Life 2 (based on icon from tamnonlinear)

Frustrating software

Today is the last day to apply for a new benefits package at work. For me the submitting requires logging on to a different network (with a different id) then running an excel application to model then submit my choice of benefits. Just one problem - the app thinks today is too late The scurity setup is so tight you cant get at the excel source code or change the date

So I "fixed" it
Log back onto main network
add my id on the /other/ network to Local Administrators group
Log in to other network - initial script sets date/time from network
Reset date time
Run silly app
Restore date time
Logout

Once again my "hacking" mentality pays off :))
I wonder if the local help desk will figure out what people are doing :)
