Two pimple on a project can be more efficient due to different approaches. When does this effect stop?

How many points should a Christmas star have?

9:30 and I'm in clean the desk mode.

Is it the summer shutdown yet?

Looking forward to it this year.

Anyone know of a reasonable company to use for a managed GitLab instance on hardware located in Australia?

Our IT support company has 'set up' a managed Linux cloud server for us. I log in and attempt to install useful packages, connection to servers fails. Put in support request to have that fixed at 10:30am Friday.

8:30am I reply that all outbound connections are failing, can they please fix.

When should I expect the next useless reply?
