A client today asked me to help him deploy one of his home computers in his office. Â I said, “ummm… ok”, thinking that it was just a straightforward hook-up from his home network to his office network. Â Ah, but I had a fun time coming.
I booted the machine and behold… Windows ’98! Â I haven’t touched this operating system for the past 5 years, glad I did now really. Â With it, memories of my first cubicle job in a programming firm. Â I would marvel at how Windows ’98 was soooo better than Windows ’95. Â And chuckled lightly at some of my office buddies who are still working with the ’95 version.
Right now, I’m defraging his drive… after uninstalling a whole lot of arcade games! Â This must have been his kids home computer. Â Lucky brats have gotten a new PC for Christmas. Â All with the Vista trimmings of course.
Anyway, thanks for the memories my friend. Â Next job to do… installing anti-virus, then hook this baby up to some wireless juice for some needed freeware downloads.
