Feel the need to release bile. There has been a security update. 'SECURITY' the end result is I had to use my personal mobile (I don't have a company one) to down load the Microsoft Authentication App and run it to be allowed to get in to my email (Outlook) I then had to use it again to open Word is wrong! If I have to use it for every M$ App I will not be doing much. To start to empty my bile ducts I sent a very blunt email to the Head of Corperate security, think it would land on his get caught by his fire wall...One of help desk people was on the phone to him and I was mentioned by name as having written a blunt email (I did remove the 'Elephant you and horse you rode in on'), might be looking for a new job on Monday!
Don't forget to include the invoice for the new fully loaded phone you're buying for work and its service plan on todays expense report, or all the hours you spend farting around with security theater instead of working as a separate line item on your time sheet.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Well I am told mine was respectful & very blunt. Tomorrow as hols, turn up Monday, Jobcenter - Tuesday Well I am defended by my Line Manager who in her Email pointed out I had more experience of security (MOD) than anyone else and while I was finding it awkward/unmanageable something really needed to done.
Two former employers tried something like that too.
Luckily, I was the only person without a company phone (exactly for this reason) so I told them I'd no longer be using my phone for work related stuff.
The first company decided it wasn't worth it and I never heard from the new security measures again and for the second company I actually ended up deleting my mails from my phone
GPS location in company phone is prohibited / restricted, but hey... we are moving our whole Email traffic to office 365
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Visual Studio 2015 is annoying.. it keeps opening my C#, even though I setup VSCode as default.
It starts so slowly.
Beside I have VS2017.
I am trying to "Uninstall it"
It looks very scary. It made me stop VS2017. I can see the UNinstaller "Applying Windows 10 SKD, Tools for Universal, etc..."
I am suddenly afraid the uninstaller is gonna crap my system!
My ADSL connection is too slow to download Visual Studio again and again in one evening of home work!
Well... I successfully uninstalled it. And then I successfully about 20 related products (looked for "2015" in uninstall panel) except for "Microsoft Azure Data Factory Tools for Visual Studio 2015"
Bah this one is only 22Mb.. passable...
And everything seem to be still working.. for now!
