I'm sitting in front of a laptop in Delaware, logged in via a terminal server session to a server in the UK. The server is running VMWare, and I've got the console for a running virtual machine up on the screen. It took some searching to find that given that the terminal server session didn't adjust screen resolution to fit the entire window on screen so I couldn't see the task bar. So I've copied a Domino install package from a virtual shared folder on the host machine into the virtual machine, and now I'm running an install that is putting the program files on a virtual C: drive and the data files on a virtual E: drive. The fact that this is absolutely routine is mildly disturbing. Oh wait! Here's the best part! The system is in the UK, so the keyboard mapping doesn't match my US keyboard. I'm trying to type a backslash into the pathname for the data directory, and it keeps coming out as a "#" character! Thank goodness for the character map app and cut-and-paste! Otherwise, I'd be up a (virtual) creek.

those pesky brits! backslash is just to the left of the z on the Dell keyboard in front of me. At least the letters are all where you expect them to be, try typing on a French AZERTY board, or even for extra points use a Japanese layout!
