Just finishing work at 2am... [Sep. 20th, 2006|01:55 am]

I'd have liked to make some reference to the distaste I feel for applications which don't handle the NT/2000/XP/2003 domain security model well, and which fail in unlikely ways unless the user is a local administrator.

I'd have liked to make some reference to the distaste I feel for applications which don't handle Terminal Services well, and which fail in unlikely ways unless the user is a local administrator of the Terminal Server.

I'd have liked to make some reference to the distaste I feel for such applications when there's only one server, so it has to double up as both domain controller and terminal server, meaning that they fail in unlikely ways unless the user is a domain administrator.

I'd have liked to make some reference to the distaste I feel when a significant (ie non-zero) number of regular user accounts have to be given domain admin rights.

But at the moment I'm busy trying hard not to express my feelings abut anti-virus products which nuke the Exchange message store and shred the logs because they don't understand what makes Exchange tick.

Ah well. Tomorrow I'm off to an exhibition. Ummm ... it's an exhibition where by far the majority of the target market are disabled people, a significant proportion of whom have issues with mobility, or stamina, or both. Here's a good idea: let's stage the exhibition on the top of a really big hill.

Alarm at 6am. I'll be thoroughly rested ... not.
