    Recorded a short video with a borrowed camcorder from work. USB connection isn't working to get files to my computer.. ok.. contact sony. Yep, apparently I need some software that supposedly came with the camcorder to get files. No, they can't link me a download because (whatever). Contact place I borrowed camcorder from, and lady working there only knows how to check in/out items. No idea about software. Told to email her boss for help.
    The boss who I have been emailing repeatedly to get a reservation to pick the camcorder up from. Who ended up not actually making a reservation, so I had to do it at the pick-up desk and got a camcorder that wasn't charged so I had to spend an hour charging instead of using. And who has been very unresponsive to my emails so far.
    Great.

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    In thinking it over, I might yet have a chance with Google, since part of what they look for is ability to learn and native intelligence. And I feel like I showed those aspects.

    So my work is trying out Teams. What are folks experiences with it? Strengths, weaknesses? We already use Basecamp for project management. Will this be able to replace that? It doesn't seem like it does "assigned" work like Basecamp's To-dos or other ticket style systems.

    We're using Teams currently, but only as a Slack and (at some point in the future) Skype for Business replacement, but you can add a Microsoft Planner tab to a Team and that does assigned work. We're using it as an ersatz CRM system and it works pretty well so far. As long as you can convince people to use it.

    @David_T What do you use to get some CRM functions from Teams? We have some basic customer info etc that would be useful to share with everyone, but haven’t found a smooth way to do it w Teams yet.

    I kinda feel like Google of all places should be ok with people not having memorized stuff that you’d normally just... google.

    I'm immensely bored, so today I am writing up guided note-sheet assignments for prehistory.

    Cause what students really crave is learning about the Bronze Age.

    Love it as well, it doesn't have so many techs to discover and every goodie hut you find usually has a great bonus. But with most civs you also have strong enough units to stop barbarians from ruining your day. I feel that in later eras I need to micromanage too many things simultaneously.

    Fuckin', most doctor's offices don't even know how HIPAA works. Ask tynic or bowen.

    Used to work in eHealth.

    So many times I'm at a clinic or something (Canada, at least!) and sitting in an office alone with a computer and it's just... open, with information up, logged in as someone.

    Like jesus, every single thing provides you with ways to lock, you've been mandatory trained on this, I know there's no excuse yet here we always fucking are.

    Also that clerks/providers are monitored and trigger alerts for anything remotely suspiciously searched and get nailed, but sysadmins pretty much are invisible with full access to anything cause I guess so.

    When my mom was still practicing, her office installed sensors on the computer monitors so the computers would lock whenever there hadn't been a person sitting in front of them for more than five minutes.

    The doctors (including my mom) all put paper cups over the sensors because they were fed up with having to login multiple times during every patient visit.

    Honestly, the only way I can see medical personnel not being lax about computer security is if it requires no extra effort on their part (not that I blame them, for the record). Give everyone an RFID tag that automatically unlocks the computer you're working at, and have the computer lock itself whenever there's no tag in range... except then I suppose they'd just put the tag next to the computer and leave it there. Hm.

    We have an SSO solution using RFID chips in our badges. You log in once with your password, and then for the next 12 hours you can just tap your badge on the reader to lock/unlock your workstation, or transfer you session to a new workstation.
    Works pretty well, though one time I when I was on the helpdesk we had a really weird ticket that took a few days to sort out.
    Every badge is actually 2 badges, with identical fronts and different info printed on the back, then sandwich boarded on your clip with other stuff like fire or stroke protocols in there.
    When this doctors badge was made they accidentally used two cards with RFID chips, so every time he tapped, it was a coin flip as to which chip the reader would pick up. If the chip was the one he was registered with, it was fine, but if it was the other one, it would prompt for his password and if he logged in that way, it clear the old chip's registration and replace with the new one.

    Typically, yeah. Most fishing nets have holes that are a function of a thread or cord being tied into a meshed pattern.

    What if it's a much finer net though, like for catching whitebait? Where the weave of the fabric itself is the mesh.

    It has fewer holes, but maybe not less hole.

    Keep in mind, we switched off Salesforce because it was too big for us and the team lead actually wanted to do everything in just Outlook and SAP, so anything is pretty much a step up. Right now we're just doing tasks in Planner to mimic cases (which is working quite well) and using the Wiki for shared information (...). I'm also trying to get people to chat in the designated channel rather than person to person, but for the last couple of weeks it's been either just me or me and one other person, so sometimes it's hard to not fall back into habits.

    We just watched the Mythbusters last night where they tested whether a truck full of birds would weigh less if all of the birds inside took flight and my mind is still reeling.
    It does not, it weighs the same whether the birds are all sitting down or whether they're all flying.

    Like I understand why the answer is what it is, scientifically, but there's a part of my brain that's still running in circles about it.

    OK yeah that one felt weird until I mentally swapped the birds out for fish swimming in water.

    My favorite myth busters is when they take thought experiments you could perfectly easily work through on paper and then say “but fuck it, we’re filling this truck with chickens because it’s awesome”

    Always reminds me of the bit in Dirk Gently’s etc: “it’s a thought experiment! You’re not supposed to actually do it-“ “Doesn’t matter, they got this cat and a box...”

    Mythbusters confirmed that troll physics works though.

    You can absolutely blow your own sail (it's just a less efficient way of moving than using the fan as a propeller under water).

    A lot of those experiments are still great though, because while the conclusion is often all but forgone, they usually have to come up with really interesting ways to take out all the other variables

    Also they usually get some pretty cool shots, like when they fired a ball off the back of a truck at the same speed that the truck was traveling forward

    Predictably, the ball just drops, but the way it slides out of the barrel before it does so and remains stationary respective to the camera is just so cool looking

    Never seen the episode, but wouldn't a plane need air moving under the wings to properly achieve liftoff, making a conveyor belt useless?

    Wait, is CSV similar to .txt? I thought both were just file types that you could easily open with Notepad?

    they're both just text files. .csv implies it contains comma separated values, and Excel will open it too.
