    that would be why.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    :Phone rings:

    CEO assistant: "Could you have a look, boss' machine acts weird?"
    Me: "Have you tried to restart the machine already?"
    CEO assistant: "Yes ... no ... I don't know. Could you have a look please?"
    Me: "OK, so I will come over to boss' office and will restart the machine."
    CEO assistant: "Yes ... well, I don't what you'll do."
    Me (hoping that the answer would be "Oh, well try that first ourselves."): "I just told you what I will do: I now will come over to simply. restart. the. machine. Is that what you want me to do?"
    CEO assistant: "Yes."

    Me walks over and restarts the machine, turns around and walks back to my place ...

    I could have instead, you know, for example keep coding that interface the whole company waits for since a couple of months and has just been greenlighted this week by the uppers-there-are and now everyone keeps bugging me about when it finally will be done.

    CEOs are not normal people. They are entrusted with running multi billion dollar companies but also have no idea how literally anything even remotely technical works and frequently get suckered by scammers..

    Sometimes I wonder how they manage to tie their own shoes, then one day I noticed that all of upper management has slip on shoes..

    The blame here doesn't go to the CEO, though. The assistant is a complete waste, OTOH. You'd assume that one managing a CEO's schedule and tasks and such would be at least below-average capable of handling that absolute niche piece of software (NOT), completely unknown in any modern office environment (NOT), called "Outlook". But that's too much to expect here.

    - Requesting the right to 'Send on behalf of', but not capable to actually send emails on behalf of? Check!
    - Managing the CEO's calendar, but not capabale to switch from the pesonal calendar over to the CEO's one? Check!
    - Requesting that old contacts from long (we're literally talking decades here) gone CEO's be provided/exported as a PST, but not knowing how to open a PST file? Check!

    I could go on. And that's just for Outlook. There's that other strange program called "Word", which poses similar, divine knowledge requiring challenges, i.e. saving a copy of the current document to a different folder/with another name.

    I'm really not expecting VBA macro coding or Outlook forms creation type of knowledge. But for a dedicated CEO's assistant ("Assistent der Geschäftsleitung") job, the knowledge how to send emails on behalf of the CEO, should be one of the most basic requirements.

    [Added]
    Oh, and it didn't surprise us the least that that assistant managed to email a scan of the CEO's monthly credit card bill to literally everyone.

    Yesterday I destroyed a brand new KVM by closing the lid of it while there were some plastic stand offs on the keyboard. Literally the first thing I did after arriving at a clients new office to begin migration work. The hinge was really stiff so I didn't notice any extra resistance when I closed it over

      Spoiler:
    Worth $1200 maple bucks apparently, cant get a replacement panel because it's some custom massive 4:3 screen so the whole rack mounted KVM needs to be replaced

    Yeah because no one else has ever had issues with products.. I hate apple as much as the next person but this isn't something I have seen before.. Perhaps it's something he's doing with his wrists.

    On a slightly related note, I replaced the battery on my moto360 and it's stopped crashing at random now.. All those internet people were right, it was the battery not being able to hold a charge.
