I tried a lift and shift of my on-prem bridge to become a cloud bridge, but it was more expensive. Fuck it, I'm going back to ferries to get across waterways.
You spelled 'brian' wrong. Back 2 skool 4u.
That Excel Covid case fuck up in the UK has been estimated to have caused 120k additional cases and 1500 deaths
Wonder if this is the first case of mass fatality due to excel?
I seriously doubt it to be honest
Was the root cause doing a find and replace of "X" where the resulting string was prefixed with zeros, across billions of rows?
I think I may have worked out who Luke212 works for.
And what that overnight processing job was that was stopped when his computer rebooted... Excell updaiting it's links and tables...
Couldnt possibly be. There has got to be instances of people "going Postal" over it. Likely IT people who are sick of complaints from Finance that their sheets, that are linked to 10 other sheets and set to re-calculate every single time (and they refuse to turn that off) take too long to calculate on their computer, and that they need the latest i9 based machine. Bonus points when they get the CFO involved "because they cant do their work, and IT arent helping"
Double bonus points when said CFO excel sheets don't calculate properly, because said CFO keeps clicking on that message about an invalid link "Because it always comes up".
I keep getting an error message every time I open it.
Well what does it say?
I don't know. Something about a thing.
Trigger warning please
I don't have time for warnings.
It's all too technical for me.
I probably should have written it down.
"I don't know, it's just an error OK? Can't you fix it? I'm going out to lunch, my password is on a post it note on my screen."
unable to replicate fault, ticket closed.
password reset also.
more likely it's "can't you just fix it??" and when you get there, they're nowhere to be found.
pet peeve, someone sends an email saying call me. promptly gets up from desk and walks away after hitting send.
i always reply, call me when you are available because fuck you guy.
