Work Laptop

At my old job, we had to beg to get an old laptop to trade among the 3 of us who were on-call. That way we could VPN into the system from home to fix any problems. Occasionally the on-call person wouldn’t be available and one of the others would have to drive into work (usually at 4 AM) to fix the problem.

At my new job, I’ve been given a laptop. A brand new high-end laptop. With all sorts of expensive development tools that I might not even need. And, of course, a leather laptop bag. (It’s the little things, you know.)

    It’s a Compaq nx7010 (whatever that means). It has a wireless card. Wide screen. I’m going to have them upgrade it to a gig of memory (they actually listen to employees who ask for resources).
