Comment Probably true at large corporations (Score 1) 397

where you have to handle the typical asshole IT manager, who in turn has to handle his asshole manager and so on. I'm an admin in a small company, above me is my boss, and above him the owner. They just don't give a shit until everything works fine. So no, I don't consider my job extremely stressful, my users are software developers, they seem more stressed to me than I am. Not posting anonymously, 'caue I don't give a shit either.

What do you mean? Skydrive has a 2GB limit on filesize (just found this out the other day, when trying to store a 3 GB encrypted backup there). On Dropbox the only limit is your available storage. (I have 10 GB:) ) Skydrive has no differential sync. Change 1 byte in a 2GB file, it uploads the whole thing again. Dropbox breaks down the files in (I think) 4 MB pieces, uploads only what changed. I'm in no way affiliated with Dropbox, I just think it's more flexible. It's true that Skydrive offers more free storage space though.

I think this is the root of the problem here, he chose the wrong filesystem to share between the three OSes. Sadly there are not too many choices. FAT32 is the only one natively supported by all three, with its well known limitations. He might have been better with NTFS though, using NTFS-3G on Linux and OS X, but that has some performance hit. There's really no perfect solution for this kind of problem.

This guy represents the average romanian "hacker" perfectly. Romanian readers might agree that the cocalar term might also be applicable.
Oh yes, and "shoarec" means mouse. :))

PS. Yes, I live in Romania.
