It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Windows Hate (Day 2)

Using Windows is like having an Emery Paper Enema, it's not something a sane person chooses to do. It's taken me two days to get Windows to talk properly to one of our pumps and even then it's not stable. It's going to be a real challenge to get all the data out of the pump and into SAP in time.

On the up side it's Perl programming which is good and I'm now confident it will work, even if it's an evil solution. If only we could use Linux or Unix everywhere, life would be so much easier.
