Good essay from the original Cranky Geek about starting to work from home.
John C. Dvorak, 2.5 pages.
@mwklein been working mostly at home since I moved to New York City about 6 years ago. I have an Iphone provided by work but most people don't -- leftover from before I got poached away from the IT department, and no one demanded I return it.
If I used the company phone system, it's a shitty app that only works if I'm connected to the VPN. If I'm not connected to the VPN, my host OS can't open two-way connections to local VMs running in VirtualBox. I told them to cancel my company phone number.
@mwklein my job has turned into a shithole in the past 4 years and in particular the last 1 year. I didn't submit my self-evaluation on time and I'm not sure what I'm going to write on it.
