The situation in my workplace is a little bit of havoc. One day the system is up and running, the next day nothing seems to work. I have a new PC with Windows 7 but I am still using my old PC on Windows XP because the network and servers do not seem to like the new Windows 7 very much; even though the so called IT professionals have tested Windows 7 for weeks. They should have upgraded Windows 7 by batches. Instead, they upgraded all existing PCs to Windows 7 over last weekend. When everyone eagerly came to work on Monday to test out the new system, it did not work at all. In fact, most staffs could not do their work because the servers and computers were not talking to each other.
Just yesterday, they managed to get most things up and running but this morning, everything just stalled. None of the IT professionals could be found until 0900 hours. They solved it eventually. Well, they have to. I am still using my old PC and the new PC is lying comfortably under my table, unused. Ideally, I would like to have another set of monitor, keyboard and mouse so that I can install the software I use on the new PC while giving me the ability to work using my old PC. But I doubt they have the time to deal with my request anyway. Bear in mind that everything should be up and running by the end of this week!
