2. I couldn't do STP because they wouldn't pay me OT to do it after hours (i'm salary)
I would be in the HR doghouse if I used that as an excuse, especially since your not doing so contributed to the downtime.
Ya and salary doesn't mean you quit because its the time to leave, it means you stay and do what you need to.
I'm also salary and I've stayed past midnight before working on something.
You should expect any major change to have the potential to require sleeping in the office.
Frankly if someone implemented new switches and didn't apply STP then when this happened they'd be out the door fast.--
