Tanks for the memories: Building a post-Microsoft Office cloud suite

fran 2

Re: Whilst I'm no fan of Microsoft..

I just migrated our office to G Suite from MS, we ended up giving 1/3 of the users office back as a standalone as we couldn't prise Excel from some cold dead hands.

That being said, most people prefer the Team Drives over SharePoint, but the ability to share sub-folders in Teams is causing some angst among G suite users.

G suite Vault is pretty good for archiving, holding and search, though annoyingly deleted users' data is also removed from the vault.

G Suite is still quite immature compared to O365, however for SME's it is a cheaper and easier to manage offering

Ireland's govt IT: Recession and job cuts forced us to adapt

fran 2

Re: Hmmm...

Most IT jobs are in Dublin, but Limerick is a sizeable enough city by Irish standards, so there should be opportunities, Shannon is a 15 minute drive from there, it is a "new town" and to be frank pretty boring, but the Airport is well served and the industrial zone around there has plenty of jobs going.

You are also within a fairly short drive of Cork, Kerry and Galway, and some of the beautiful Atlantic coast. chech out monster.ie eolas.ie and computerjobs.ie for vacancies

Re: Hmmm...

Not in the public sector at the moment, however in the private sector there are a huge amount of both established and start-up companies requiring skills across the IT board, in all sectors, a quick look at monster.ie will show you how many positions are available. I put my CV out on various recruitment sites at the weekend and have already been asked to attend 4 interviews.

On the down side property in Dublin is at a premium and rents very expensive

had a call to reset a locked out user account:

"I have forgotten my username"

Me: "ok, your username is X and the password will be the same, you will be prompted to change it at login"

5 Minutes later, another call: "I'm still locked out"

Another rested

"I am still locked out"

Eventually discovered user was typing in "the same" for the password

Merry Christmas all us on call support gnomes!
