You can just organise them in Teams if you really want :lol: but it's easier using the SharePoint view. You can even open up in the SharePoint and then open in a file explorer view if that makes it more palatable!

My aversion to Sharepoint is largely just that the implementations I've been exposed to never seem to work properly.

The number of times I get error messages about being unable to check something in or out is insane. There are days when most of my time is spent fighting Sharepoint!

The errors always basically amount to saying: "Something went wrong LOL!" which doesn't help!

Slack is decent but I strawberry floating hate that "separate sign in for each workspace" thing.


Teams has a seperate signin for each workspace too.

Another thing I hate. Modern blue screens - this is a specifically terrible example from yesterday.

Received an email from Oral B for a free toothbrush head. Click the link within 4 minutes of receiving the message. Stock depleted. :|

Was it even worth employing someone to write and code the email?

You can also add Royal Mail to today’s annoyed list. Tried to check out and purchase postage for the past hour and it’s not having it. Just hangs on the spinning wheel of death.

More like Royal Fail amirite lolz.

I do wonder whether my shipment from Canada will ever arrive, i know overseas mail can be slow, but it's been 4 weeks now and i'm starting to get impatient.

That said, my christmas card to The Philippines took over 8 weeks, so there's still hope yet.

strawberry floating scalpers. I set up alerts for a few things on stock informer so discord would ping when they came into stock- a few graphics cards, Series Xs, PS5, etc. Not to buy all of them, mind you, just to see what became available first.

Just now, phone already in hand, the alert pinged for new PS5 stock on Amazon. In the three seconds from the ping to clicking add to basket, they were already gone. :x

The trouble is that there are so many links in the chain for these "stock notification" services that it's hard to know just how late you as an individual got the notification compared to anyone else.

The way they get the information from the sellers will introduce some lag, they might be receiving notifications directly from the seller which will have its own delay, they may be scraping the website on intervals which will also not be immediate. Then you have the way they process that information internally, update their own database, identify who is registered for alerts on that item, and generate and send out the alerts. You then still have to factor in the network environment that brings the notification to you individually as well as the device you receive it on, all of which can again introduce lag.

By the time you actually get the notification it can have been several minutes on from when the seller actually updated their stock status.

That's a good point, actually. Yesterday I had the Chrome notifications turned on for the 3070 as well as the discord ones, and the Chrome one came through a good 30 seconds before the discord one.

Basically, what Jenny is saying is, you need to employ someone to write a script that cuts out most of these links in the chain.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Just fantastic. What an off-the-cuff response!


Oh man. I just posted the above in the "smile" thread and was feeling pretty cheery... but then I made the mistake of glancing at some of the responses on Twitter. Instantly reminded that there are plenty of sexist morons out there :x .

She handled that brilliantly.

It's hilarious that the same people that think women can't be funny also think "what colour is your thong" is a great joke.

Yeah the actual video of her taking the idiot to task is gold, she deals with it exceptionally well.

But many of the comments on the tweet just reinforce the idea that there are a ludicrous number of morons out there!
