User thanked IT department for fast new server, but it had never left its box

Like to play swap out

We got a load of HP laptops all indentical which run Igel client configured for Citrix use.

We get the odd call to say its running slow when they log on etc (Just normally reset the citrix profile as nowt special saved in it)

But always get the odd person who wont have it so we keep a couple of spares and just swap the laptop out for a spare one and put the swopped one back out in stocl untill the next call and swop again.

We dont even bother to boot the things up when swopped as there is really no point..

its the illusion you have done something that pays off

Ashes to Ashes

About 3 years had a call from local Crem to report PC kept shutting down near the Crem machine where the bodies go.

So sent across one of the minions to go take a look and he bought it back to site as indeed was over heating.

So the poor lad takes this apart and its full of (I kid you not) white soot.

So he happily goes on with clean it out etc.. untill i explain to him what the soot could possiably be...
