there's an alarm that has been going off for twenty minutes that prevents me from thinking.

The internal remote access server we use at my company is called SEAM portal.

When people want to log in from home, often times, they won't say "I'm going to SEAM portal in, when i get home"  Or "I'm going to remote in, when..."   they say

"I'm going to SEAM in, when i get home"

Say that aloud.  And its not a minority of people, most people verbalize this concept in this fashion.  I am aghast at this on going double entendre that apparently no one but me notices.

my boss said "ping" four times in a meeting this morning.  another person at the meeting said it once when responding to him.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

What does it mean?  Post the four sentences he used it in.

i can't recall verbatim.  all sentences were variations of:  can you ping this person or i'll ping that person.  my understanding of his usage was that it meant contact & communicate with no specific medium of communication specified.

i don't think you'd ping someone in the same room with you by voice, though.  i think some distance and electronic means of allowing communication to transpire across that distance is implied.  also i think you can probably only ping someone to initiate communication.  if someone pings you, i don't think you responding is also pinging.

What about the guy who said ping in response?  Did your boss say "hey carl you need ping this certain person and fill them in on the details" and carl said "OK boss I'll ping that person"? What wouldn't he just say "OK"?

yes, exactly.  she just repeated the usage.  she probably felt that "ok" wasn't sufficient to demonstrate her capacity and commitment to pinging the indicated person.

The people I work with this year spend an incredible amount of time complaining about other people. 

Ironically, there is almost a perfect negative correlation between the amount of time my coworkers spend complaining and their own competence.
