Such a geek

I'm such a geek.  It's Friday night, my wife is coaching my daughters U12 soccer game.  What am I doing?

I'm trying to debug a smart card problem for a customer.  On the plus side I've opened a bottle of wine, had pizza, and am also watching SpongeBob.  OK, opened might equal drank.  But I'm not telling.

Smartcards, at least for PIN based Windows logins really are a PITA.  Expiring certs, folks forgetting PIN's, 3rd party CA's, different CSP's for different vendors, increased login time...need I go on?

Sun Ray has it right by just doing hotdesking.  Leave the heavy lifting to others.
