Switching to Teams has sucked big time.

People just call instead of IM or email and I don't have a headset, so we're talking through my ####ty laptop that I keep telling them doesn't work, but the same 3 dummies keep calling. They spend more time trying to understand what is being said that I just send an email anyway.... Or call the gosh darn phone number listed in my info.....

/Work rant 

we use Teams and i love it.  sound quality is great through the laptop. much clearer than phone.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Get a headset or use your earbuds.  Teams is awesome.

I don't want to talk to people that don't require talking too.... If we were in the office they would just IM. :)

I am now also apparently on 13 different teams groups..... So yeah less emails?   But I don't follow all the threads closely

Im sure its great if you are in 1 or 2 teams but everyone wants to take advantage of TEAMS and for me its just a hot mess - I hate it

We use Basecamp and it's great. Not sure how we lived without it.

Question:  I got a new phone - a Google Pixel 4.  It's......okay.  For some reason, I can't use FBGs message boards on it.  I can sometimes log in, but I try to post or change threads and I get timed out.  

Please advice, will answer yours.

What browser are you using? Maybe try a different browser like Firefox and see if that works.

Chrome.  Which is usually top of the line, but I think you might be on to something.  Thanks GB.

It hasn't been a joy, tbh.  I went from a Samsung Galaxy J7 to this thing and I feel like a guy that woke up from a 20 year nap and doesn't recognize the world around him.

I ran into an issue the other day where one of the IP addresses my VPN uses was blocked by FBGs. Somebody was very naughty in Miami (in addition to the current Spring Breakers).

@kevzilla and @General Malaise (and other Portland folks interested), hope to see you both in your respective cities late next week. I'll text you (Kev) when we land in Vegas Thursday. Planning on spending most of the day with my sister, but open Thursday night. You might actually meet the elusive Mrs. O :excited:. GM, I get into Portland next Friday around noon and will be out on the coast all day Saturday through Sunday afternoon. I am free Sunday afternoon/night (I just realized it's Easter so nothing doing Sunday) and all day Monday.

I suspect most of my trepidation has to do with being on Sprint, tbh.

Which reminds me: with the merger, can I go to T-Mobile stores instead? All the Sprint stores in the area have posters of me in the break room.

Mine is scheduled for Thursday.  I'm hoping for antlers, although I would probably only be able drive around in convertibles.

We know you're wearing orange, we're mainly concerned for the guy with antlers.

Does Wendy’s never have baked potatoes because nobody orders them, or does nobody order them because they never have them?

And are they square?

 

 

I can say with confidence- I've never stepped foot in a Wendy's. Just didn't have them around where I grew up.

80's Wendy's was the best, with the newspaper tables and beaded curtains.

This was our "fancy" stepping out burger place in the 80s in NE Philly. Normally it was Roy Rogers or Gino's

We had a McDs, Jack in the Box, Der Wienerschnitzel, Round Table Pizza, Denny's and Howard Johnson's. HJs was our "fancy" place as HS students.

Anyone have a Rax’s Roast Beef by them growing up? They had about 500 locations at one point in the 80s. They had a pretty killer salad bar as well. Now they’re down to something like 15 stores with almost all of them being in Ohio.

Loved Rax.  I thought there was only one left, here in Ohio.  Have been wanting to do a road trip.

I guess Pizza Hut was the "nice" restaurant where I grew up, though tbh we spent most of our time drunk driving with occasional stops at Sonic for mixers.

Red Lobster was my family's "fancy" place.  Friday's was the epitome of coolness.

Ground Round on Sundays.  Noble Romans(The OG) pizza on Friday nights.

 

Do you remember the Brown Derby on Far Hills?

http://www.raxroastbeef.com/locations.html

according to wiki ...the West Union and Georgetown are now closed.  

related but not close ...Ohio is also the some of another childhood favorite of mine - Arthur Treachers.

There are three of the original-style Arthur Treacher's left in America, all in Northeast Ohio. The Cleveland area location is at 12585 Rockside Road; Garfield Heights; 216-662-6067. There is also one at 1833 State Road in Cuyahoga Falls; 330-923-8900. There is also one in Niles: 2 Youngstown Warren Road; Pinetree Square; Niles, 330-505-2625.

The Cuyahoga Falls location is only a couple of miles from where I lived for a number of years - AND very close to my fav burger place - SWENSONS!!

We didn’t have Red Lobster. It was a knockoff called Seafood Shanty.

Yeah.  The only times we got to grace the ol Brown Derby was my Dad's birthday or when his Mom visited from Florida.

Had Grub Steak once in high school.  It was good.  Never been in the Pine Club.  Closest I ever got was the Oakwood club.  Once.

Have no idea that it's still as good - but as a grown-up now, I would strongly suggest you hit the Pine Club (they better still have the onion straw dammit).  Dark, leather booths, no reservations, horseshoe bar with great martinis, and crusty rare steaks ...love it.
