A small business customer has a computer with 3 hard disk caddies… but doesn’t use them for backups, instead, they are used as 3 seperate “systems”… 1 is windows 98, the other 2 are winXP. They also have a new laptop that they need configured (they already managed to setup the wireless, so I’ll check the wireless security & find out why some of the other “caddy” systems won’t work correctly).
I setup WPA-PSK security with a nice long passphrase & activate MAC address filtering. I also setup antivirus & antispyware on the laptop. The main PC needs a lot more work, so I take it to the office & work on all the 3 caddies (its like working on 3 seperate computers, so it takes a lot longer).
I ask why have seperate caddies, as it could cause problems (eg email split amongst caddies), but customer also uses the caddies on another system (located elsewhere), so I guess thats ok.
Anyway, all is fixed, spyware is removed, and customer is happy (except for the internet, which suddenly stopped working as I delivered the system… It might seem like a strange coincidence, but it turned out to be an ISP problem, which got resolved many days later).
