Our Open-Plan Office Failed, So We’re Moving to a Towering Panopticon - McSweeney’s Internet Tendency
Was thinking this morning how media loves to talk about downtown office-area lunch counters having a hard time since office workers shifted to work-from-home, but they don't explore neighbourhood cafes that do great business now with the #WFH people able to nip out for coffee and a snack at their local. Also all those who go out for lunch near home for a change of scene, or to meet with a colleague/customer/consultant.

What is the compassionate, socially elegant way to tell a coworker he smells?
I like the guy, but whenever he enters the #office I've got to leave.
And no, I don't want to go complain to our manager: we're peers, we solve problems without The Powers That Be, I'm not a fucking Karen.

#Microsoft hat wohl #Office2013 kaputt gemacht. Auf vielen Systemen unserer Kunden wo es noch läuft poppt jetzt eine Meldung beim Start von #Excel #Outlook #Word oder anderen auf die nur sagt:
> "Das Betriebssystem ist momentan nicht zum Ausführen dieser Anwendung konfiguriert"
Abhilfe schafft entweder eine Deinstallation, Neustart, Neuinstallation oder eine Online Reparatur (Wobei letztere das Problem nicht zuverlässig behebt)
Great set of tactics in this article about ‘overwork’:
✅ Acknowledge the degree to which compulsively working is true for you.
✅ Focus on two primary commitments: sleep and exercise.
✅ Choose one activity in your life that gives you the purest enjoyment.
✅ Become more aware of what you’re feeling in your body, especially after you’re working for extended periods of time.
Arbeitest du oft im Homeoffice?
Remote-Arbeit ist gut fürs Klima. Das zumindest legt eine neue Studie aus den USA nahe. Hybrid-Modelle wirken sich hingegen deutlich weniger stark auf Emissionen aus.

Genuine but naive question: do beautiful printers exist?
I don’t mean “can you find something attractive in common printers?” because you probably can but I don’t care to try.
I mean: are there any printers that’ve been subject to the same aesthetic care as, say, the iMac?
(I don’t care if you hate the iMac. Use your own example, then.)
Over summer, our #office has been reorganized: no more fixed desks, various zones for various communication/work issues. A clear “clean desk” policy which seems to work.
It’s really nice and friendly, space for everybody with way fewer desks than before when we had difficulties installing a working place for a new person.
I much more prefere working from home than before
I realized that not knowing where to work today and who will be around me puts me under enormous #stress
Leader of opposition Ambadas Danve questioned the Maharashtra government over spending lakhs of rupees on a private building, especially when Maharashtra's budget is 'in deficit'. The new office at Nariman Point will cost the government Rs 21 lakh a month in rent

App #updates with Microsoft #Intune. When you have a device managed in Intune, it's a safe assumption that you're also using Microsoft 365 Apps (#Office) and probably also #Edge. But did you know that updates to these products are not included in #Windows Updates?
You can use a third-party tool to manage app updates or use the built-in options directly. Third-party tools usually give more control and customization options, but again, it's another tool that needs to be purchased, installed, and maintained. And if that tool has a security vulnerability or malicious code embedded directly into its code (supply chain attack), it's a huge problem.
So I rather recommend using the native capabilities directly in the system and Intune. For Microsoft 365 Apps and Microsoft Edge, the basic configuration of updates is part of the deployment of the app. Additional configuration options are then within the Settings Catalog, where in addition to the update channel, you can set things like defer updates, force updates including restarting the app, etc.
I want a clean office, but i also want flowers and memories everywhere
I acutally want a big map of the bunniekingdom in the back, so most of the deko will move when this is done.
Though finishing the map will take ages :D

😃 Hallo, ihr Hübschen.😃
Ich weiß, DaKine.
Ich doch auch. Du kennst mich.
Habe heute Nacht #AfD #Berlin b. #bluesky gemeldet: "#AfD (#Alternative for #Germany) is monitored in Germany by the #Office for the #Protection of the #Constitution. Is a #fascist, #misogynistic and #xenophobic #party.
They want to #abolish #democracy, even though they are already back in the #German #Bundestag!"
Bin gespannt, was der blaue #Himmel damit anfängt.
💚 Liebe Grüße. 💚
Es wäre klasse wenn auch im professionellen Kontext nur noch offene Office Anwendungen und Dateiformate der Normalfall sind, dewegen ist es toll wenn auch im schulischen Bereich mehr Wissen dazu geteilt wird:

IBM setzt weltweit auf eine rasche Rückkehr ins Büro!
Mitarbeiter:innen, die höchstens 80 Kilometern vom Büro entfernt wohnen, sollen mindestens drei Tage pro Woche vor Ort am Schreibtisch sein – mit der Begründung, so „mehr Zeit miteinander zu verbringen“.
Was denkst du über diese Rückkehr-ins-Büro-Maßnahme von IBM? Wie würdest du damit umgehen, wenn dein Unternehmen ein ähnliches Modell einführt?

#Teneo members represent different facets of the conservative movement writ large.
Some Teneo members were “very strong Trump defenders,” #Baehr said in the 2019 town hall video, while others have opposed Trump vehemently. Baehr said there were clear divisions within the group’s members about immigration and trade policy.
“Hopefully other ones, maybe Green New Deal, I hope that’s more like 99 to 1” in opposition, he said.
In the town hall video Baehr assured new members that Teneo “is private and #confidential.” He said the group will never reveal the names of its members without their permission, though they are free to disclose their membership if they want to. Members must be in their 40s or younger to join.
A Leo acolyte and member of Teneo’s Midwest membership committee, Will #Scharf, is now running for Missouri attorney general. Campaign finance records show that dozens of Teneo members made substantial early contributions to Scharf’s campaign, including Leo, Baehr and other members of Teneo’s leadership, who last year each gave the maximum allowable donation of $2,650.
In an email, Scharf said many of his “dearest friends are members of Teneo, and it has been a privilege to be involved with such an extraordinarily talented and committed group of young conservatives.”
«We had four lawyers, three #privacy experts, and two campaigners look at Microsoft's new Service Agreement, which will go into effect on 30 September, and none of our experts could tell if #Microsoft plans on using your personal #data – including audio, video, chat, and attachments from 130 products, including #Office, #Skype, #Teams, and #Xbox – to train its #AI models.»

A look back: Galaxy word processor
As an undergraduate student in the early 1990s, I wrote all my class papers using WordPerfect for DOS. WordPerfect was a powerful desktop word processor that was used in offices all over the world. But WordPerfect was quite expensive; my student edition of WordPerfect cost around $300.
When the new version of WordPerfect came out, I just couldn't afford to buy it. F
Hands down best thing about the #office is my work wife bringing in mint chocolate chip cupcakes 🧁 🤤
Today we have an after work team outing, so I’m a little worried about my social battery
How was everyone’s Monday? Did you accomplish everything you hoped to?
So, I may be a "doomsayer" (I consider myself a realist), but I'm always trying to see if there's a solution to getting us out of the mess we're in. Perhaps I would describe myself as an optimistic pessimist. Anyhow, based on my recent research, here are some of the solutions I think we (humanity) should pursue collectively...
1. Plug up the #MethaneLeaks! Seriously! That's a big part of the problem!
2. Make the price of #meat expensive! I remember when having meat was considered a special occasion -- not a daily occurrence.
3. Make things out of #RomanConcrete. Now that we've cracked the recipe, there's no excuse not to use it! Especially with rising sea levels (Roman concrete holds up better when exposed to water).
4. Manufacture stuff that lasts! No more #PlannedObsolescence -- items that can't be upgraded and/or repaired by a skilled user or a local repair shop!
6. Utilize new (and ancient) technologies to the max! #SolarPrisms, reflective white paint, building new structures with #skywells, #geothermal and other ways to cool/heat spaces without using #FossilFuels!
Oh gosh, I need to pack for the #office trip today!
We’re all wearing animal onsies now, right? Because I def have a BAT one! 🦇
Going into an #office next week for the first time since before the pandemic…
What do I say?
What do I wear?
How do I human??
Like this??? —> :blobfoxnomcat:
Seems like I'll have to return to an office in the near future, so now I have to ask; #fedi what the heck is appropriate office-attire?
Unfortunately, I can't just continue my ~10 year-streak of wearing hoodies and the occasional shirt (if clients) to work.
What are the rules? Where do I even start? Help?
'new revelations, like the discovery of a document proving that #Post #Office investigators were ordered to group suspected subpostmasters in racial categories such as “negroid types” and “dark-skinned European types”. This advice was still in use in 2011. That document was also somehow not put before the inquiry, would you believe, along with tens of thousands of others the Post Office has been accused of serially withholding'
Guardian opinion piece on the UK #post #office scandal, by Marina Hyde
'in which totally innocent subpostmasters, the very backbone of villages and communities, were turned into criminals to cover up the fact that the Post Office’s Horizon computer system didn’t work properly. Each was told by the #PostOffice that no one else had any problems with the system. Vast sums were effectively looted from them to make up accounting shortfalls, before they were prosecuted anyway'
