Never know, Fleebs, spinoffs seem to be all the rage these days. Of course, so are fidget spinners, but....
Maybe, but it's not as interesting as doing something fresh and new that nobody has seen before.
Too true. Too bad we can't just "spin off" under performers, though (esp not at my giant behemouth).... "You are...the weakest link. Goodbye!"
We use OpenVPN, which I *think* is two factor authentication... I know it has certificates, and that I can change my password (which is stored elsewhere, not in the certificate).
Do these guys want me to provide a solution, or want me to talk about providing a solution?
Because it'll take me less time to provide the solution than to discuss it.
Well then, the answer is clearly the latter. Otherwise, what else would they do with their time?

Just out of curiousity fleeb. What are you using for VPN these days.
We're doing two factor authentication these days and occasionally i sit
here wondering what they did to screw up the VPN and in reality I just
need to tell my phone to tell the VPN that it's really me and I should
stop sitting there waiting for it to happen.
Your problem is that the VPN--the other one that works nicer--is also a figment of your imagination.

Let's discuss if we want him to provide a solution or discuss him providing a solution, we are a bureaucracy after all.
This will be discussed at the pre-meeting meeting. Please bring your special set of glasses that allow you to view the hidden agenda.

I am hear to discuss Air Supply lyrics and chew bubble gum, and I am all out of love, I'm so lost without you.

It really is impressive how much people will discuss something when they maintain an emotional investment in the waterfall method, rather than fucking doing it and tweaking it as you go along so the customer will like it, like pretty much the rest of the world does it.
If I were truly lazy, I could probably troll these guys for months on this application and never actually put in any work on it. Just endlessly discuss it, pulling in the guy who wants it occasionally who will tell us the same thing he said before, which will get lost in the noise of our own echo chamber of mediocrity. It'd drive that guy nuts, but I could probably sneak a GoPro in and turn the whole thing into a documentary on what it takes to wear down a corporate employee's will to live.

I vote for this. If you want a second opportunity, you could come to my unit.....
Who the fuck hired a COO who's nearly an aspie in terms of social cluelessness?
I thought that was a requirement for such positions.
* Work gets assigned and ticketed to me (not supposed to happen anymore as I'm not a production support person)
* A manager sees what happened and reassigns the ticket to a production support person
* Production support guy sends me an email saying, and I quote: "[manager] assigned me to a ticket that had been in your queue for [description of work].
Can you get them squared away so I can close the ticket?"
Evidently we're hiring some real winners. Fine with me ... it makes it so much easier for me to look like a rockstar compared to them.
That's quite a system there.
Hire people to close out your tickets so you can focus entirely on the work instead of the paperwork.
Graphics... coding graphics.
You can't make cogent score sheets without graphics.
