Wow! It's been a while since I posted anything new. It's been pretty hectic the last few weeks.
The Celeron-based system that the company gave me turned into a bad joke as I was getting bogged down with work. Because of compatibility issues I had to upgrade to Office 2007 to share some services with the other guys. My puny 512MB Celeron wept in its Wheaties under the onslaught of Microsoft bloated code. It took me a half-hour just to to to my mail!!
So, long story short, they gave me this 4GB 3.0GHz P4 box to run on. A wee bit better, laddies, but not as much as you'd think!
