Yep! Currently one is my phone, one is an extra charger, one is sitting in my car waiting for me to find a way to make it a dashcam, and one is the remote control for my TV and DVR.

I can't believe you are still using one as a phone.

The keyboard on mine eventually went wonky, obviating the whole reason why I have it. Lots of keys don't work reliably, and then double-type when you finally get them to work.

Fuck, I don't remember. That probably explains why I got it wrong. It was likely arg usage with some UNIX command.

Yes, SOP when any of my hosts have a disk space issue.

Very high compression level. Frees up a lot of space.

Haven't used Unix in forever...the only command I can recall is "su." Not sure why that one stuck.

That's funny because I barely use su. SOP at my job is always use sudo if you need to be root. And if you *really* need to be root for a whole bunch of commands in a row, just do 'sudo su' so you don't have to know the root password. Technically we do have access to the actual root password, but we don't have to use it that often.

That sounds sort of loosey-goosey. We couldn't pass an audit here with something like that going on.

Any of you guys use SAP? I enjoyed working with that...thought it was pretty intuitive despite how techy it was.

We pass a SOX audit every year, but just as a merchant. I imagine the audit that happens at a PROVIDER of credit cards is way more complicated. I do not envy you in that regard.

Anyone got recommendation on chair? Don't want to spend a ton, but you know, I sit in it a lot. Was thinking about one of the mesh ones, top and or bottom.

I bought a desk/office chair recently. May not be of much use as the retailer (Viking) probably isn't stateside, but when researching, there were lots of U.S. Web sites where users posted their favrids.
I think places like Engadget/Lifehacker etc. Might be worth a Goog.
