Which I often do, and the way it's set up here, there's a menu option to "lock session."

When you do that it goes to the login page with an "in use" notification.

They say "available" when nobody is logged in already.

But it's small, and people don't see it, and sometimes they go to the librarian who also doesn't notice it and they reboot the machine.

So now I use scratch paper, write "in use" on it, and lay that on top of the keyboard, then I turn the chair around and lean it up against the table backwards.

Easy to see.

Well yesterday, while i was outside smoking, this little  Tex-Mex  kid tossed the paper aside and rebooted it himself....


I know he could read it.

Deport his ass!
I kid.. Just slap the taco out of his teeth.

I busted him, made him go sit somewhere else.

"I'm already on that one...that's why I put this on there" Grabs note kid brushed aside.

Why this thread then?

I just wanted to write Tex-Mex.

I really enjoy Tex-Mex food, too! Chuckle

Old fogies booted me off last time.

What the real problem is:

The little banner that says: Available

or

In Use

is sort of small.

Nobody looks at it.

When they fail to log in, they reboot the machine.

Because they're used to windows screwing up.

Lmao

They have to do it at home all the time.

What I've started doing is turning the chair around backwards and getting two pieces of scratch paper and writing "IN USE, I'll BE RIGHT BACK!"

On them, then I put one in the chair and the other on the keyboard.

Kids ignore those too.

Best women are Wierdo's, Nerds, Homemakers (hardest job) , and intellectuals.

I luv librarians.


Yeah3

But I'm too broke to ask one out.

Chuckle

Yeah, they are heavy maintenance. There is one (weemons) sitting upstairs doing a spreadsheet on my next venture. Did I ask for it? No! Will I have to perform, Yes! There are a lot of smart women, find one and challenge yourself. My wife, there was a moment where I gave up and wanted to ring a bell. ( I was older) I owe her.

I'll find a nerd girl after I get my financial house in order.

Find her, no matter the age. Big High Five.

Has to be at least 30. Older than me is okay, but I don't want to rob a cradle.
