Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Need help updating my workplaces. . . well everything.
More specifically I need a way to present to the store manager why our decade old computers, shitty public wi-fi and archaic Computer scheduling systems need updated badly.
There's no tech support as far as I or several manager know . Every Computer is running IE 5 i on I assume Windows 98 ( not terrible but at least update the broswer). The Wi-fi will boot you off the network if more than three people are on it( this is the public network. For customers. we average about 300 a day .I'd say a third or so have a computer .)
The newest computer is an Apple in the graphic design department which I suspect someone brought from home.
To their credit they do have office.
Our Server room is a jungle of cables and black boxes stuffed in a closet. They keep the door open because I assume there's no cooling system.
The Schedule system is so slow that not a single salaried manager uses it.It just sits there mocking people who use it to request days off. I will admit that the Texlon system is actually fairly up to date which is mind boggling( for those unfamiliar a Texlon is a hand scanner/PDA that is used for inventory purposes).
I want to point out this is a billion dollar company . Our store is supposed to be the Model for all others like it in the future. It's literally a year old. It's kind of absurd how many corners they cut in this regard.
I don't really have more than a basic knowledge of computers so I need a way to present this to the store manager so that he thinks " this kid is modern we need management like him. Bringing ideas to the table " and not " Okay he's volunteering to update our companies systems we can probably keep him at the same pay grade "
