It depends on how many lads are hiding behind it at the time


#642

Yea.
Users generally seem to prefer it too.


#643

A very prudent thing if your workplace handles confidential or legally sensitive matters. Things don’t get left on a printing tray when you have to go over to the printer to release a job. Reduces frivolous printing too.


#644

The only way to go. Fob card activated is the handiest method.


#645

A lot of printing is outsourced nowadays, the company pays by the page count and don’t have to invest in the printer hardware or support it. Making each user login to print allows printing to be charged back to each department.


#646

Big legal firms require a client number be entered before print jobs are released, so each page can be accounted for through outlay billing.


#647

Sure the cunts would probably charge the client for having to walk to the printer.


#648

It’s all about the billables. They’d charge for the lad standing at the photocopier


#649

Don’t speak ill of @Brimmer_Bradley


#650

Getting a bit ahead of yourself kp. We don’t even have fob/swipe card access to the building


#651

Tis many a happy hour I spend loitering around the printer, sure tis a form of networking and keeping tuned in to staff and colleagues.


#652

You are a printer King!


#653

God no, the tech I work with is far more sophisticated.


#654

Lads, what’s the best andriod app for office365 email? The outlook app is the worst I’ve ever seen. Recent convert to android phone and this is killing me slowly but surely.


#655

I don’t mind the Outlook app myself.

Check the small print pal…

I think they mention about not giving sick leave and that you need to use your annual leave if needed.

The potential salary is attractive though, well paid roles.


#658

The fact I know fuck all about Linux admin / scripting would appear to be a stumbling block.


#659

They’d want to double my public sector salary for me to do a day’s work for the yanks. An auld friend of KP’s would be interested though…


#660

Who?

Can you create a ‘role’ for me in that place Amby. Director of QA or something would be nice.
