I have been Sharepointed, the PCB I was working on I uploaded to Sharepoint along with the documents. This is per-company policy for security and integrity of projects. I just needed to check something on one of the documents, it has gone(!) the PCB project has been corrupted (Gerbers gone, extra blank pages put in). Thank I kept a copy on my desktop (and two memory sticks, one in a draw, the other in my pocket). Please tell me I'm alone has sharepoint eaten anything of yours or am I alone?
sharepoint? not dead yet?
even ms have stopped talking about it - it's that child they pretend doesn't exist.
On-prem SharePoint servers, maybe, but it seems to be a pretty big part of Office 365. It's "just there", so it makes sense I guess for people to just start using it as a document repository, if nothing else.
There are a couple of levels of recovering stuff that has been deleted. We have several people who keep quotes up there. They work jointly on some of them. Being somewhat paranoid, I wrote a console program that downloads anything changed or created to the file server every night.
That said, I don't think they have ever lost anything. How many document levels (history) do you keep?
Sharepoint is an excellent idea that was/is poorly implemented although it has improved.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
As was mentioned in passing, the answer was ALTRUISM
Key = ALT
Game = RU (Rugby Union - this is a pretty regular substitution in UK crosswords, not entirely convinced that it is used in places that play better games - sorry if it's a tad parochial, that's only just occurred to me).
Philosophy = ISM
Giving ALTRUISM = motivated by kindness.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
