They say you learn something new every day.

Had a bit of a depressing meeting today.

A colleague and I have been scripting some things to simplify the process of moving users from Windows XP to Windows 7. The current process is a mess, that makes a lot of mistakes, and is incredibly manual. Our process uses some clever scripts to automate the whole process.

The problem is, them upstairs in the big chairs aren’t convinced. It needs testing. It needs a backup plan. They’re right of course.

It reminds me, if I didn’t know this before, that simple is better. The more things there are, the more things that can go wrong. And the way you present things needs to be simple as well, and fully cover all the potential problems in a solution, offering solutions.
