See that equipment above? That is ARCHAIC, OLD, BROKE DOWN, computer equipment in the White House.
No wonder Obama's website, whitehouse.gov is not totally there, yet.
I don't blame IT, techies, whining and complaining on equipment like that. In fact, my husband and I went through a bunch of computers (yes, we are both in it) and put them out to pasture that was sitting in a corner in one of our rooms. And that monitor? Are you scared, yet? OMG, have you heard of FLAT SCREENS? Hello? FLAT SCREENS? It reduces the space on your desk/workstation, ultra cool and replaces the 100 pound, clunky monitor.
There is nothing sexy or cool about that old assed equipment above, sorry I had to go there.
White House, first thing on the list, NEW COMPUTER EQUIPMENT, ASAP. For us, we to have a savvy, techie President of the United States and he does not have a laptop or have to look at ancient computer equipment which is not doable for 2009, is just a shame.
