Exodus to what? Solaris? HP-UX? Windows?
So what they get instead is a call asking if the SSD is user serviceable and depending on that answer I either don't buy it or I buy the 128GB and buy a replacement on newegg.
Why do I have to buy a i7 to get a 512GB ssd?
If there was any serious competition to comcast in my area I'd switch. But we have nothing. ATT U-Verse at half the speed and the same price, or comcast with 1.8th the support and customer service.
I'd gladly pay 35% more for 100mbps internet with a 10mbps uplink.
A guy in indiana got away with shooting a police officer during a no-knock warrant. Although in his case they broke into the wrong house.
Maybe we could bottle the river water and sell it as a cure all?
Exactly! I do contract work at $150 an hour. So any time I have to myself either has to be fun and enjoyable, or save me more than my $150 an hour rate. If it takes an hour to do and someone can do it for me for $50 bucks, then I'm going to pay for it. Not because I don't know how, but because I'd rather use that time doing something enjoyable.
Speaking of this, anyone have a service for going clothes shopping with your wife?
I don't go out to movies because of noise.
I'm sick of hearing people yelling at the TV, parents who won't take the screaming kid out, etc. No thanks, I'll watch it at home on my 60 inch TV with 7.1 sound.
I'm waiting for the jeans market to catch up and make pockets big enough to carry the Nexus 6, then I'll look at the phone.
My website is at fd30:0000:0000:0001:ff4e:003e:0009:000e, please visit.
Having gone from the Linux to windows world. I'd like to refute your joke, sadly when we migrated all our servers to 2012r2 and went with server core almost half the staff had no idea how to use them. I was told to put the GUI back until I could train them in how to use powershell.
I know that. I was apparently not clear.
I have two choices.
1) Carry around my personal cell phone (nexus 5) and a blackberry that is 5+ years old (for work email).
2) Carry around my personal cell phone, and check my email via webmail because my boss will not allow activesync on personal devices.
3) Find a new job.
3 was a good answer.
Imagine being a project manager who can't access her calendar on her phone. Instead she has to VPN in and use OWA. Imagine being forced to use 17 inch 3:4 displays.
I wouldn't take an IT job where the environment was old and busted. Why would anyone want to be a programmer for us knowing they have to use slow computers, work in a cramped cube, on a slow VM, with no support for their devices and no thought put into how they would like to work?
I don't expect a brand new PC every 2 years. I expect to use modern technology. That means I can get my email via activesync on my cell phone and not carry around a blackberry and my cell phone. That means having an IT department that rather than dictate, meets with it's customers (the employees) and finds out what they need to do their job. Then they figure out who to safely give them those needs within the policy defined by management. That means having management that is reasonable and listens to the needs of it's staff and IT.
So yes, I am going to spend 40+ (Let's be realistic more like 60+) hours a week working. I want that time to be enjoyable. If I don't get a nice workspace, nice computer, nice tools to do my job, etc then I'm going to find a job that gives me those things.
We say things like that, but then we also say things like "We can't seem to attract talent."
I wonder if forcing our staff to use 8 year old locked down computers, blackberries from 2005, and draconian email access/other rules are related.
They should build better websites. The reason I don't stay on most news websites is not google news, it's paywalls, obtrusive ads, autoplaying videos, etc.
