Do you get paid while LabVIEW starts up?


Recommended Posts

A twist to a Slashdot story.

But then again I do get paid while getting coffee and discussing the latest computer technology...

Lawyers.... Welcome to a tech company. (My 'booting time' 10 minutes, for booting, logging in, outlook, firefox, LabVIEW (twice sometimes)).

The bottom line is, during booting of your workplace you should get a cup of coffee (or two).

Getting paid to watch LV boot is generally not a problem unless....

You are standing in the center of a semi-circle of people watching you and you have to come up with a speach to distract them while its happening.

all sort of different stories, Introduction to the topic, asking people questions etc... either it is LabVIEW starting up/restart or Signal express.

Havent got any chance for coffee during these kind of sitiuation. :unsure:

When I teach I try to remember to start LabVIEW before the class starts :)

10 minutes? I can see from a cold boot defiantly taking me that long. But I (and many other people who don't care about energy usage) just lock my computer at the end of the day Monday-Thursday. When I come in the next morning I just unlock the PC and I have outlook and firefox, and what ever versions of LabVIEW I was using, already open. I realize it's wasteful to have a 500W pc powered on all night even if it's idle, but I can't stand that long boot up time.

I've never found the LabVIEW load time to be too long, but I've never been giving a presentation and needed to launch it. Maybe then it would seem like an eternity.

You're despicable! I'm going to wait until you've gone home every night and turn off all your equipment from now on ...
