The conversation started something like this…
Scene opener: James carefully yet excitedly opening a newly arrived package.
James (enthusiastically): “This looks good. Love the cabling.”
Vic (flippantly): “Looks like my hair on a bad day from here.”
James (incredulously): “Do you have no appreciation of the technology which goes into producing a bit of kit like this?”
Vic (honestly): “I appreciate it but don’t understand it. I prefer words to plastic and metal. What’s it for anyway?”
James (cunningly): “I think you should work it out for yourself! Use those words you love so much to do some research and produce a blog post all about it. You can call it ‘Veber Marketing Does Kit”.
Vic (hesitantly): “That’s not a bad idea…” [looks again at the kit], “…smart a**e. OK, I’ll do it. But only if you do your ‘Best bits of Windows Server 2012’ blog post and make me a cup of tea to help me through the pain. Deal?”
James (smirking): “Deal.”
So with the challenge now accepted, I now have to find out what this piece of kit is, what it does and what the benefit of using it is.
Think I’ve got a challenge on my hands.
Come back Friday to see if I can find out what this piece of kit is. Any help welcomed!
