    Local government mate. We told them they needed SP3 ages ago but the bods in charge said they wanted outlook and IE8 rolled out first. Dont know why we bother having meetings and suggesting things when some muppet who knows nothing about IT is calling the shots!

    Blimey you're behind a bit :ermm:

    Doing all the test work for rolling out 7 at the moment - delayed due to NetGear announcing that they wouldn't do an upgrade to the SSL VPN box we use, to support Windows 7. So had to wait until I could get a replacement in the budget, which is testing at the moment.

    Bugger was that the existing NetGear boxes were just over a year old with 3 years warranty and I have 3, so I vowed never again to buy any NetGear stuff - regardless of how good value it was.

    Should add that we are on Vista at the moment. This year my servers will be going Virtual too, need to start working out the budget next month.

    Agreed, that happens a lot. It's also much harder when you are only 24, and look about 19.

    People find it really hard to actually listen to what you have to say, despite the MCSE!

    Means bugger all if they can't look past the face does it really.

    I all ways like the lines "I did tell you that during the meeting" or "HAHA Twat, I did tell you but nooooooo you would not pay any attention to me" or "Hello, thats what I said in the last 2 meetings so why the hell is this cock taking all the credit for my ideas?" or one thats being used the most at the moment as we clean up some projects "he's a prick thats why!"
    I hate cleaning up other people's projects for them. :keule:

    I'm doing just that at the moment.

    I learnt VBA at college 7 years ago, not planning to EVER use it. Good job I did, because I've been using it plenty to amend and repair the f**k ups done by this software company.

    Epic, epic fail.

    Also recently I configured a TS environment using entirely Linux LDE thin clients. Shame they still connect to, and use, and MS Server. A step in the right direction though....

    Speak for yourself - don't tar us all with the same brush :shrug:
    Some of us are doing large data operations that just need a quick check every few minutes :rock: to make sure that the server is following our instructions.

    Ah ha, then you may well be in luck me friend. Oh but you can send them. Just because you can't use it doesn't mean that it's not there....

    All MS did to disable it was turn off the Messenger service at startup. If you want to send them, simply fire up the Messenger service on your machine and the machine you want to message, and presto....

    NET SEND DANE HELLO.

    Ahhhhh.

    Best one I ever had was on our Win 98 network at school... Net send was enabled. Big mistake.

    NET SEND * THE HEAD FIDDLES YOUNG BOYS

    Nuff said. That popped up on EVERY machine in the school on the LAN.

    They never busted me, although knew I did it. Mwahahaha.

    NCIS, Bones, Castle, Hawaii Five-0 have all finished at the moment and I'm after something else.

    Any recommendations for good TV series?
