    I have not managed browsers in-browser for very close to 20 years.

    Then again, I haven't worked in "one OS on the desktop" locations in the same amount of time.

    Lose 50KG of body fat in under a year, and there are some not so nice side effects.

    Still, beats obesity and dying of heart disease, I guess.

    That makes 2 of us; but...

    Chrome://flags - These are experimental settings, so we wont include them in our provided admx files, have fun modifying text files like its 1998

    If they are experimental then they should fuckin' default to Off, and be opt-in... not Default to On, Be Opt-out, and require a hacky way of opting out in a managed environment.


    Chrome://discards

    we couldn't work out how to lower memory usage, so here's an ugly hack we stole from plugins, also this is in memory only, and doesn't persist between sessions.

    Hopefully Edge + Chromium is the best of both worlds.

    I have 1 fucken coffee everytime I'm on site, the % of times I've had to fix the coffee machine because of lazy fuck employees far exceeds the statistical norm for having the machine run out of water or need capsule emptying vs the number of coffees I've consumed... fuck people.

    PS - fuck printers, if businesses had no printers then kitchens would be void of stupid homemade signs that people ignore.

    Sounds like there's enough used capsules around, he could spell it out by stapling capsules to the wall.

    bet that won't get ignored.

    Agreed, but imagine the disaster if the mouth breathers were left to fed with real coffee machines.

    You say that, now you're all nice and caffeinated, But when the withdrawals hit, you'll be begging for my Boiled Piss + International Roast blend.

    You guys obviously haven't been to the U.S and had to drink that swill they call coffee. Drip coffee that has an underlying taste or caramel or burnt flavour. Then they put in dairy free powered crema.....

    Yes I have, HQ used to be in Detroit of all places, spent the first few days roaming the streets, fighting off gangs (this was back in the early 2000's, it's gotten somewhat gentrified since) trying to find a place that did espresso, found one 5 blocks away from the office.

    fun fact, the GM headquarters building/complex is half hotel. I was there on the day they announced their bankruptcy/put their hand out to the US gov.


    HQ is now Boston, much better more options for good passable coffee.

    Yeah you have to look hard in a lot of places in the US to find decent espresso. Most of them still think Starbucks is awesome.
