Ok, so I'm thinking to myself, "Ya know, it's been a while since I patched
this system. I should do it. Y2K and all."
So I sit down for a day's worth of DL'ing of patches. In the end, I get
125 patches to install, including PHSS_16429. Whee!! I should be set. I
proceed to copy them into my depot. Bzzt! PHSS_16429 has several dependencies
that can't be resolved.
I go off to another depot on campus an manage to get 2 resolved. I still
have 6 dependencies to go. Sigh...
Ever have one of those projects that start off simple, but the more you
work at it the bigger it gets?
Now to try and find the CDs.
What's the point? NT is not the solution.
NT is the problem.
Computers make very fast, very accurate mistakes.
