installation day

8th August 2003 permanent link

Thursday was Day One of a new consulting gig - actually not so new, back with a client I’ve done work for a couple of times before. Go and visit the old team; learn interesting & useful German phrases such as der Täter kehrt zum Tatort zurück (“the criminal returns to the scene of the crime”). Nice to know one’s work has been appreciated in one’s absence. Apart from this absolutely job-relevant cross-team liaison activity, it’s Software Installation Day. Hurrah. It’s a Windows shop. I do so enjoy watching Windows reboot. (Good job I have the new phone to play with). At least they’re on Windows 2000 now - last time I was here they were still using NT.

So, what are the basics that we need for a minimally civilised existence in Windowsland?
