    I'm required by law to keep signed physical copies of all quality documents for 40 years or 25 years after we stop making the engine the documents cover, whichever is longer. We ship a couple dozen boxes of paperwork to Iron Mountain every week.

    Edit: The FAA doesn't mess around. I've only heard of them digging through our archives once in the past 20 years but it did happen.

    I know tons of people say I am far tougher than them for putting up with the stuff I do. I don't feel I am

    as an addendum to when I got my ID on Friday there are two businesses that do Id's in Nm MVD express is a private contactor for the state and MVD. When I went to the MVD he said it would cost me $10 for the ID in Cash and another 10 in cash or credit to get it as well as another fee {I told my brother he was trying to Poor tax me} MVD express sadly wanted 12 for my ID nothing more
    Still I do hate how this state likes to prey upon those in the grey area of poor

    I know I make fun of how the shopping malls are less than 60% full so I don't know why they promote how easy it is to start a business when most are a fly by night deal

    I hope that when you get somewhere better it's also much more bike-friendly, and ALSO that you end up getting yourself a bike with hydraulic disc brakes.

    They're so much better in every single way I don't even consider bikes without them.

    I am currently doing a side project for my boss that requires me to go through a bunch of paperwork and make sure it was properly filled out and filed and to show state/federal auditors were doing it they want me to print it all and physically mark it. I suggested doing it digitally but they literally didn't understand how I could digitally mark a document.

    I know I loved that cheap Schwinn I got it was leagues better than the cheap mongoose I will called quite dangerous to use [I still have to ride my dangerous bike since the Schwinn was stolen}
    It really bothered me how the city is pushing how bike friendly it is the lack of bike racks around as it's wrong I have to climb billboards and under bridges to hide and lock up my bike
    When I get a job I am buying that Schwinn again [it's only 250 and I will feel it's worth buying again}

    As a bike rider myself, I understand.
    However, I encourage you to use that $250 as part of your GTFO money and buy it again once you are somewhere better.

    I'm really surprised there hasn't been any breakthrough in printing to get rid of all these issues people have with them breaking constantly. Getting away from spinning and moving parts would improve their reliability a ton.

    I have put literally no thought into this at all but my instinct is that when it comes to moving away from motors and moving printer heads, space efficient paper feeding is one fundamental technological barrier, with reliable ink nozzles coming a strong second.
    If we stopped using paper, used photo sensitive material combined with negative impression flash-printing/fixing, I wonder what that would look like? Material costs would skyrocket and so would space requirements but they might be less bullshit.
    also if you looked at the printer it would blind you but wev.

    Nah, they'd make the printer cheap but jack up the price on the mirror shields you need to safely approach it.

    Loads of companies print vast amounts of stuff even if they have digital records.

    Take people's printers. Make off site mailing happen and take their printers so people have to get used to using digital media. Yes it can be annoying but it's cost saving, environmentally friendly and forces companies to develop properly reliable digital access to documentation.

    My wife works for a big faceless American corporation.

    This time every year there is a huge reorganization and round of redundancies.

    So every year there's a few weeks where we have to worry wether or not the cuts will hit my wife's team.

    Fortunately as we're in the UK we have quite good redundancy payments and get way more notice than her American counterparts.

    But how is this a good way to run a business? She lost a colleague last year in America who was in charge of developing a website for her project. He was booted out the door the same day he was made redundant so there was no handover. So that website was scrapped completely.

    They'll then hire a bunch of people but all that knowledge and experience is gone. How much manpower is lost every year trying to redo everything after a bunch of people are laid off?

    Of course the CEO still gets his bonus and 20 million dollars.

    We just need the potential for hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines from the regulators if this stuff doesn't work.

    Well my good news: They did server maintenance last night and the forums are no longer blocked. Small blessings.

    Potentially good news?: Remember the cyber security department at my work? The one where I was promised a job but the guy above it stepped in and said "No I like him where he is and we need someone with more experience anyway"? Well that guy quit last week. To be fair he was driving 2 hours each way so I can't blame him. They announced yesterday my boss is now their department head, and my boss told me shes going to be moving people around department when reviews come around next month. So uh...possible I'll get moved into Info Sec....

    Mother. Fucking. Teachers.

    My current battle in the quest to not have 73 printers in the building (no exaggeration) is that when the kids write a paper, making them print a copy for every kid in the class is the dumbest, most wasteful thing they could possible do. Seriously, every kid has a chromebook assigned to them that they can take home and everything. They have district google accounts. This is why Google Docs exists! Listen to me!

    NO! Stop printing out articles to read! GRAH!

    Ugghh. I had the dream again last night. The one where my manager asks me to go to fill in at the electronics boutique in the other mall. "Just see to the register while I do other things", except in the dream I haven't worked for electronics boutique for about a year, so I don't know how to do anything. but refusing would have meant losing valuable reference credentials.

    In reality I haven't worked for EB since like '04. BUT THE DREAM FEELS SO REAL.

    Ugh, now tongue blisters and constant tackyness and drymouth.

    I wanna blame the cold weather, sinus, and the shitty ratio of water to caffine last week. Calling nurse's hotline and regretting all those oranges I ate.

    Upside, free supervisor day so I can start whenever I want and focus on missed patrols.

    Downside, most likely sickness or cold weather callouts.

    Dreamed that I was somehow back being an IT support contractor, only since I was a contractor and not a regular employee they wouldn't give me access to any equipment storage or software log-ins, so the whole dream was me not having any tools to do my job, and the team lead constantly berating me for having to unlock/log into things for me.

    Probably being teachers it has been institutionally beaten into them that they must physically evidence every single thing they do or have given children, and the oversight requirements on them are hugely overbearing and outdated in their approach

    Baby steps. I have four MFPs with the SSO print queue and badging system setup. And the only reason I managed to get that is that their old method of tracking paper usage on the MFPs no longer worked or was supported.

    I still have 73 individual HP and Brother printers scattered through the building though, so my current tactic is to encourage as many people as I can to just move over to the MFPs exclusively and really really drag my feet on getting the old dying individual printers fixed when they start falling to pieces.

    Also stop printing everything.
