One of those days...
It's a been a busy 24 hours so sorry for the lack of posting.
Yesterday our network was hit by this W32/Lovgate.gen@M virus doing the rounds at the moment. It didn't have too much of an effect other than to panic everyone. Local McAfee installs caught it fine but we ended up losing the morning due to user's doing headless chicken impressions. Ho hum.
Then for some reason my PC decided to throw a wobbly. I spoke to it nicely but it was having now of it. Eventually I decided to knock my SCSI drives on the head and pop in a new SATA drive and reinstall. What a revelation! Fresh installs of operating systems are so fast and clean. It's even, dare I say it, reawakened my like of Windows XP - something that had waned considerably in recent months.
Then our new MD decided that I had to go to his house and help set up his son's PC - printing, sound, internet access, the lot. It didn't help that the install as on Arabic Windows XP but eventually we got there.
So today I'm catching up with the lost hours from yesterday and reinstalling my favourite apps on my reborn PC. Quite fun, actually.
