There were three people involved, including me. I did requests. Then one of the other two complained, to management. The one who always has his headphones on. Also when the room is silent.
We just moved to a new building and I'm sitting next to someone who liked my music and the other two people are sitting about three to four meter away. I can have two speakers and point one directly at me, one directly at my colleague (who wants to listen to my music, he asked for a speaker). As a bonus the speakers are also turned away from my colleagues across the room. Then I can play music just loud enough for us to hear. There is no way my colleagues further away are going to hear it, I checked. To me that sounds like a very reasonable solution to the problem.
If everyone wanted to play their own music you could discuss that and make other arrangements, like headphones. Again, I'm not against headphones or not playing music. I'm just a little sad I'm not allowed to play it anymore (after having done it for three years, having exchanged music with my other colleagues and taking requests). And, as said, I'm not the only one who is bummed out. And I'm a bit mad at the fact we have a good solution, but management wants to push their own 'solution' anyway. After three years just out of the blue. Especially since music is a big deal to me.
I'm now looking for something else to keep me entertained while working. Putting on some good music could really raise my spirit when I needed it! All work and no play make me a dull boy
i'd appreciate it if they knocked it off with that kind of crap and spent 20 minutes fixing the VS2013 resource editor, and then another 20 fixing the properties editor so that it doesn't push the first two rows of controls off the top of the dialog.
