Despite the humidity here, I really do enjoy Boston. Granted I get confused on where the hell I'm going since there are very little street signs on the corners but the overall city is very nice (has to be, tourist trap). Love hearing the various Europeans conversing between each other, makes me melt Subway isn't all that scary like I thought it would be either :lol: Only had 3 creepy situations so far.
1) Walking to the local subway station, I pass a guy waiting for a bus and when I'm maybe 2 feet from him he said "You're beautiful", looks me up and down, spins on his heel to watch me walk away as fast as I could without making it obvious lol.
2) Ate at a Burger King by the Boston Library and I swear this woman had narcolepsy! She had bought a sundae drink type of thing (I don't go to BK enough to know what it is), she ate some then dozed off. Woke back up, ate some more, dozed back off.
3) Walking back to my hotel there was a guy in a Matrix who was turning on to the same street as I was walking on (headed to the intersection then to subway station again) and driving super slow! Can't tell if he was waiting for me to get past the driveway to the hotel or what. Turns out he was watching me walk because when he finally passed me, he sped off :lol:
Other than that, I like it here. Not sure if I could handle the winter with me being spoiled during California's "winter" of ~70 degrees in the day to maaaybe ~50 degrees at night. :lol:
I can't believe how fast this thread has added pages. I've been out for 4 days at QuakeCon and other than a single post, I haven't been in and it has added 10 pages.
And they're not on the company's back-up tapes either?ALSO NEVER EVER TRUST SOMEONE WHO SAYS THEY'RE 'REORGANISING' A NETWORK SHARE...
I have lost several diagrams that I didn't have a backup for (for security reasons usb's etc aren't permitted)
Use irssi. White letters in a black terminal look work related from a distanceI'm not on for a lot of the because I have to at least look like I"m doing some work

(And allowing USB sticks is a big security hole unless it's done right, so lots of people choose to just disallow them)

Most of the time, company laptops don't actually contain sensitive data. Or at least, if their policies are set up right, they wouldn't; all actual data would be on the company intranet.Sometimes I don't understand though, why do some companies allow their employees to take their laptops home, but not bring their USBs to work?
