Walking Thursday

I went for a walk this morning. Then took one of the dogs for a walk this evening. Lucky dog – stiff John.

We got new computers at work. Unfortunately they are still running Windows XP, IE6 & Office 2003. So its a bit funny having a more powerful computer at work but more modern programmes at home. But if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it and really, do you need more for office work? (Though I’m surprised our computer department hasn’t upgraded the old browser, which is supposed to be relatively insecure. I guess they put more faith in updated anti-virus than updated browsers.)

Actually, this guy, who’se usually pretty good with tech stuff, has some reasons to stick with XP, and since I’m not having to administer hundreds of old computers with who knows how many random programmes on them, maybe Computer Services has the right idea.
