I didn't follow it but my wife felt the need to give me daily updates. It seemed like a slow moving train wreck.

I wasn't interested either, nor have I heard anything about it. This turd story sounds like I missed out on some good stuff.

You seem to have misspelled "Amber Turd"

I'll remember that for next time.

Poor baby was forced to sell one of her houses. That's $1M down, just another $8M to go to finish paying off the sueball.

On a conference call today I was chastised by a self-important middle manager for "speaking out of turn."

Considering that my only involvement here is as an SME, I don't work for them, and I'm only there because I have skills they don't and they'll totally fail without my help ... I was immediately reminded of Harvey Keitel as Winston Wolf in "Pulp Fiction" (1994).

I got onto a chat with the implementation lead for that department (who is friendly) and I told him that this guy has placed himself on my shit list.
"I'm here to help. If my help is not appreciated then good luck, gentlemen."

I guess I now need a tuxedo and a moustache. I already have a love for coffee.

i get that all the time.   Other managers think they know more about a subject than i, when i live it, they just work on ways to try to avoid it.

That doesn't sound enforceable.

Here soon every exe will be monitored, as well as file access.  Admin rights are going away, and to run an unapproved exe you have to use a new tool to log the request to execute, which sends a report to security team. that is IF you are even authorized .. else it just reports you in violation )

It wont be too hard to enforce. "you come thru us next time, or you wont be working here any more"
