For the love of God...did the job description have blind and overzealous as desirable qualities?

I trimmed by pubes, first time in a long time, and now all of my pants are too loose.

That's how I became the CTO--- with no appreciable compensation for it.

I'm not very happy about it. I ended up getting the computer fixed but the person forgot their goddamn password so it fucked up the whole keychain.

 

Apple is really great for personal use but as soon as you want to use them on a network and with Exchange they turn on you.

The exception to that is Melbourne/Sydney they have nice weather but fit everything else.

Pretty much, I don't read it any longer because its shit, just read it on a news site.

Me too, but she's a lesbian Dutch so you can imagine how fun that party was. NOT!

Yeah. As an acquaintance put it, Apples are not real business machines. They never seem to work well on a domain that in not set up for Apple exclusively. One of my colleagues (who suckered us into hiring his daughter "temporarily") wanted to get her an Apple b/c that is what she is used to. My response was do it and then you get to do the it work--- without hiring anyone else. I am not dumping 5 K in hardware and software down the drain for a lightly used workstation just b/c it is something she is "used" to. My response now is: You want to use a Mac -- fine--- here is your citrix log on.

IDK --- those Dutchs can get a bit cray cray... not that I know anything about that or anything.

Funny you should say that. I have worked with a partner from a big law firm (I would venture to guess 100x larger than yours and with a full dedicated IT staff), and it appeared that they had approximately the same policy. He seemed to have a preference for the Apple...and while maybe he had a local copy of Outlook (not sure he actually did), everything else was just Citrix apps.

Although, honestly, the little macbook air was a pretty good machine for him. If you are the kind of senior lawyer who just sends emails, reviews/drafts documents, and maybe has to open the occasional excel file your consultants sent you, then you don't really need much in terms of software (and those apps all function fine over Citrix). The Air is tiny, light, and has loads of battery life (helpful when you mostly sit in meetings all day).

The last few times I have been in meetings with him, he has just had an ipad mini (don't even think he had a keyboard case, just a smart cover or something to allow it to stand up). Mobile apple mail connects fine to exchange, and with the right apps, you should have zero trouble reviewing word/excel/pdf documents. I think there's even a fully functional WebEx app (although if you are in a meeting, odds are that someone is projecting it).

A former colleague and casual friend (one of those friends you don't become super close to but are always fond of) died yesterday. Evidently, she managed to drink herself to death in what I'm guessing were her mid-thirties. (I had no idea about the alcoholism - if I'd thought about it, I'd have pegged her as one of those cheerfully non-judgmental teetotalers, based on completely superficial impressions and assumptions.)

As I said, not a terribly close friend, but definitely a good egg.

Yeah we are only about 50 plus or minus the ebbs and flows of attys. Most lawyers in general have very limited needs overall. They need a few browser windows, couple word documents, adobe, and the billing program. Esp if you are not the type that needs to multitask, a lite notebook like that would suffice. I don't think I could work on a laptop like that. I have one of the most sophisticated practices with the most need for technology and superior computing power in the firm and I still make do with less than many people. I am throwing off data at a crazy rate , such that I have a personal NAS on the network just for my 5 plus TB of data.

What I have realized I need is a system wide reliable DMS. (Document management system) The one some of the attys use is janky and can be corrupted and rendered useless fairly easily.

I'm surprised Google doesn't make apps for attorneys considering they employ a nations worth of them.

I'm sorry to hear that, lawyerdad.


Here's a conversation that happened earlier today at a department store:

SA: Hey, Hey wa choo lookin' for?
Me: Dress socks for men.
SA: Haw!!! You ain't gonna find that on this level you got to go down!
Me: Is this a job you get paid for, are were you sentenced to customer service as punishment for crimes?

After that encounter I walked clear across the mall was not going to buy socks from that extablishment. Got some socks with flowers on them at Nordstrom. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I should learn to stop clicking on Facebook videos of animals being rescued because I cry every time.
