You'd like to think that, but somehow I've (with no qualifications etc, but just happened to grow up at the right time and annoy my parents enough by breaking and fixing our home computers, learnt enough to know what I'm doing) become our companies IT guy in the office when our outsourced guy can't get in (or can't be bothered to deal with half of it)
So I suggested at the very start of this all to use split tunnelling for everyone, this was immediately rebuffed and told it would be fine... we managed to the 2nd day before management got fed up of the stupid video meetings being laggy as hell, now we have split tunnelling.
I still can't fathom why they said no, I can only imagine it's because they would need to see every laptop, which is only around 40, and just didn't fancy doing it.
My child is 7, I feel that a term, or maybe two will be fine for him to "miss", he will still do work at home, but no where near the level the school is pumping it out at.
I know we're asked to stay in, but we're also encouraged to be out exercising, so in our once a day opportunity to leave the house, we'll most likely do some "exploring" of the local woods and countryside, he will learn a lot of things that can't be taught in the classroom, which I feel can only be a good thing.
Unfortunately I don't know what the end result will be, I can only do what I think is best for our mental and physical health at this time, being stressed out about work, school and caring all at the same time can't be good.
unfortunately you’ve not taken in to account how cheap people are.
I work with people who can quite easily afford a data plan to never need WiFi (excluding things like Netflix) but they have said they don’t see the point in buying it when there is so many free WiFi spots around, despite showing them articles and being that boring guy who always bangs on about privacy and security. I imagine they also use TalkTalk.
Are you kidding?
Usually if you run a red light you face 20 years inside, because the red light was in one county, and as you went through you ended up in another, thus making it federal.
They also seem to think that’s reasonable!
Whereas, the UK, caught 5 times with an illegal knife, stabs someone on the 6th. Gets a suspended 2yr sentence and a £15 victim surcharge. All other costs are picked up by us as they’ve never worked a day in their life.
I wonder if this will allow people to have sub par apps that slurp details without being vetted by Apple.
A bit like google does, not saying Apple are amazing, but in my opinion there does seem to be a big difference in the amount of apps that scam. Google is certainly winning that race.
