One of my colleagues Thinkpad crashed on Friday afternoon and was sent to the repair center on Monday morning. Due to this crash he didn’t have access to Notes e-mail or any of our databases during the weekend. Fortunately he installed a 4GB USB-stick with NOMAD (Notes, Designer, Administrator 7.0.2) some weeks ago so he has been able to continue working of any spare computer available. Only requirement – an USB port. Nice! Zero actual downtime work wise.
Only downside is the lack of VPN support to run off a USB key.
I’m just afraid he’s growing too fond of not having to lug his Thinkpad around… 😉
