Tell him to fuck off and do his job.
I'd bet incompetence, not apathy.
And there it is.
Typical Peter Principle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle
heh probably right.
Standard "fake it 'til you make it" bullshit. Annoys the hell out of me. It's borderline narcissistic personality disorder / high functioning sociopathy, and far too common in the business world.
fake it until you get a job where no work just bullshitting required?
JUST group email all the techs and CC as many people as possible with the document asking them to double check be sure to include original email, will guarantee you will never be asked again.
EDIT - be sure it isn't a genuine "mind checking my work I'm not 100% confident I got it correct" request which is a humble acknowledgement of your tech skill, if it is that one then "code pair" review the document, which is you both sit at 1 computer and check the doco together, genuine requests for help will be cooperative.
Read "Snakes in Suits":
Usually these folks crave either attention or status (or both), and will stick around as long as they can get it while lumping everyone else with their work. The moment the cracks show, they blame some poor Patsy, and smokebomb on to the next role to rinse and repeat.
It's a life-long pursuit for these folks. Ironically, much higher effort than doing "the right thing", but you can't convince someone with terrible mental health of that sort of logic.
In the absence of historical wars, these people now populate business in high numbers. Their cold, completely empathy-free approach to things is seen as a positive in the corporate world where they flourish, until the damage is revealed.
So, anyone got offices in Russia? Looks like they're doing a country-wide DR test. Good luck, Russian businesses!
expect spam to plummet for half a day.
We should do one.
How much does Australia rely on it's external links, how much 'internet' would be functional should we be isolated.
Macros, interacting with my G-Docs...
It's more likely than you think.
The Groundhog has seen his Shadow, and we are in for 10 more years of Plugin-Hell.
Looks to me more like there putting in place their great firewall equivalent and re-routing fibre through their RUNET spying system.
I've already noticed in the last 6 or so months my spam volumes have already gone down 50%, i guess there is far less money to be made spamming folk nowadays. stealing peoples shit and crypto and crypto locking shit is where the money is at.
Sure. We should also completely eliminate pollution, solve poverty, and remove big business' excessive influence in politics.
Chances of all of these things happening are roughly equal.
Not with that kind of attitude!
*finds an axe*
Attempting to use the attitude necessary gets you put on a watch list. Conform, you mindless plebeian!
As it says in that Peter Principle, "internal consistency is valued more highly than efficient service". Because change is a pain, amirite.
And eradicate silly superstitions like religion.
My imaginary friend could beat up your imaginary friend.
holy shit, I had a manager of staff at a site i looked after whose that down to the T.
I'd post more about her but she's part of an ongoing IBAC investigation lol.
Shitposting from 30,000 feet....
Who has critical information in email? Do people still not put important shit somewhere else?
Christ, I could lose every email I've ever recieved and not give a shit.
The owner appears to be getting a lot of sympathy on Twitter with people "surprised by the evil doer". Meanwhile more technical discussion places are all asking the same question about his shitty backups.
Oh look we dont have a physical media backup stratedgy so hackers deleted all our backups.
