Are the posted questions getting worse?

    Regarding the accidental DBA, has no one seriously running into the anti-virus scanning issue? The more he posts, the more I'm convinced one of his servers is scanning the db files. Yet no one, not even him, has responded to my post on the issue.

    Unless my post really didn't show up on that thread, but then if not, why am I suddenly subscribed to the chain?

    I did see your post, haven't had time to respond yet, tend to treat antivirus with other running processes on the servers πŸ˜‰

    It is hard to put down in words, and in a way, hard to get to the grips of it five years on, RIP Dwain, you will always be missed!

  • Found out the other week, we're likely to be working from home to the end of June 2021...

    So I splurged and bought myself a new, more adjustable desk chair than my existing chair.Β  Been using the new chair now for a week and a bit, and I'm happy with the splurge (Hey, a nearly $900 desk chair is a SPLURGE)

    Other than that, I'm REALLY starting to miss face-to-face human interaction, the cats just don't fill in that gap and the wife doesn't count...

  • Wow, I love my $350 Secret Lab one. Not sure I'd have spent that much, but hope it's a great chair.

    I completely miss human interaction and sitting somewhere out side my house or car for a meal.

     

  • I guess I'm an odd ol' duck.Β  I don't need or even want F2F interaction with humans unless it's on a pool table in my favorite bar and that's not going to happen for a while.Β  I'm "Lovin' the lockdown" and I wish some of the folks both at work and in private would realize that some of us don't actually like the "reindeer games" nor the "motherly advice" they insist on engaging us in to the point of being nauseating and seriously unwanted.

    Like the T-Shirt says, "Old men aren't hard of hearing... we're tired of listening". πŸ˜€

    Now, if I could just get my neighbor to take down the devil's annoyance known as wind chimes.

    I suspect we'll be at home until that sort of time too.Β  When things eased a little here (read the tip re-opened) we cleared out the back room and got a couple of tables for me to work on and Mrs B. to set up her sewing machines.Β  I haven't really got room in here for an office chair but it's not too bad on a kitchen chair.Β  Yes, I miss a bit of human interaction but I don't miss the two hour round trip to work and back.Β  It's not even that far as the crow flies, just a pig to get to from where I am.

    I am loving converting petrol money into basses though.Β  It may go some way to explaining why there's not enough room for an office chair; or funds come to that.

    How to post a question to get the most help http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Best+Practices/61537

  • Allstate made the decision months ago that we're WFH until the end of July. Because they were already moving in the direction of "all IT people should work from home to save office space for everyone else" they're thinking of making the decision permanent for us. And possibly more.

    Initiall, it was just a incremental move. Then pandemic and they're doing it whole hog.

    I'm with you, Jeff. I've missed very little about the office since last March. Having two monitors is one of them, which I am about to rectify.

    Sometimes, problems and ideas can be resolved best over a Teams chat, and that works and is sufficient for me.

    I sympathise with new starters and junior members of staff though, it must be very difficult for them.

    I have a superb pair of active noise cancelling headphones, for those pneumatic-drill-outside-the-window sessions.

    If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.
    See https://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/forum-etiquette-how-to-post-datacode-on-a-forum-to-get-the-best-help/ for details of how to post T-SQL code-related questions.

  • We've been using Teams for a lot of communication, but sometimes it's nice to get up and walk over to someones' desk, or turn the chair to chat with them.

    One of the things I'll miss back in the office (someday, maybe) will be access to my personal PC and homelab setup, though.

    Can you hook the headphones up with the amp so you can trickle the guitar whilst in an online meeting?

    That's why we have VPNs, Tunnels, Hidden under the desk routers, MiFi's, Mobile Hotspots, [name the protocol] over http/https etc.

    Yeah...

    Locked down office network (and PCs) I'd have to bring in my personal laptop to do this and that would likely have questions be asked (followed by a "don't bring it back in here")
