually on the ceiling of the building...
