I have two shopping styles, one when I go to the close Supermarket, a place I don't like, were I shop at the speed of "I need to use the toilet soon" and the other when I go to the supermarket I like , but that is freaking far away, were I take a long time looking to see if there is something in discount I may want because is really far away and I don't go there a lot

BOFH: You'll find there's a company asset tag right here, underneath the monstrously heavy arcade machine
I am quite sure about a third of the readers would have fixed the Arcade machine or at least replaced it by a M.A.M.E cabinet, only it still takes money. Those lunch breaks are so long... and why play a freemium game full of ads in your phone when you can waste ten dollars for 15 minutes playing an Arcade game? After all we have to find a way for people to go back to the office... and it takes less space that a pool table!
Even better, make the thing a Coffee maker too. Play Tetris and get an expresso for the same price!

So... Chinese kids will just do a lot of offline gaming instead?
Don't get me wrong, online gaming can be quite toxic but as someone who got hours of fun everyday from Animal Crossing on the DS for over a year, I can tell you that a game doesn't need to be online to make you expend a lot of time on it.

[It's the only way I can explain the rise, fall, rise, fall and rise again of handheld gaming consoles]
Nintendo never ever had a fall with them.
Since the Game & Watch to the Switch and Switch Lite; they have been making a lot of money out of them. Sure sometimes their sales slowed but then something, be it Pokemon for the original Gameboy, a price drop for the 3DS, make them rise like the Phoenix and make a lot of money.
In fact handheld gaming consoles is the one thing that Nintendo always good at and keeps giving them money.
The losers are the companies not named Nintendo.

Apple: We care about your privacy that's why we made Facebook and all those people whose revenue depends on tracking you angry.
Apple: We will scan your photos, but is to look for banned content like people that abuse children. Do not worry, there is absolutely no way your photos that do not have anything that's banned content will be leaked and used against you.

We can't believe people use browsers to manage their passwords, says maker of password management tools
Since the first time malware has been able to infect machines needed to keep a person alive or that help during an operation the risk has been there. There is no need for robots to kill people with malware, simply making a machine not function correctly is enough.
While hospitals do their best to never say when a death was caused by malware or a computer virus simply look at how many times people has died due to a machine not working correctly.
Also Amazon new MMO beta is literally killing video cards, can we call it malware?

I lost all my respect for the BOFH, getting into mining now? What he was doing a decade ago? Running a Counter Strike server?
Also as mining doesn't even pay the power costs, he could get way more money getting into the Video Card black market. Just replace all the office video cards for cheaper ones, hack the bios so no one notices and blame the performance drop on the latest Window update.
Or if the Video Card prices go down for some reason, just put a request for budget update with the excuse that Windows 11 won't run on their computers.
If you do double time it counts as double the years, right?
You can have twelve year experience by only doing six years if you do double shift because in practice you did work the same amount of time that someone doing twelve years but put half the time, right?
That sounds like something the BOFH would say...
