You'd be surprised (or maybe not) how many people still pay to keep the @aol.com e-mail they've had for going on 2 decades now.
Dammit, this shit is funny, why is it getting modded down? Truth hurting a bit much?
Too bad I don't have mod points anymore, I would've modded it up for funny.
...would be with analogy. Upper management don't do everything themselves. They have staff they delegate to. Get them to stop and think what a nightmare they'd be in if they had nobody to delegate to, and had to do all of the work coming at them by themselves. It's the same for IT.
If they try to go "But those other 5 guys..." stop them and point out that that would be like giving them 5 janitors to delegate to. They'd be better than nothing, but not the right fit for the job and a lot still wouldn't get done.
I love guys like you that say this. Short sighted as hell, and completely unaware that the day will come that you can't run fast enough to keep up and you'll hear rumblings of replacement.
Work smarter, not harder. Your job is only secure if you can maintain things. If you're running just to stand still, you're doing it wrong, and like OP, most IT crews of entities like this are either there, or on the verge of it.
for awhile, but I'd need to know any rules and such. I mean, this place isn't a full sensory deprivation chamber, it's just a silent room. So you can still see and such, I presume, or am I wrong? And can you talk? I would actually find it really fascinating, and not scary at all to hear my heartbeat and the blood rushing through my ears...
I think I'd have fun in there.
This. If I were Google and MS and Yahoo, etc. I'd just pull the plug on the
Making the search engines do the work would be like requiring checkpoints at every on/off ramp and intersection of every road, freeway, and highway to make sure no vehicle is transporting anything illegal, and threatening to shut the roads down if there is no compliance.
Go after the source, or fuck off. Stop making every step of the way play police officer.
What are you, a troglodyte?
They re-arrange it, add info and machines all the time. For awhile they had a Famicom and some games under glass and such. It's pretty neat. It's attached to the Computer Store, which I visit often to buy cheap classic xboxes to soft mod, and cheap game software, etc. Always a good time sink.
I think the both of you know what he meant and it's silly that you're going to be pedantic about it. She should have scanned all the files and encrypted them, as well as storing them off-site somewhere, and then kept the paper files locked in some kind of safe.
She did a poor job of keeping her belongings and her informants protected/safe.
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
This is incorrect, I am pretty sure. Plenty of programs and games recognize right vs. left ctrl, alt, and shift keys.
...store my nuts in it's mouth.
This is my stance on it, and has been. I've heard the argument that paying allows them to show less commercials, but I don't buy it. I'm certain they make a profit before ad partnerships.
