Ice over snow

I'm really beginning to miss those summer days of 100+ heat here in Texas...

We got a new Hard Copy guy at work...

We got a new Hard Copy guy at work.
He likes binders. He likes notebooks. He likes saving finished forms that the company has invested lots of money for an Oracle database to keep track of, and he's really concerned about things that will take care of themselves. It's odd.
I'm betting he hasn't seen all of the stamps that we've got, but I'll bring it up next time I see him.
I'm also thinking about leaving a few fake forms laying around to see if he starts filling them out...

Giving the HP Stream a try

Fun experiment and true story!
Picked-up a $220.00 HP Stream 13 laptop so I could install the Windows 10 Technical Preview without having to screw-up my perfectly good ChrunchBang Linux install on my 4-year-old Toshiba laptop, which I think could out-perform anything I have on the shelf at work.
Even running everybody's least favorite operating system, Windows 8, it's still a good machine.
I set-up the free year of Office 365, and got the included 1TB of storage space on OneDrive.
Am I going to keep running Windows on it?
Of course not, but it works well enough as a test unit...
Notice the lack of pointless crap.

...because if you think I'm using IE, you're simply insane!

One year free Office 365, and next year I laugh, and laugh.
