The whole point is that when a new industial building of ant type is built, don't build it in residential areas.
To use page load for a web page as an argument for locating the datacenters in a residential area is pretty silly. The data travel at the speed of light. Whenter the data come from the next door building or in some industrial area away from resideltial areas has no impact on page load.

If the industry was there first, it is a different issue, but that is not what is being discussed here.

I live 4 minutes drive from an "unpopulated area". There are only offices shops and light industry (and a small datacenter), and it is not a nuisance for anybody.
"Unpopulated" does not mean it needs to be in the middle of Sahara. It is just that there is a fair distance between the industry and where people live.

Comment Export the email to a PST file. (Score 1) 203

The best way to ensure the person gets the emails in a nice readable form is to export them to a PST file. Burn it on a DVD and give it to your manager and say exactly what it is and why you did it. Then the rest is up to him.

...and I know that some companies block PST creation in Outlook. No problem. Just a registry value. Google it if you need it.
