business as usual // work bitching

grrrr.. so, someone wants to set up a laptop lab. wireless connectivity, internet access, printers on a central server, the works.

problem is, they've allready purchased the equipment they want to do it with.

All this, when they could have just purchased some slightly different equipment and had it all working just fine.

oh yeah, did I mention they need it working by Thursday? :)
