Just set up hundreds of wi-fi networks in your own building so the odds of the one across the street showing up in the first screen of results on anyone's device is really low.

This is clearly the best plan. Just present it to HR along with the cost for 500 access points, an appropriate number of power strips, potential electricity costs and note that microwave radiation is different to WiFi and so there's no risk of liquifying everyone's internal organs and you should be good.

I had it mentioned this evening that infrastructure is a cost centre unlike those SalesForce wizards who generate revenue.

Motherfuckers, you try generating all that revenue when you're back to using notepads, pencils and calculators because all the infrastructure has been thrown into cleansing fire by unappreciated engineers t

I used to get this when giving Finance the number of people we needed to run all our call centre and processing/email handling operations. Yeah, you know what, it costs a lot for this multinational company to deal with all these customer contacts. Unfortunately the product is, essentially, the advice we offer over the phone, so unless you want to change the entire business either pay for the people you need or sell less of the product so you need fewer people. Yes this is a cost centre but it is also your goddamned product.

All these 24 standards are poo poo, we should make a new standard that addresses all the previous issues. There are now 25 competing standards.

At least with email SFP/DKIM cuts down on the sheer volume of bullshit. Can't wait for SIP to end up the same way, but given telecom is at best 500x worse than email ever could be, that'll happen sometime after either the heat death of the universe or someone solving P=NP and using it to make a shackled hard AI that screens his calls.

One of my old jobs was fun because of all the people who'd insist when they were talking to our Indian employees that our call centre was outsourced, only to have one of our non-Indian managers take over the call and tell them to stop being racist.

When I worked at a bank, we had one guy, literally one, with an Indian name and accent and the poo poo he had to deal with was unreal. So many people going "Oh yeah, what's the weather like in NOTTINGHAM then if that's where you are" and making out they couldn't understand him to try and get to talk to someone less brown when he was perfectly comprehensible. His line manager ended up terminating at least one customer's account because they were so racist towards him.

In conclusion, people are awful.

It's just ten characters with a capital letter and a number, oh and you have to have one letter in your password from your email address. That's logical passwordery.

Your password not being unsafe should be fine. Did you make sure to uncheck that you don't accept the T&Cs

Ticket metrics are useful, but you can't look at them in a vacuum.

Person A closes 100 tickets a week.
Person B closes 30 tickets a week.
Person C closes 80 tickets a week
Person D closes 25 tickets a week.

So let's look at the tickets Person B does, oh hey they pick up stuff that no one else touches like insert difficult task here, great they are doing good work.

Let's see what Person D does, oh they are doing password resets only... maybe we should talk to them about productivity.

This is the same for literally every productivity metric ever and it's infuriating to me that managers almost always just go "faster equals better, kick the slow people in the teeth until they game the system" instead of going "hey why is Steve doing three million widgets an hour when the median is forty, maybe we should look at what he's doing"

Except that the median will invariably be (re-)set to Steve.

Management by metrics is a disease.

It's funny, the only place I've seen productivity metrics used remotely smartly is sales areas. Who, of course, ignore everything apart from money generated but will absolutely question people who could have made MORE money if they'd gone at the average pace.

I gave up fighting the uphill battle that was trying to get people to put agendas in meeting invites

I had a boss who just didn't show up to meetings without an agenda. I wish I had enough fucks left to do this instead of just going to to the meetings and then using the wasted two hours as a reason I've not finished another piece of work.

Test wise, I'm not strictly speaking the target audience for this thread, but at my last job I had to do a simple forecasting test (here's five datasets, pick one and forecast it out for three years. Dead easy, I did all five because I'm a show off.

I found out after I got the job that they introduced that test because the previous guy aced the competency based interview and then once he started couldn't do the actual job AT ALL. We're talking "could barely do sums in excel" bad. He was gone inside of three months, hence the vacancy.

I find it weird that I seem to be the only person I know who uses Shift-Delete/Ctrl-Insert/Shift-Insert for cut/copy/paste. Was there some point where those were the only way of doing cut/copy/paste or something because I can't think why I do that instead of Ctrl-X/C/V.
