Just got an email from her... she's managed to "delete everything", and she's freaking out. I logged into her Gmail, and it's empty. No archive or anything. WTF, GG.

If its a google apps account you have the option to restore from backup.

If its a regular gmail account - you can try saying that it was compromised and ask them nicely to restore it.

Definitely all gone bar a couple of inbox and draft items. I'll never know what really happened - maybe she accidentally archived everything in trash. The IMAP configuration gave her a whole new set of folders in Thunderbird, so yeah, parents.

I sent a sob story to Gmail support. In any case, she'll live and learn.

Classic setup really. My week off visiting family becomes the tech support world tour, followed by the "WHAT DID YOU DO" blowback the week after.

So on arriving back to the old man's after my week away, with a fresh Windows install and the place (read: the fibre) to myself, I installed a bunch of games including GTA V. Didn't check the quota. Posting from 256k, and holy fuck does that not even slightly work on the modern web.

You're the retard now, dog.

Pay review meeting in an hour. Boss just emailed and basically spelled out all the reasons I'll get nothing - but hey, feel free to come in and talk about it anyway!

Oh, I will. Hold my beer.

Fuck employees / blowjobs for shareholders.

It went pretty well. No deal done yet, but I think he's on board. I don't think I'll get the 30% I asked for (lol) but you gotta aim high.

Sounds like its quitting time if there are better options available.

ed: or not. Nice work.



Quit my previous job after no pay rise in 18 months and doing a shit tonne of work and being told I wasn't working hard enough. Experienced a sizeable amount of schadenfreude when, after shifting someone else into the role and still needing to hire 2 new employees to cover the workload, the team manager and another guy on the same team got fed up and quit about 2 months later.

Voted.

I recently talked to my boss about my pay. He said my wage reflects the value I am to the company. I’m about $1.40 off from being on minimum hourly wage, so I’m currently looking for a new job.

Oh fuck me I throttled myself again after buying a data block. Neglected to put Steam in offline mode, paused the Dirt Rally patch, played Arma, Arma unpaused the queue automatically to update a mod, and then continued to update Dirt Rally.

Steam would be hellish for anyone who literally has to watch their quota all the time. Anyway fuck you I'm going to bed.

It's stupid steam still doesn't have a blanket disable auto game updates option. You have to do it individually for each game.
It does have a schedule limiter for updates tho

ended up putting the freebie in hubs phone only to have the new replacement sim arrive the next day lol

anyone got any idea how to find or reset the restrictions code on iphone5s? hub must have accidently turned it on old phone and then when we put his gear onto new phone it did restrictions passcode too. so still.. no app store.

Changes to OneDrive

We want to let you know about some upcoming changes to OneDrive. On 13/07/2016, the amount of storage that comes with OneDrive will change from 15 GB to 5 GB. We are also discontinuing the 15 GB camera roll bonus. You can learn more by taking a look at our FAQs.

There is no action you need to take, because your OneDrive account is currently below the new storage limits. Even though you aren't currently affected, we want to keep you updated on all important changes to OneDrive. If you'd like to check your account, you can visit the Storage page.

We realise these are big changes to a service you rely on. We want to apologise for any inconvenience that they may cause you. We've made a difficult decision, but it's one that will let us sustainably operate OneDrive into the future.

Thank you for using OneDrive.

– The OneDrive Team

I don't use your shitty cloud service. You force it on everything. I've even used 133t h4x to remove it completely from my windows.
How can I possibly rely on something I don't use?
