When filters are Evil

Posted 8th July 2009 at 01:10 AM by Ashlann (Ashlann's Basket)

I work for a rather prominent Australian business largely involved in the medical field. They have very strict guidelines about internet usage, and endless 'Standard Operating Procedures' that outline these rules. IE is the browser supplied to us on all PCs, and very aggressive filters monitor our activities.

However, about 2 years ago I did something rather clever. No executable can be run without sysadmin rights. Somehow they overlooked applying this rule to our 'My Documents' folder...

I've been dealing, I've been coping...until today. Today I didn't cope and, because of that I spoke to my daughter in a way that I am ashamed of. So I'm putting this here so that some of that frustration can be vented. I don't have RL friends to 'have coffee with'. I know people don't believe me but it's true. The one person I considered a friend told me 'I don't have room in my life to deal with this' when I told her I have Lupus and I haven't heard from her since.

Lupus. Systemic...

Retro Console Collecting - Part XII (Schizo Resurrects a Console From the Dead)

Posted 12th October 2013 at 10:25 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Welcome back for yet another installation of Retro Console Collecting - the blog that promises updates, and never delivers!

In my defense, I'll contend that I'm faster at posting blogs than Congress is at passing a budget! Oh hey, did I just make a political joke? I must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

HEADSETS - What a load of crap!

There is no point in putting it any other way, especially when talking about the sales pitch of the decade ... The "Gaming" Headset ... not sure if that is the...

A gamer and his headset - PART 2

Posted 6th February 2015 at 01:30 PM by delushin

So where was I? Ah yea the good old Astro A50s and the interactive customer support over a known built by design interference issue, that is not an issue - remember just turn it up!

It turns out that all of the wireless and battery and connectors and wires and transistors and capacitors mostly reside in the right ear cup. Then there is some noise gate kick in that adds to the buzz which can be amplified...
