There's no "I" in Teams. But there is a Steam!
yes yes the i in teams is in the A-hole
Challenges or not, I'm talking about the notable changes in the culture of an organisation as the population grows. The is the corollary of Price's Law - in order for the competent population to grow linearly, the incompetent needs to grow exponentially.
In a smaller org, a new tool can be rolled out, and 90% of the population can self-learn and adapt.
In a larger org, a new tool can be rolled out, and 10% of the org can self learn and adapt. 40% will complain they need training and hand holding and help. 50% just wont even bother.
The "challenges" go well beyond sheer bulk. Large orgs are a haven for the less generally competent. And the cultural onflow effects beyond just mass coordination efforts are enormous.
God i think i just had a mini mind orgasm.
Don't get too excited. Those same people will likely get back to the office and plan a dozen meetings in the first 5mins thinking how they can 'get back to being productive'.
Anybody else seeing issues with Telstra and/or Optus network? I'm struggling to get through to anyone and hearing of others the same..
Not yet, but i fully expect that now since its becoming hard to do things via hardline providers that the mobile network is next.
I'm not sure it's just mobile network.. I'm trying to call a vendor 1300 number, and the mobile number of my account manager. Can't get through to either from my mobile or from my desk phone..
if its mynetfone there currently up the duff atm, or lots of folk that use mynetfones call hunt feature on their 1300/1800
Not mynetfone, but you're not far off...
MNF resells to a lot of VSP's as well.
That would explain why I couldnt get through to my vet earlier. Sat quiet for 10 seconds before giving me a number disconnected message.
Not surprised that systems are a bit forked right now with the massive loads.
Yep - that's exactly what I've been getting.
Well they emailed me back, so it's not an internet issue for them. Definitely IP Voice related.
They are on HFC NBN in the Inner West of Sydney, but that doesnt mean squat when it comes to VoIP
My last 5 video conferences started with someone asking me "how I'm dealing with all of this", and me responding that I first did work from home over a decade ago and this isn't anything new.
Awkward silence, someone makes a "tech nerd" joke, and we get on with it.
Incredible just how "far off future" this banal reality is to a bunch of people who use Face Time and Tim Tok every fucking day.
Today I learnt:
xfreerdp is very, very, very good and I've now tweaked the options enough to have pretty fonts and routing bluetooth audio/drives whatever so I can use my stupid windows laptop as a headless Skype for Business thing and that's it.
Well Ausnog has lit up with comments around Telstra's inter-carrier links being full. That would cause a world of hurt to communications!
Microsoft constantly wanting to screw me over with a "Cloud Readiness Assessment" performed by some offshore dude.
Perfect timing for it to. Ugh, we run 90% of hosted/cloud software in the business. Piss off and leave me alone.
Indeed. I dumped rdesktop for xfreerdp about 2 years back I think (was looking for RemoteFX support) and have never looked back.
late 80s work from home
manually typing AT commands to connect to NCR mainframe, blistering 1200baud if was lucky.
