Not so nice is that I'm about to ruin a Friday morning for a bunch of people because of a series of unfortunate events and an upset foreign government. - shrift

Popping in very quickly with a request (cross-posted with Natter): Facebook has disabled my account and given me 30 days to request a review. Does anyone have tips or tricks to get it back? Thanks.

Does anyone use and like some kind of inter-office messaging type system? One of my practices was using a messenger program to send messages from reception to the various individuals and groups, but it is ancient and I can't support it. Biggest issue is that it runs on the desktop but users are usually in cloud sessions and the message doesn't pop up on top of the remote session and just sits hidden on the desktop.

I've been using Slack for quite a few years and it's been pretty effective.

I played with Slack a little but it wasn't giving me the kind of pop ups I was looking for.. It could be just a configuration of notification thing. I might spend some more time with it this weekend.

There are a lot of integrations available for Slack so you might be able to use something to make a more prominent notification. I know that I get prompted about Slack messages in the App on my computer, and then a notification that buzzes my phone, and also one that buzzes my watch.

Nice update, I finally found the company that wrote the old messenger app that they use at the office and they have an updated one that does the multiple platforms for the same user which is what I needed. So no learning curve. Woot! Thanks, ND.

I know the new apple air tags are just tiles only probably more expensive but I want them anyway?

Hey. New board.

How very apple

Yeah my only problem is what I really need one for is my AirPods case. and it looks like they are too big to just stick on the back. Not cool!!

From what I have read, the Apple air tags are actually better than Tile, I mean as long as you have an iPhone.
