Today in Russia puppet state fails: Belarus had a homegrown globally-successful videogame company, Wargaming. It left over Belarus's support for the invasion of Ukraine.

We have one client which we manage an Azure tenant for. They require, and have specified, a zero-tolerance for device non-compliance.

In roughly two hours, 1647 devices are about to be locked out of access to organisation resources, wiped, and removed from Intune permanently.

4 meetings, 124 emails, and two phone calls a day for the last 14 days have warned them of this.

Death by middle-management.

Like the theories about intentionally destroying ice asteroids in Mars' atmosphere for terraforming.

I feel like "aero-braking" has the connotation of wanting to keep the object in one piece.

Is there a term for intentional aero-disintegration?

Ta-dah! Felted planets, as seen in visible light, designed and entirely handmade by me. Do you like? #science #crafts #hobbies #felting #space

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Those who do learn from history are doomed to watch it repeated by those who didn’t.

1.) Tech companies post record profits.
2.) Tech companies lay off tens of thousands of employees.
3.) Wait, where'd those pitchforks come from?

I don't get why haggis has such a worse reputation than regular sausage.

I want a law to say that any elected official who tries to ban the beloved Robin Williams movie Ms. Doubtfire is immediately ejected from office and banned from holding future office.
