It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Dead PC

At the start of the is week my Dell Optiplex PC at work died. Well it actually refused to boot, Windows XP got so far but no further. I've been given a new PC to work with instead.

On one hand it's nice to have a new PC, it's marginally faster and the new keyboard is much nicer, on the other I've lost two days to setting it back up again to be useful. The new PC is on the companies new build, so even though I'm still local admin there are things I can't do on this PC that I use to be able to do on the old one.

It's a shame I can't have Linux and I'm forced to have an obsolete Windows system but nothing is perfect...
