It’s remarkable how clever a lot of tech support professionals think they are when faced with perfectly ordinary people with at least average intelligence that they are unable to utilise to troubleshoot something as simple as an unplugged device.
It’s a classic workman blaming tools situation and the inability of some folks to hear what they’re saying (and have the empathy to understand the message it’s putting across) is amazing
It’s no different to how it was before - money laundering through mules of differing degrees of awareness.
There are sites I’m aware of where you can participate in this under the guise of exchanging other assets, and I’m not a criminal and have no interest in either Bitcoin or money laundering so safe to say there are no shortage of sites for exchanging illicit bitcoins for real world assets with the expected level of loss of value
At the very least sophisticated level, that one PC has access to multitudinous servers and file stores - else what’s the point of the PC.
But often it’s used as a stepping off point and either something worm like or even an actual human will go from
boxen to boxen, installing the utility of nastiness and then pulling the trigger when ready and encrypting everything
Precisely this, and the ‘sacrifice’ of going without the odd bit of content (roulette wheel that whole side of this anyway, there one week gone the next as is true for Netflix) is in my view well worth it for making a moral stand and giving business to alternatives and supporting jobs with those instead
Nice try but you know perfectly well that there are a more significant number of localised TLDs that you can’t have, unless you operate or reside in that geography
Italy certainly used to be one, so don’t pretend it’s unreasonable for .eu to be reserved for the eu countries
No I think you are exactly wrong - so for example I drive around 35k miles/year as does almost everyone else in a similar job. I do 300 mile round trips every week.
How many of those are there? Judging by the roads, lots. Lots and lots, and the combined total is of significance
It just isn’t as straight as that though - so say you I hit your monthly spend cap on day 5 of the month - what happens to your data, VMs then? They have a cost associated with storage them so the only option then is to delete them immediately?
Even if your budget / quota is sophisticated enough to allow you to earmark some for that storage, generated user data etc still grows and has an ongoing cost requirement once the quota is reached
“ They price the fares so high to try and prevent other travellers from booking them. Such as foreign nationals who aren't in such great need for the flight, maybe booking a last minute long weekend to London for example.”
Are there a lot of people casually booking weekends away from (and therefore immediately back to) an area impacted by hurricanes?
And if you’re honestly of the belief that the relational is to prevent use of the capacity by customers leaving the area for the ‘wrong’ reason the I have a bridge to sell you!
So, this is a bigger question really than belongs in a forum post but in terms of actual applicability in real life, in the experience of the masses what’s the minimum vintage to aim at if you assume these things are necessary:
Chrome/Firefox run like not a dog
Support for audio, HD playback and Webcam
Zoom, Teams, Skype
That’s really it I think, add on not-terrible printer support but that’s likely not affected by the hardware only the distribution it’s capable of running.
What’s the lowest cost solution do we all think?
