I will never buy Lenovo. I did not like them before they got caught stealing info.
ALso, tha tis Windows 10 S mode. No thanks.
Wait - stealing info? I don't know about that one.
I know about Superfish - installed shim in network stack you couldn't get rid of to allow advertisers, etc access into encrypted transmissions
and the BIOS thing would would reinstall the Lenovo tools under windows...
That's what Superfish does, sends data back to a Lenovo "partner" company. They can steal any data they want, and you can do nothing about it.
OH I didn't realize it was actually sending data back to partners.. I thought it's general purpose was to insert ads... of course, it could do any damned thing it wanted....
Right, exactly, it was an unlimited capability device. It could inject or retrieve data in either direction. In order to inject, it would have to send back first.
I have no idea what we are talking about anymore ;)
Kung Flu or Corona Virus or the astronomical costs of health related stuff... Or some combination there of.
OH is that all? we're all fooked - that's all I know.
my own opinion that no one has asked for or cares about -
The pandemic will end (end-ish) when those with co-morbidities get it and die off. Those left behind will get Covid again and again just like people get a cold or flu again and again.
I have zero expectation that a vaccine will wipe this thing out...
That said - I'll be happily wrong if we instead end up like measles and the vaccine does prevent the disease... but I certainly don't expect that to the be the case.
So with my opinion being what is it - how long do we keep things locked down, destroying the economy, etc?
So as we pack to move I am very carefully unloading books that I don't feel that we should store, ship, and unpack in a foreign country. But it's hard, I own SO many books still, even after going through this process many times, and there are many that are like unread or I want to read with my kids. But HB had a deal on RA Salvatore books this week, so I bought like 20 RAS Drizzt titles and then was happy to put all of those physical books into donation boxes. That freed up a lot of moving box space!
Am I the only person that has ADD so bad that you start a million projects and never finish any of them? If you have overcome something like this, what was the secret?............................ SQUIRREL!!!!!
We don't ever overcome it. We just search for tools to better list it(documentation) so we can always see how much we will never finish :confounded:
I'm convinced that I was put on this world to accomplish certain number of things... Right now, I'm so far behind, I could live to be 300.
I've worked in loads of different roles and industries. I find that as IT is just the infrastructure component of business, and that separating the two is nearly impossible, that over the years I've moved from being an IT generalist to a business generalist and now tackle IT from above, dealing as much with the overarching business concerns as the IT ones.
