In my 20 years of working in the office and an additional 4 working 100% WFH, I’ll throw my worthless internet opinion out there as to why: It comes down to the culture of the company.

Some companies see a real benefit from water tank conversations, face-to-face meetings, and the ability for managers to ask someone in person on a moment’s notice to do things. There is also a lack of trust in the employees being able to perform correctly without physical oversight in many companies. Granted and aside from the trust issue, there is some truth to that, but can in fact be realigned with the exact same benefit by retooling communications. It’s up to each company however to formulate the best course of action to remedy that and many sadly fail, resulting in RTO mandates.

I’ve been CTF’ing since Doom LAN parties, never seen it either.

Older folks like us tend to not say much or when we do, we keep it game related. We also tend to mute or ignore trolls from the start, so that’s probably why lol.

Unless you are a native Hawaiian, you can only lease the land for 100 years. Further, the cost of living in HI is way way higher than SoCal because everything has to be imported.

Had to go back and look it up. The answer is it just depends. Some land is owned by the State of HI, in which non natives can own it where other land is owned by the Natives through the Monarchy of HI and can only be leased:

Old story: There was a sale at a big box Electronics store on Seagate Barracuda SCSI-2 Wide 9.1GB drives and I bought 6 of them to give me a 40GB RAID-5 on an old mylex dac960 scsi raid card. Bigtime storage in 1999.

Those fed my 3:1 ratio mp3 sharing site that my uunet bot advertised haha.

As a yank who lived in the UK (East Sussex) for several years, I can share the sentiments of my mates there that they believe we Americans still speak a more traditional version of the language than they do now. Specifically pronunciation of words.

For example, Americans have retained the pronunciation of the final “r” in words like “father” and “mother,” while the UK has dropped it. Americans have maintained the “flat a” sound of cat in words like “path” and “class” whereas the UK has mostly replaced that sound with the “broad a” of “father.”

It’s not an exact science, but the rate of change in the language there has gone beyond the 18th century version we Americans still speak today and thus, it can be said American English, at least pronunciation, is more traditional.

Newly Discovered Fossil from the Smithsonian’s Collection Named After Kermit the Frog (www.smithsonianmag.com)

In a paper published today in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, museum paleontologist Arjan Mann and Calvin So, a doctoral researcher at George Washington University, describe a new species of proto-amphibian that they recently discovered in the museum’s fossil collection. They identified several unique features...

have you tried appending the name of the machine to the account? Either using ./username or machinename/username?

On windows you can use powershell to map it as well:

net use <driveletter> \mac\share /Username:machinename\user /persistent:yes

Actually he’s not, he is using a loophole whereby the owners sign an official lease with him for him to reside there.

The other tenant(s) do not have a lease and therefore are not within the legal right to complain.

edit: He also doesn’t do it directly for profit, thus bypassing other laws. His site explains it in a youtube video here: squatterhunters.com/about/

comador, (edited )

The website doesn’t really explain anything though

The video does, but here’s one that may explain it better:

the-sun.com/…/squatter-hunter-flash-shelton-evict…

Why would the legal world take much longer and many more dollars to achieve what this guy can?

The court system here has a huge backlog, so it can literally take a year in MOST cases to get rid of them (if not longer like during Covid). An owner basically has to first call the cops who verify they are not a paying tenant, then weeks later file a petition with the city to have them removed within 90 days, then after 90 days, if they do not vacate, submit a court action to go to court. If they’re a no show on the court date several months later, they will finally get forcibly removed a few weeks after the court date. All this because they, squatters have rights:

sapling.com/…/legally-rid-squatters-california

Why wouldn’t everyone just sign a lease to their friend?

If you have friends willing to take the risk of getting injured or hurt in the process, sure, but I don’t know anyone who would do that personally.

If the landlord is aware of the squatters and then enters into a lease intended to deprive them of possession, how is that not just an end run around the law?

As stated before, it’s a loophole to the squatters rights linked above. Here is SoCal you either wait your turn for your day in court whilst they trash the place OR you do something like this. The law just hasn’t caught up and thus why Squatter Hunter is lobbying for change.
