I have something that actually kinda parallels this thread, so I thought I'd post instead of just shitposting.

I work in paper mill, in production. Paper is made by boiling trees, and then pushing this tree sludge through series of roller nips to make it as flat as possible. The paper is then dried, coated, possibly polished, and cut into customer/product specs.
Everyone probably knows how strong a piece of paper is. We run that tree sludge at like ~800 metres a minute.

We utilize pretty robust high-speed cameras to record and archive when, why, and where the paper web breaks, wraps itself around a hot steam roller, possibly causes a fire, and causes a production stoppage that's cost is calculated in ten thousands of euros a hour.
At the most recent web break event one of the operators wrote, paraphrased, into diary:

"Web break at drying section, would tell you the reason, but all our cameras are saying RESUBSCRIBE. Forced to do a full system was just incase. Estimated downtime 6 hours."

Resubscribe like reconnect or resubscribe like "your subscription has expired"?

Wouldn't actually know, since the system doesn't tell us.

See? This is why we need to get rid of our IT. We can overseas it, save money, AND they will know they are a service position to the rest of the company. Let's see if we can turn this into a profit center, instead of an unnecessary drain on the yearly books. I feel we could really synergize our partnership with an overseas helpdesk AND monetize that paradigm shift! Please, do the needful!

Dont make me pull out the email signature again.

Clearly, the solution here is to propose a new assistant position for the so that they can have a person read out any and all written messages.. because they can't loving read.

Minnesota has Fertile, Climax, and Moorhead all within a hundred miles.

Those do sound like places Finnish settlers would name places.

At my place we have officially named the auditoriums and meetings rooms according to old mill buildings. Such as "Hollander", "Bleaching", and "Tampella".

What people call them instead is "PMx Office large meeting room", PMx Office Small meeting room" "Aquarium" (has glass walls), etc etc

Dunno, it sounds like your dad possibly worked for IRA, or other similar organization, which would make it workplace appropriate
