Misc: Saving A Minute A Day

We used to have a slow login start script that would take a minute or more to map remote drives and printers to our workstations. The script was over-complicated and no longer maintained, so I asked our IT person to write us a much a shorter and simpler one. The resulting script now takes one or two seconds to run. For 10 staff, saving that one minute a day is worth up to one man-week a year (1 minute * 10 * 240 working days)!
