In the next day or so, I will be given a Vista workstation. I get to try and break it. No, I can't pour soft drink onto the processor while it's running. My chances of scoring a new monitor (without breaking the old one first) from IT would plummet if I did that.
I get to try all sorts of weird and wonderful tasks on it, and report back on how it assists (or impedes) my work. And if I can make it crash all the time. Like, by booting up the computer or something. That works in Windows, right?
Wish me luck. I may need it.
