    I'm thinking the people who make the rules have a tendency to ignore the users actual requirements. If you're worried about that sort of thing, by all means, use the available addons, or at least give the user the option to go with it or not.

    Personally? I say "scruff you!!" <G>

    Oh, you mean like the message that recently went at work out after people started complaining about slow dowloads?

    To paraphrase, "Our bandwidth sucks, especially during normal working hours. If you need to download a large file come in early or stay late, it will be a little faster then."

    About a month ago I needed to download a 7GB ISO file of updates. The download estimate was essentially 1 day/24 hours. Brought my laptop home at lunch time, hooked up through VPN, got the file in about 15 minutes.

    Sorry your work place is not a good place to download things. Life must suck there.

    The unsecure? web address warning kicked in yesterday on explorer11..
    I turned the security settings to high and the warnings went away.

    Check what I quoted.


    Life, in general, is pretty good there. That, however, doesn't preclude me from grousing about something that needs improvement. But, considering your Admin position, I understand your "shut up and get back in line" attitude.

    Check a little higher and I am pretty sure its a response to the Internet Powers (Rule Makers) to be requiring SSL everywhere and how it makes Admin's life hell.

    I will let your Admin/Admins have that fun. But honestly its not a fun job at all and even less so with End Users venting and pointing out how much something else works better somewhere else as if all things are equal. (Not saying you are except here but even though)

    I get it. I deal with the same/similar thing every day, just on a different aspect of the Business.

    I'm afforded few excuses so I'm pretty sure that is why I'm not so tolerant of them in other aspects.

    I miss the good old days when you had to be somewhat SMART to access the internet
    and we didn't have every 12 year old or semi-alcoholic troll making ignorant comments in adult conversations ...
    I blame the ingress on AOL, for starters!

    Nothing like a good bit of sanctimony to help things along. :)

    March Madness always seems to have a detrimental effect on bandwidth in the workplace ... wouldn't be so bad if everyone was rooting for the same team and streaming the same game, right?<G>

    "People using modern browsers will eventually be locked out of signing on at this rate."

    That's what I was afraid of. The future is now.
