Just reserved a uhaul trailer to move the last of my stuff from the Cleveland apartment. Going to be out of there and back home in Amish Country.

RE: What Are You Doing Right Now
Day three dealing with Intuit who can't make QB work at all.
We just started using QuickBooks here for a class. The software looks kind of dated to me.
Literally abandoned in the 1990s according to insider sources. Its' ancient client/server design with some shared file DB that's just insane.
Yep, almost guaranteed to loose data at some point through no fault of anything but the program.
RE: Ubiquiti - Small office Router and WIFI
I went with the ER-4 and a Unifi AP-Lite. Works perfect, and I'll just have to maintain it.
However, did anyone see Ubiquiti's new release? https://store.ui.com/collections/routing-switching/products/unifi-dream-machine
Like all consumer stuff, who wants this crap in the middle of their living space?
I think the same way. This stuff should be hidden. I don't understand why companies think they should spend resources designing something "pretty."
Or mixing things together... the firewall and the AP.. generally, even at home they would not be in the same places.
I guarantee they'll sell a bunch of those things. Mostly because people will think an all-in-1 device will make things "easy".
RE: Incorporating Ransomware Protection into Backup Plan
@jim9500 30TB is about the max for a single LTO-8 tape. Don't let the bad old days (and probably consumer type cruddy tape drives) put you off of tape. It's more reliable than any other media when you need to transport it, and you will want something off-site to be protected from ransomware.
Lot's more detail others will go into before I can get back here and complete my thoughts I'm sure.
RE: PoE issues with Unifi switch
I don't deal much with shielded. They look kinda messy. Isn't the shielding supposed to be in the connector with the rest of the cable?
Nope. You connect ONE side of the shielding to ground. Managing them is a pain. Also, if shielding is required, just us fiber imo.
RE: Difficult co-worker
Without more experience or information it is difficult to draw an exact conclusion, but have you considered that he is on the autism spectrum? Some of the things that you're listing could be indicators of that. There are significant differences to how you will work with someone on the spectrum vs someone who just has control issues.
This sounds a lot like my co-worker, who I am pretty sure is on the spectrum. He is amazing technically, reading comprehension of technical documentation that is out of this world. But he can't think in terms of business needs and what is practical. He will also assume he knows what you're saying without listen so you really have to watch for cues that the didn't actually understand what you said. Also can be a lot of work to convince him he is wrong, you need to have definitive proof ready.
Or he will have no memory of where he got information from, so he will explain something to you that was actually something you told him
Now you have me wondering how many times I've done that to people. More than I want to know most likely.
