So, I have been offered two jobs at the same company (big, global corp)
1. RPA coordinator or operator or business analyst. Completely new to me, they're happy with my background enough so that I could learn on the job. RPA is new in this place and they're creating team from scratch.
2. Member of IT security team where most of my work would be split between things that interest me greatly - vulnerabilities, fixing them and pen testing.
I'm not sure what to pick, really.
Option 1 seems to be way more future proof and seems like a lifetime opportunity to get into something relatively new, potentially more ££ down the road.
Option 2 is what I already spent some time learning and I have quite a big interest in. I've always been less of a programmer and more of an admin/sec guy.
Tbh before option 1 called me yesterday I thought that option 2 is a dream job for me. Now I'm all in doubt.12
I have heard that StarTech's customer service is on point... But this is something refreshing and a very surprising beginning of my birthday!1
For once they used their brains.
For once they thought about repercussions of clicking on inconspicuous links in emails.
And naturally it happened when I sent out a legitimate email to stop their shopping sprees.
But then again, I would rather have paranoid users than clicky-go-lucky.3
Good input field design. Every time I press enter it sent the message. From subsequent tries, ctrl+enter, shift+enter did not work.
ps. don't use parcelforce to courier your PC...
The usual... press F to pay respects.2
Fuck people that do not show up on Mondays because"they're sick".
Thanks for extra workload of two more people on top of my already two-man job.7
Typical insurance company BS approach.
Listening to xmas music, Spotify ad kicks in about 'just being "hacked"':
Buy our cyber security insurance product to quickly recover and retain liquidity in case of a cyber security beach.
Not a single word about preventing the incidents in the first place...
Lucky to work in a place that doesn't skimp on IT.5
So let's get this right: How do you pronounce Linux.
Linnucks or Lineaxe
Was talking to someone today and his 'lineaxe' threw me a lot.26
so um... several of my users access file explorer ONLY via Word.
Well, open Word: File->Open->Computer->Browse (nb. thank you Word 2013 and onwards for making life miserable) and voila, access to documents, downloads, and server shares is gained.
Users... they will always find a way8
just found out that one of my users replies to himself with blank email with a subject "checked" every time he checks his emails... and then he ticks it as "completed"... He has created chains with hundreds of replies long crashing his brand new xps15 every time he clicks on the chain...2
