Area of Expertise
Recently I had the dubious honour of tidying up a laptop that a colleague had handed down to them by their son who “works for Cisco”.
It quickly became clear he had put absolutely zero effort in getting the laptop ready for use by a normal person. Highlights of this disaster area were:
- Windows XP SP2, with IE7, and no updates.
- Firfox 3.6.
- Graphics driver not installed.
- Remnants of various online gambling apps and IE toolbars.
- 10GB system partition (NTFS compressed, naturally) with the rest of the 60GB drive in a second partition that had nothing on it.
I’m sure this guy is a fine network engineer, but remind me never to hire former Cisco employees to do any kind of workstation management.
