View Full Version : Count yourselves lucky

If ever you feel the need to complain about work networks.. count yourself lucky you dont have to use the one Im stuck with.

It wasnt so bad when it was just dummy terminals hooked up to a single PII processor, although it DID get slightly irritating when you had to wait for the screen to catch up with your typing.

But since they 'upgraded' to dummy terminals running of a central server in auckland... not only can a one fingered monkey type faster than the screen can refresh, but typing any faster than a one fingered monkey causes the terminal to lock up and eventually crash.

I even offered to fix the problem for free... using a powerdrill, a large can of petrol and a match but was told my services werent required ;-)
