Skating away, on the thin ice
Of a new day
You would think, wouldn't you?
IBM's workforce, particularly in front line field services, should be the company's crown jewels. They are its feet on the street.
But nope. The email round robin manglement are pretty sure they ARE the crown jewels.
And that front line? Temp workers not actually on IBM's payroll.
I'm pretty good at things, but...
...for some reason I can never get WINE to work right.
No doubt it's just me, but the lack of good troubleshooting documentations doesn't help.
Here's another eaxmple:
Can we send all the marketers on that special spaceship now?
Hard to believe, right? /s :)
Not enough upvotes!
Re: Dont' name and shame persistent offenders
Came to say the same thing. I have no sympathy if they have been trained and warned more than once.
Re: Theft? stealing? Surely the IPO knows that it's called infringement!
Used to be the same is Amerikka. Copyright infringement was just... a copyright infringement and civil matter involving fines.
Now? It's equated with other "hard" crimes.
Not enough upvotes.
Do the large corps know about this? Or is it only when it applies to what they have stolen and now claim as theirs?
I never get tired of saying this: you have all the rights you can afford. You poor? Too bad.
And that's the real pisser. Why are they using my PC and bandwidth to do their work?
Private mode browsing, ad blockers, do not track, firewall, anti virus, and then CCleaner (old version) after browsing. And that's on a good day.
Soon I'll HAVE to get VPN.
It's fucking ridiculous.
First it was the virus arms race
Now it's the malware arms race.
Ask me if I feel bad about my blockers. Go on, I dare ya.
Except they were using NHoS.
Re: "Roll on the next general election, and get these shower of bastards away from the NHS."
Love those shows. Too bad they too real to be laugh out loud funny.
Typical school ties mananglement
"then you can see why we have no actual innovation, just bullshitters retweeting each other about a vague fantasy Blockchain and AI future,
That about sums up the school ties, brown envelope, old boy network nicely.
“a Python worker service tier” on paravirtualized AWS instances.
I think I see the problem. Too much Rube Goldberg.
Seriously, they just make this shit up, don't they?
Re: Define response...
I miss the 410 pages.
I'm running out of clever titles for FAIL
To fail at building a website is inexcusable.
Here we are 20 years on into the Internet age and bad websites are still a thing? Maybe if they stood with the basics and quit trying to see how many angels can dance on the head of pin with as much wanking frippery as they can fit into the kitchen sink, websites may be fast and usable again.
Bah, who am I kidding, gingerbread houses will always the choice of the hoi poli and engineers of all stripes will make something complicated just for job security.
The Post reports that the messaging system offers a drop-down menue two options: "'Test missile alert' and 'Missile alert'." Whoever sent the message chose the latter instead of the former, with now-well-known results.
I have used so many interfaces like this. To exact opposite commands right next to each other. Really bad design.
Re: Quite clearly scandalous
Well played. Well played.
Not enough face palm
Biggest face palm ever.
Re: @ecofeco They have a case?
Well you get an upvote from me, Ian Michael Gumby because, unfortunately, you are all too right.
They have a case?
I'm not sure I see how they have a case. Motion detection, streaming video and an alarm or notification of some kind on your phone are ALL prior art. By years and decades,
Re: Meanwhile, and in future...
Oh, like that ever happens with ANY corporation that screwed it customers!
I mean come on man! Meaningful customer compensation for theft by unfit product/service? That's just crazy commie talk!
Why can't we have more of this?
Because everything in America is a scam and Mammon is god.
I'm sure it's just a coincidence
Any casual connection between this latest round of SNAFU and the preceding layoffs last year are purely coincidental, I'm sure.
BTW, I have this lovely bridge for sale, gently used.
The 3 Es again
Embrace. Extend. Extinguish.
Now lets see how many downvotes I get from the citizens of De Nile.
Re: Poor Poorer.
Just saw the summary the other day:
"Communism won't end capitalism. Workers who can't afford to buy things, will end capitalism."
So tech support will still pay piss all?
That is to say workers in our brave new world will still have things to do, but many of them, assisting and assisted by machines, will be paid poorly while robot owners get rich.
So much for learning new skills to improve your income.
The drone market was saturated years ago.
It's all over except the tweaking.
You've built your PC wrong.
Re: Freezing ...
Honestly, it sounds like a hardware issue.
It is crazy fast. I'm running it on an old CoreDuo and it acts like a quad core.
Re: What's all the fuss about?
Th fuss is that Linux is by far the faster and more efficient of the three OSes and Mint has become the favorite because it is the least cluttered and needy.
Same here. Updated fast and no issues. It took a few weeks for the FireFox update to catch up.
Running on an old CoreDuo. You would think I have a quad core.
It *is* personally disturbing that the international public rhetoric sounds so much like that being tossed around in the mid-thirties. Are we collectively *that* ready for another global ding-dong that as soon as the surviving generations who remember the last one are almost all dead we are itching for another go?
Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this way. The amount of on-line comments supporting Nazi's right to free speech is... fucking scary.
Re: Every Week
No pay, no play.
Re: Overtime payments
I now those bastards.
There is no moral obligation to anyone who is not paying you for your work. (friends and family excluded, maybe)
Re: it's a Microsoft product...
This is version 3. Or is it 4 now?
Re: Buy the US 15” from Amazon or similar
I see what you did there, but the /s tag would have been helpful.
They are actually quite nice! I was surprised.
But not as surprised as at the insane price of one.
And still way overpriced.
Re: Failure to attract new business
Do yourself a favor. Never invite them into your business.
HP also does some incredible R&D. The problem is neither company remembers how to make profits from real tech and not baffling people with bullshit.
It seems obvious what they should have done
They should have leveraged existing content and re-purposed it to create new synergies that changed the exiting paradigm that offered more value to stakeholders while raising visibility and brand awareness to drive more actionable results in response to projected pent up demand and reached out to....
Oh fuck them.
Oh this will work out well.
