@th I like the way he's holding the keyboard at 90d; I guess that does make his up/down buttons correspond.

@penguin42 @th

interesting to note that the worker has been issued a unique marked and *branded* uniform (I can understand the high vis as thats standard safety gear for working in the street but I wonder if CCTV ops are trained to check the uniform matches up (or there is even a camera in the billboard to record maintenance) in case "subvertisers" get at this?

@vfrmedia @th Well there is the problem that wearing hi-vis and carrying something like tools will get you ignored in a lot of places.

@penguin42 @th indeed, and in some bits of the Netherlands (more in the rural areas) there's already an entire subculture of middle aged and even older men dressing up as maintenance staff and infiltrating pirate radio transmitters into all sorts of random tall structures (including mobile phone masts and high voltage electricity pylons!)

@penguin42 @th i totally get why he does this! when i was using a rotated portrait monitor, it'd boot up sideways, and try as i might i could not make myself move the mouse down by moving the trackball's ball left... visual orientation is important!

@th@social.v.st •••

is that a keyboard

is he literally going to troubleshoot that computer on the middle of the street

@th You laugh, but this is what a real pro looks like.

he even has a logitech K400.

I know, I also have a logitech k400 exactly for this kind of crap

@hj@shigusegubu.club @th@social.v.st it could be worse

most screens i see over here have windows instead

i know this because they're always erroring out and/or showing the shell

@th @dashie
I never thought they would run on a pendrive but I understand the convenience.

Can the Bluetooth be cracked? 😏
