Journal: New HD in Laptop

Journal by the cleaner

The corporate-laptop got so messed up after fiddling with it for almost exactly a yer now, that I got a new installation last week.

Afterwards I had to:
  - install partition magic
  - repartition harddrive
  - reinstall linux from scratch (suse 8.1 is out so I would have updated anyway)

in Windows:
  - apply SP3 to Win2K-installation
  - DirectX 8.1
  - install IE6
  - reinstall all those little goodies, that my company wont install and that I need for everyday work (PGP for PGPdisk, PDF creator, Cygnus Environment, Winamp, Zoom-Player, all those Codecs (thanks to Nimo) and packers, FTP client, SSH client, WinPCAP, ethereal, etc.)

I am still busy reconfiguring everything to my needs.

Am I still missing something? Probably a lot.

Any suggestins what I forgot?

Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of everything and the Wirth of nothing?

Working...
