in reply to Thing that would make going to work more agreeable

How about better equipment? Can any of us say they couldn't use another server, or a more powerful desktop machine? Me, I'm not asking for an additional 2 gigahertz machine so I can play Unreal at work. I wouldn't say no to:

  • A more powerful Irix server for automated acceptance testing
  • A Linux box on my desk that I could use for development without having it double as a server
  • An extra hard drive for my Windows box so I could make it dual boot, and hence spend less time sitting in a cold lab doing client testing.
No kidding, I actually dug a 10 gig drive out of my closet to donate to the company because I couldn't get $10 allocated to buy a bigger hard drive for one of the server. God help me when my video card dies.
