I’ve been working from home for the last couple of days. This is I can get away from the daily grind of meetings and phone calls so I can concentrate on getting some work done. The plan was to use my work laptop and connects to my company’s network via VPN over my wireless network. However, thing was never that simple when technology is concerned. Even though the Wi-Fi card works perfectly well before the laptop is upgraded from Win2k to WinXP, now it refuses to work. Not that it does not see the router, it does, but XP somehow does not see the connection at all. So, I was forced to work from my PowerBook instead! What a hard life 😀
It turned out that I can be pretty productive on my Mac too. I get company emails via the Outlook Web Access on the web browser, chat to my colleagues via MSN Messenger, and I can get access to the client’s test site over the internet. The only thing I miss is the VPN connection so I can use Entourage for email rather than web mail.
