Re: Vertical space rules
I've been running three "42's for the last few years.
Don't give me width without giving me height.
Might be moving up to "44's soon but see no need to yet.

Yeah, that's us as well, for contractors and students.
As a key position here I'm in a secure room with two huge cubes on opposite sides of a small corridor.
They tried to get me to move to the main bldg once when the Managers changed and I threatened to quit.
Not one to be argued with he was let into my area, saw the twelve plus oversized monitors, towers and server racks all neatly setup around me and it dawned on him that he had no idea what I do here. He then realized plans don't always match RL.
They should have the Darwin Awards for Security and Privacy....
These *&^* think we're all going to cluster in SkyNe....er....Azure willingly.
Not everyone is foolish enough to hand over all of their data on a say so of confidentiality.
Don't even get me started on that TimeLine feature they're working on.....
Stuck with IE because of our environment (in house apps etc) on WIN7/10.
Personally still using Opera (and Fox) since it's the only one that does speed-dial well, and the third party addons to block are plentiful and work well. Otherwise I set my clients to Firefox or Chromium (linux).
Friends don't let friends install Chrome, not even once.
31 years experience says so.
No just effing No.
I have a high level management wanting Tablets replacing Laptops while I go around like a madman restoring Towers to workers ready to jump out of windows. This is madness. Between the chatters from the network from update checks, anti virus, security monitoring etc, the laptops use up most of their 8 gigs after one or tow doc opens, then using a record management app to save and import and voila, freeze when importing cells from one 40 meg excel to another. Stop the madness, talk to your IM Managers, Laptops, tabs and phones are for suckers not workers. Only Desktops (or very expensive gaming laptops) can keep your multi-file juggling workers productive!
