    Sometime I wish something will happen like this due to one of so many BS those similar people do all the time but have been fixed by guys like me.
    Then, I think of our users, those who actually make money in the company... and I'm glad that it won't.

    I wish assholes were so smart to left proof of their (maybe-not volunteer) sabotaging...
    Here no one ever touched anything, even if it is blatantly tampered...

    You mean next time I have that kind of a problem, I should give a shout to the guys in a building across the street* and ask them to lend me their problem solver...?

    No, just no.
    You dont borrow tools. Get your own and hang it above your door.

    Unfortunately, most IT problems I have to deal with are root-cause by users. So I understand that it may be inappropriate to deal with them this way.

    It actually may be more beneficial ... if you keep it up you’ll see a drastic reduction in users. (Not to mention user-errors).

    Yeah... but it seems to also reduce my freedom exponentially.

    Sadly it seems science is still 5-10 years away from producing a working printer.

    Considering that in 10 years we may be close to a zero paper reality, I think we should not expect a working printer before 20 years.

    But... considering AI and robot curve of progress, we may have AI printers within a few years which will be able to refill paper by themselves, solving 99% of printing issue (once again a chair keyboard issue).

    Depending on my location, these could become minor concerns.

    It's just debugging, really, just a bit more involved

    Having worked with lawyers, I'd put that closer to 50.

    It's like law school includes a computer illiteracy course, modules include "Unplugging things without noticing", "Printing to printers in other continents", "Ensuring your keyboard is regularly topped up with coffee/champagne", and "How to save important documents to locations that aren't backed up".

    I've had the "What do you mean you emptied the Recycle Bin? I had important things there!" conversation too...

    Or from a number of other, possibly local, suppliers. I know.
    But i'm not sure our Finance Dept. would clear the expense...

    We're alooooooot farther away from a paperless world than you might think. I work at an advertising agency and printing physical things, by far, is still way more popular than web/online/banner advertisements

    I am so glad I develop for PowerBI and SSRS nowadays so users can't break anything

    Our all-new entirely-outsourced DB crew however... they have proven to be unreliable at the best of times and downright harmful most others

    Corporate got it in their head we have to change all of our reporting to a big data architecture. The people in charge of building the data lake, though, have no knowledge of the business and no intention to learn it. My manager was just in a heated argument with them because they are incapable of differentiating between "assessment" and "assignment" so they screwed up the entire upload for member services.

    And if that were not all, corporate also says we will be losing access to our normal DB by December and will be forced to use the abomination these muppets are slapping together. I'd love to see the look on their faces when things start literally blowing up.
