I have a temporary, short-term contract at the moment for a company that needs to check the compliance of their thousands of desktop PCs with various Windows security patches, updates, anti-virus software, etc. I have very mixed feelings about this job.
It's a job (that's good) and provides an income (something I haven't had in well over a year). It's mostly Perl (and what isn't Perl is VBScript, which, while lame, isn't arduous). It's entirely done on Windows, which is not my favorite operating system...
And therein lies the rub.
