Fuck this client's IT department. They're a bunch of Microsoft asslickers.

How am I supposed to push code to your self-hosted GitLab instance if you restrict me to Citrix RDP????? No OpenVPN access because I'm on Linux?? Seriously? Because I am not using any of your laptops?

FUCK YOU DUMBASSES, I COULD DO A BETTER JOB THAN YOU AND I JUST PLAY WITH LINUX.

When I said I only needed terminal access I would have never imagined they were thinking of Putty inside an RDP. What a steaming shit.

Oh you guys don't have a secret management service as any enterprise should? Oh I cannot add a secret management service as part of the solution I am building for you guys because "Hurr Durr yOu HaVe NoT pUt ThIs In ThE pRoJeCt PrOpOsAl sO nO"

Fuck you guys. You guys only don't want to move to the cloud to not lose your jobs. I would be far more productive than relying on you pieces of dumbassery.

They are all having each others back in using shit technology and practices.

    To be fair, not using any of their laptops should not even allow you to enter their network AT ALL. And then they will probably want to tick their "security compliance checkboxes" so that only approved shit is allowed. Basic CYA of the IT department.

    And obviously, they want to self-host because moving that to the cloud is just dumb, especially for non-US companies: all US companies have NSA gag orders, and one of the NSA's tasks is industrial espionage.

    @Fast-Nop fair points, appreciate it. But the access they gave me still makes it a pain the ass to roll simple updates.
