Yes, after getting a required "upgrade" to my company leased laptop, and spending all of last week reconfiguring and reloading all of the software necessary to do my bit for "national security", I finally had all systems restored and running last Friday.
As hinted above, I like to unwind at lunch time with a post to this here blog. Usually occupies no more than 30 minutes of my time. And as it's lunch, it is my time!
So imagine my chagrin and then righteous indignation to discover today that somehow IT had managed to disable my access to Google Chrome, a most enlightened browser. As opposed to our IT Department's browser of choice, Internet Explorer (IE).
Now I used to like IE, then somehow it got tied to Bing, which sucks by the way, and my inclination to use IE ended. Also, if you must know, our IT Department delivers all of our "new" computers with a version of IE which was current in the modern world shortly after Caesar bridged the Rhine during the Gallic War of 53 BC.
Yes, the version of Internet Explorer we are forced to use at work is what I call, excuse the technical terminology, a flaming, useless, cheap piece of crap. Not to put too fine a point on it.
That, dear readers, is why you have been sans new posts until now.
No cool aircraft pictures...
None of my quirky views of modern society...
No awesome in cockpit videos (with or without cheesy music)...
In short, thee have been deprived!
Hhhmm, definitely a case of YMMV.
Oh, and did I mention that Monday's suck?
That is all...
