Yeah, I get that part. But what about "difficulty with this"?
If the whole thing is just the same clue, then that doesn't seem to match the cryptic format I am used to seeing here. Like I am looking for a definition, and then the other part is an alternatively way to "build" the same words... maybe that is still a valid approach though?
Trying and failing to work from home due in part to the wet string broad band connection and the laptop I have, locked for my security. Having to use a 'Mini Hub' due to the broadband being unstable I find I can't use the mini-hub as the Work lappy will not see things plugged into the usb ports! So I have go to go into the Office to winge at IT and attend an Online meeting. I wanted to work from home today!
the Work lappy will not see things plugged into the usb ports!
this is a great security feature as some employees like to steal source code, etc. and put them on thumb drives.
My company has the laptop encrypted with Bitlocker and so if you store something on a USB device, it encrypts it, so that only the laptop can read it back again.
My company also installed extra security software to prevent uploading anything to non approved repos, etc. so stealing source code, etc. and uploading it to a personal drop box, cloud storage, git repo, etc. can't be done either.
My laptop is currently the most secure digital device I have had in my entire life, I think.
Sure, I get that. The old saying, you can't prevent access, merely increase its cost has never been more true.
What is also true however, is that if you flaunt your distrust for those you rely upon, you're simply scheduling the time they'll bite you when they can. People that need said measures in order not to steal the company data weren't the best hires in the first place.
Oh. Right. Recruitment firms and HR.
Nevermind. I'm thinking about some alternate universe where these entities aren't dumber than a firehose.
And consultants. Too many firms hire consultants as temporary workers, and consulence companies foster a mercenary environment - they parade us to customers singing our praises and overselling us , just like a pimp would do - so trust is hard to give.

Yeah nothing I hate more than uppers who barely know technology trusting people outside more than inside to make up for their deficiencies. And then implementing the practice when it is convenient to them not the rest of the workforce. Ever wonder why they cause the breach and programmers and IT folk get the claim. Mainly because they are given to much power in the workforce. I honestly can't wait till AI knocks out some of the random things people justify to keep themselves from having to learn on a daily basis. That magic excel sheet I want to blow up everyday and they feel the threat so they try to keep us oppressed in the workforce. A building pipe bursts "Ohh, that was just the weather we can deal with it". My email went down "Find the IT person and skewer them" for a cloud problem that is most of the time on a vendor a consultant recommended for hype. I don't feel business people really understand how to connect the dots and I hate the don't care make it work mentality.
