Started my new posting today, they gave me a dinky little Dell laptop a dock/port replicator and a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Spent most of the day on the phone to the IT people:
- Nowhere in the office to plug it in!
- Couldn't acquire the wireless network.
- Couldn't see the two network printers.
- Office not registered!
Had to limp down to their cave twice (well if it can't see the network....). Some idiot had imaged it and got the service tag wrong
Well I say I mean My mobility is pretty poor, I can't go back to a nursing role, so it is office work for me.
Am sat here, leg trembling with all the walking I have done, just to get the damn thing working. Early night calling just to stretch it out.
So eight hours and I haven't done anything except set up a laptop. If I hear that "on hold" music again, I may just go postal.
Still can't plug it in, that will probably take all of tomorrow.
