I got pulled over around 8 years ago when I was in college. After the standard "ID please?" and running license and plates, she came back and asked "Do you know how fast you were going?" "Fast enough to find love" I retorted faster than my brain could tell my mouth to shut up. After a brief pause I just lost it and started laughing. She leaned down with a huge grin on her face and simply said "Slow down a bit. Have a nice day." To this day still probably the most simultaneously dumb and brilliant thing I've ever said. Glad she had a sense of humor
A blonde got pulled over - the blonde female police officer walked up to the car and asked for ID.
The driver searched frantically in her purse for a while and finally said to the blonde policewoman, "What does a driver's license look like?'
Irritated, the blonde cop said, "Don't be a smartass!, it's got your picture on it!"
The blonde driver frantically searched her purse again and found a small, rectangular mirror down at the bottom. She held it up to her face and said, "Aha! This must be my driver's license", then handed it to the policewoman.
The cop looked in the mirror, handed it back to the driver and said, "You're free to go. And, if I had known you were a police officer too, we could have avoided all of this."
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
We have some big files that need to be sent from a remote computer to the company server each day.
The work computer has a 10 MB DSL connection and the server has an optical fiber (50MB) connection.
The remote worker is not tech savvy.
I can imagine three ways of handling that:
1. Files stored in the local computer and send them each day to the remote server (via a scheduled backup that will run automatically at a certain hour). The computer user can shut the computer down at the evening.
2. Files stored in the local computer synchronized automatically using a kind of "Google Drive" that the server has natively included.
3. Files in the remote server and access them remotely via WebDAV or similar.
