Maybe you should have used Akamai instead.

No, it was Acamai, the chinese clone of Akamai.

I'm happy to misspell their name.

my house phone clearly states on the voicemail that I will not listen to the messages, and it's best to call me or husband on our cell-phone.

My cell provider sends me my voicemail into my email inbox, so I don't have to waste the time retrieving the message. I think the outgoing message says to contact me by whatsapp or email.

If you're not going to listen to your voicemail, why not just shut it off?
That's what I did. The only downside is that if you don't pick up a call you have to listen to it ringing for a bit longer.

If you remove the voicemail then you lose the outgoing message.

That's the idea. It rings, and rings, and rings, and eventually they give up and find another way to get in touch with you.

I suppose you could also go with the other popular copout of deliberately leaving the mailbox full.

Yowza. Here's how you totally fail at LinkedIn:

I just received a message from them saying "Congratulate <name withheld> for starting a new position as Storage Professional at Open to opportunities"

How do you even answer that? "Oh hi! Congratulations on your unemployment!"

Trying to replace email with Spark, Teams, WebEx Teams, etc. is fucking stupid.

That is all.

Oh gods.. My head hurts from the amount of infrastructure things like that we're trying to do.. Maybe we should all get together and build our own. <GRIN>

I'd be happy to just have *one* conferencing tool. And it shouldn't be an external paid service if you already have something internal that works.

And I still think that both Spark and Teams are nothing more than dressed-up but inferior clones of IRC.

I use a lot of Slack and am fairly happy with it.

That's because you're a slacker. Duh.

These tools are fine for working together - a spread out group that is working a live issue - instead of everyone on a conference call.

I'm seeing people trying to use it as an email replacement - going as far if you email them telling you to search through Teams..... Blah.

And this is for you IG....

I'd be ok with any tool ... any ONE tool. We have Skype for Business (nee Lync), Cisco Jabber, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, and an internal conferencing bridge. All but one need to die.

Not too long ago, someone looked at our WebEx bill and declared "no more WebEx meetings except for people who absolutely need it, and even then, we're shutting off the WebEx audio bridge and forcing everyone to use our internal voice bridge". Why not just shut down the WebEx account completely? We have other tools.

From what I understand, you can connect to Slack using an IRC client. Teams should do the same thing.

verdammt consultants. Our head of devops can't document how to launch an EC2 instance into our Ansible cluster. "I assumed you'd done that before."

Whelp, I guess it's time for me to just go reverse-engineer shit and see what I can figure out. **switches virtualbox into full-sceen mode, for great power and focus**

...for great justice!

I guess the days are gone where if you were a techie worth your salt you had two or three computers on your desk at work. Maybe one was a terminal connected to some old big iron in the back room. And there was no stupid email either; if you wanted to get a message out to someone, an assistant would hang upside down from a trapeze near your desk and take a memo for you.
