    Adobe are Shit
    Edge and Chrome PDF Readers are shit.

    but PDF as a file format is pretty widely accepted, Everything has libraries for outputting them.

    What are you trying to do with PDF's that leads you to the conclusion that PDF as a file format, is a complete turd?

    I asked Elon why his Flash Memory was failing.
    He told me it was a wearable part - like tyres.

    What gets my goat is it's 2021 and I still have to tell orgs then can read and write PDFs without Adobe tools.

    Did you know I used to sell a "virtual PDF printer" long ago which was a Mini ITX box with Linux, Samba and CUPS-PDF? Sold it to a couple of architecture mobs who paid a fortune in licensing for either Adobe shit or proprietary "PDF printer drivers" that supported their A1/A0 CAD plots, and my system + support cost them less! :lol:

    I laughed.

    I laughed some more.

    Oh god stahp, my sides! :lol:

    Having an issue with a few users at one of my sites. It's a 2012 R2 domain with win10 20H2 laptops/surface pros and mapped network drives. When connected to the LAN everything works fine, logins go as quickly as expected, mapped drives are available etc. When not connected to the network though, the login hangs at the desktop before desktop icons etc appear, and you get the spinning wheel of boredom over the task bar. It hangs like this for 5+mins before eventually giving up and letting you use the machine. If I remove the mapped drives and reboot though, login is back to normal again, and if I just connect it to the network, it comes good almost immediately.

    At a bit of a loss on this one, I've had machines with mapped drives on and off the network for years with no issues, not sure why here should be special.

    It's always DNS.

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles\Set maximum wait time

    Have a play with that

    It sounds like something is trying to run/load from one of the mapped drives and takes a while to timeout, but when the drives are unmapped it times out immediately as it can't access the drive. I'd try to find what this is via event viewer, checking their startup items, or running process monitor filtering to only show requests to any non-internal drives.

    Also sounds like you're using persistent drive maps, I'd change these to non-persistent but applied via GPP (or at worst a logon script) so the drives are only attempting to be mapped if they're actually on the network.
