The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Can you recommend any good IT asset management web application? At the moment we do not have any formal way to monitor all the equipments purchased like servers, firewall, cables, MacBook, etc.
We are looking for an application where we can easily feed in all the equipments we have along with serial number, year they were purchased and if there are any issues and similarly for software licences, to monitor when we need to renew it, log in details of solution providers etc.
Many of them are sensible questions from people who need help - but some of them are lazy little sh*ts that can't be bothered to think for themselves and want someone else to do all the hard work for 'em while they get the rewards.
The first lot make the second bearable, but sometimes there is a need to vent the frustration, and the desk can only take so many bangs from my head.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
Let those who never have bitten off more than they can handle throw the first rock.
While it's a myth that we don't have any speed limits at all, we do have long stretches where there is only a recommended speed of 130 km/h, but no limit. Strangely enougfh it's only the foreigners who can't live with that. Some go crazy and drive like there's no tomorrow, others (not looking at anyone who wears wooden shoes and usually drags a tulip and cheese container behind the car) crawl around as they are used to and hold everything up.
Yey, to LastPass. Simple enough to use, with cross platform support.
Occasionally OTT with some of the security requirements, and not sure it really gets having multiple concurrent devices in use but otherwise really like.
We could build a little microcontroller board with a display to plug in between the keyboard and the computer. You store all passwords on the microcontroller and select them on a LCD text display. They are then sent to the computer as if you had typed them. Changing passwords would work in a similar way. When you are finished, you can just pull out the device and take it with you. No passwords are stored on the computer at all.
I use keeper - it works across multiple devices.
When I hit an issue with google two factor authentication going south on my device(not the fault of Keeper but the google app) they followed up my questions with helpful advice and then checked with me on whether I had resolved the issue.
I am one of those old fashioned people who believe that good customer service counts for a lot, hence why I have stick with Keeper.
