It has been a frustrating few days.

I've got a new (internal) interim build of Windows Server Virtualization to test. Since we're on the road doing virtualization in a few weeks I've used my second internal hard disk (£28 from Scan, or over £100 from Dell with a small peice of plastic attached). Of course that meansthe disk that I do my work on is out of the machine and I'm working in notepad at the moment.

Since I didn't want to join my 2008 Server to the domain, it doesn't meet the IP-Sec requirements to connect to corporate servers - although I can connect to the internet via a proxy.
