  • Re: Best place to store business critical documents? Try Outlook deleted items!

    [quote user="FrostCat"]I think the only way you can really stop this is by capping people's mailbox size.  Then again, that's a horrible thing to do in this day and age.[/quote] As the person that administers our company's Exchange server, I can tell you this makes things much worse and me crazy. We have an old server ...

  • Re: GitHub is fucking broken fucking again

    I find it amazing the amount of Windows software programmers that have no idea how Windows actually works. I'm an IT person at a company that employs a handful of programmers and I have programming experience so I have occasionally helped out with some of their projects.
