Not really a surprise

One company I contract for occasionally contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking if I was available to do some server migrations in the next 2-3 months. Turns out they're 2003 boxes (I said yes of course!).

Another one I'm working at at the moment still has a few hundred 2003 boxes around. Some bright spark has decided the solution will be to install McAfee HIPS on to them all to harden them against attacks. Cue failing Production services...
