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.
Seems like everyone in this article though it was a bad idea..but it looks like it does hurt them.
With the right color commentary I think we could have a entire youtube channel dedicated to putting together jigsaw puzzles.
Which is the exact opposite of what merchants are trying to do with their shitty CurrentC.
They don't want security, they want protection from liability. They probably want to move that liability onto the consumer.
And then I still have to check it every other browser. Plus, many of those fixes are going to be server side. It seems like a solution in need of a problem.
I write code in the editor of my choice, then I open chrome and look at my results. Any issues are addressed with the already pretty nice built in tools.
Firefox is just something I check (like IE) for feature parity.
Seeing as you can only use the chain if you are in the room (unless you have a trick for locking the chain after I leave the room). I would hope that all that noise wakes me up.
Or hell a VCR and a timer!
I can record your shit OTA for free. If I'm giving you money I'm not watching commercials. Sorry this is DOA to me.
(Full disclosure, I'm an atheist) Actually, god was afraid we would steal his power. That's why he kicks us out.
And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
