correct

big business can't fail because they keep the system going. business own the government anyway, government are useless fucks, corporates now have more power. just waiting for the day for when these muscles are flexed. can't be too far away ...

I agree . The solution is the same as for solving white collar crime: actual meaningful penalties and jail time if you offend, and a robust, massively beefed up ASIC equivalent that's not retarded and not afraid to go up against the big boys.

what if you only get $20,000 sales? thats the other stress of small business owner!
If I genuinely only got $20k then the business case does not exist. If that happens I would pack up and go back to my old employer.

I honestly doubt it at this stage, we will be profitable, its just a matter of how profitable. So far we have all of the largest workshops on board apart from Nizpro and that is only because we haven't spoken to them yet. There is a niche market that is ripe for the taking here in Australia.

I haven't watched that show but it seems equal parts amusing (schadenfreude style) and frustrating as all fuck (because of smug panelists).


to stay remotely on topic - part of the selling point of cloud is that it's supposed to be more agile, in that it should be entirely possible to setup an environment in less time than traditional methods (order equipment, deliver, pay consultants/whatever to come audit, setup...) Got quoted 7 months for a small cloud environment. Ya, no thanks guys. Won't name who, of course.

For some reason our the corporate side of us (education) is upgrading to exchange 2016. Staff and students are on Office 365. Can't really think of why they wouldn't migrate as well?

far too many things to take into account to make a comment here.

Are you both part of the same forest/domain?

Cost of infrastructure to house onsite accounts for all students would be the primary reason i think.

Also there is probably separation from both silos, rightfully so as well.

EDU Students is typically given O365 for Free. Faculty is a seriously reduced cost.

You can achieve segregation in a variety of ways - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azu...ect-topologies

Student 365 acc's for free? Interesting.

My daughter is in a Catholic School and she has google apps account, wonder if it is free or we subsidise it via school fees.
