[033] Working Computer…Not.


I might need to change the title of this blog to “Trials and Tribulations of a Corporate Newbie.”

Today started out well…ish. When I got to work I still didn’t have a password, but I did get a print out of the style guide to read, which definitely killed some time. My manager brought me my temporary password before lunch (!) so I was actually able to use my computer! I got everything set up, ate lunch with my office mate, and then continued organizing my desktop. I was emailed a serial number for CS6 (!!) but when I went to install it, I was prompted for an admin password. WTF. Long story short, I had to wipe everything off the computer, including all the organizing of stuff I just spent hours on, reinstall Windows 8, make myself the admin, and reboot. That only took like 2 hours, and before I left the office both of my monitors were flashing on and off. I’m so not looking forward to dealing with that tomorrow.

  1. been there. done that. and this year, they asked me ‘do you want a new computer?’ …it’s faster, bigger HDD, etc… but do I really need the hassle? printer settings, internet settings, email settings, admin settings, …where is this folder? why can’t i access this mainframe?/document/folder … what a pain!
