Just got a new laptop at work. About freakin' time. My last one (that I got last year, mind you) was a hand-me-down from another department and was probably about 5 years old when I got it. At least this one is brand spankin' new.
The downside is that I now have to go and reinstall all of the custom applications I need to do my job because IT has no idea what all I use to do my job. Not really a major deal, but it is a pain in the backside trying to get it all together and make sure I haven't missed anything.
So much for getting any real work done for the rest of the week. (I'm working half day tomorrow and off the rest of the week.)
I feel your pain, that's why I keep putting off doing a complete nuke & pave on my desktop at home, which is full of problems I won't even begin to go into cause I'd need something to lower my bloodpressure
It's easier to live with/work around all the crappy behaviour than to try to figure out all the varous obscure software I have on here, track down the disks or websites and re-install. (Backing up data to put back on it no problem, it 's all the little apps and things I've accumulate over the years.
