Are you hoping to reuse them, looking for data or can you not just shred them?
Believe me brother, if i could, they would be in the bin. Most of them have financial data from 99-02 on them, the outgoing finance manager didn't like using the share drive back then, well before my time.
Why would you need data that old? Aren't financial requirements 10yrs? 16+ seems excessive and if they need a report i'd ask if they can rebuild it.
Again, you would think right, government has differing requirements, we are required to keep some stuff forever, especially EOY financial reports.
Yeah fuck that, i'd be pushing it back to finance and setting them up with the FDD. This isnt a technical issue, this is a man power issue caused by that departments poor policies.
Yeah, you know what, im just gonna plug in a podcast and zone out for the day. Even though the rhythmic sound of floppy drives whirring takes me right back to 1997.
i'm starting to miss the sound of hard drives, although it irks me no end when someone uses hdd noises outside of context on tele or in movies.
maybe i should just use an old raptor as a swapfile or something.
I got you fam:
First meeting with my new manager. Death by Powerpoint. Kill me. Please.
Lucky You lol....
Oh no, all these disks don't seem to work oh well such a shame.....
They wouldn't work if I was asked to test them all.
Stolen from the Programming Jokes thread.
I hate this.
If you're buying 4x$3.5k laptops per month and have to put it on a credit card rather than an account* you should get the business to provide you with a company card - not just borrow one from someone else and hope they have enough $$ on it to go through, and definitely don't put that much on your personal card.
* seriously at that sort of volume you should have no problem getting an account set up with a VAR.
What's taking you an hour to do, and can you automate it? From your previous posts it sounds like the company is expanding quite decently, so automating account setup would be wise, no need to worry about short notice aside from hardware wise, and just make it well known that hardware purchases take X time (include time to get spending approval if required), if people don't give you the required notice to get hardware, it's on them.
Was going to post this, although time escaped me, the best part is the several references to System Of A Down, obligatory love Serj Tankian:
Day 2: The curse of the never-ending floppy stack. Somehow, there seem to be more than yesterday. Oh well, another podcast, and more coffee.
