So we got called to attend a "training" meeting on something I consider totally useless because I will never use it -- it's some internal technology I've already gleaned enough information about to know how it works, I certainly don't need "training."

Go to training room because we're not supposed to be distracted. Can't log in to computer. Nobody can log in on the computers in front of them. Finally someone tries rebooting. That works. Log in. These machines are so underpowered and so overburdened with corporate security crap that the login process alone takes close 5 minutes.

We're now 20 minutes into the so called "training" and all I've learned in that the company really knows how to burn money.

So I ask where I'm supposed to go to get at the training video. Of course that wasn't supplied in the email requiring my attendance. Someone says, quite seriously it seems, "just go to SO and ask it about something so you learn something."

I left with the comment "This is a f.... waste of time." Laugh | :laugh:
