    I knew a guy who would watch movies while he worked on code. He had VLC player open on his second monitor, in an open office layout so everyone could see. He was very senior engineer, clearly didn’t GAF what people think

    As long as people know you get shit done, it definitely shouldn’t be a problem

      People think guest wifi is augmented different ly. But we still have full insight into what's going over the wire. It's no different if your employee or on secured wifi.

      Full insights?
      You are decoding TLS on the fly for all connections by somehow stealing private certs?

    • Ok, it doesn’t matter in this case bc it’s not Corp and can be used for this type of activity?

      Federally mandated two paid 15 minute breaks and 1 hour unpaid lunch per 8 hour shift. #knowyourrights

    i imagine this is something that varies from one company to the next... the devices we’re issued are for work and personal use within reason. within reason being, netflix, hulu, checking personal email, using garageband to make your podcast, etc. they’re definitely being managed so nothing crazy.

    all that said, it shows that you’re at oracle so there must be a policy about this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Out of curiosity if you make your podcast using your work laptop, is it owned by MailChimp?

      ooh good question! i don’t have a podcast, but a few people do - i don’t think MC owns it.

    Pretty safe. That's what I have to resort to after a bean counter took away my cable connection.

      They don't pay you enough to pay your bills at MS?

      I expect the cable connection in my office to be covered as a corporate expense 😁

    Worked at a SVOD company for a while. It was pretty much standard to have video up on a monitor...you know, to make sure the product was working 😏

    Colleague does it all the time while doing work but she’s a top performer and info resource.

    Nobody questions her about it (except “What’s that show?!”).
