You might all have heard stories of a child coming into the bedroom and discovers his father wearing a bra and high heels, or an equally embarrassing situation. You can imagine the look in the eyes of such a child: What is Daddy doing now
?? Aren't those Mommy's clothes?
Anyway, that did not
happen to me.
But this did:
Recently I started again with providing support for business networks. Most of the work I don't do myself fortunately, I run the business and a geek wizard does the handwork. But sometimes I have to do something myself as well.
So I brought a discarded Windows 2003 server home to test backups and backup software. (For those who don't know, backing up a Windows server is far from trivial, let alone a succesful restore. It goes far and far beyond tar and rsync. Really it is much better no to test that on the live server you just sold)
Anyway, tonight I carried the thing into the computer room and switched it on. Then my son Grep entered the room and caught me.
Believe me, if he had caught me while wearing my wife's bra his astonishment and horror could not have been worse. That was the look in his eyes.
Oh well, while the Windows server is downloading 231 MB to install .NET (I want to run a backup application, that is why I need to download 231 MB .NET...) I'll try to recover his brain damage.
