Work convos while waiting on people to log into their users

"I mean, I know I could make a manual directory, and then go into the registry to point it, but that is just too much work."

I.T. coworker: "Yeaaaa I thought about that once too, sadly that is as crazy as trying to just reset their passwords or even setting up a temporary roaming profile. Sadly the only solution is waiting."

"Isn't the entire reason we have remote access onto every computer on the facility and a MOE to have high speeds from across the state due to us being unable to wait?"

coworker: "Yea pretty much."

Very curious that the effective response to a global crisis is to stop all the shitty parts of capitalism as quickly as possible. Suspend rents, interest, loans, provide people with healthcare, and the ability to get food. The host body is in trouble and the parasite ceases

"...As far as I’m aware, Waterfox has never been listed anywhere as a privacy tool, and rightly so. It is a privacy conscious web browser. Some users seem to have taken news of Waterfox’s funding to spell the end of what Waterfox never was; I just hope people keep a level head and try and rationalise things.

Throughout the years people have always asked about Waterfox and privacy, and if they’ve ever wanted more than it can afford, I’ve always pushed them to use Tor. Waterfox was here for customisations and speed, with a good level of privacy."

Good level = none

Finding fresh spruce needles in the jars and soil, I am worried that the overnight sprouts of several plants withering and dying.

Five monitors, and I use them for diaspora instances, emails, and facebook. And then 2 pis, one for weather the other for watching TV on Kodi.
