One Week With GNOME Classic: Day Three

Filed under

Today marked my first work-from-home day since I started this little experiment. Working from home is notable insofar as it means that there is a period of time after login before I have access to my internal work network. This is relevant because I am logged into both internal and external IRC servers at all times during my workday. However, since I’m not on the internal network until I fire up the VPN and perform the dark and secretive rites necessary to authenticate to it, there’s a period of time where access to internal features will be unavailable.

What I discovered this morning is that Empathy will attempt to sign me into all of the configured services immediately upon login. Because there are services that are unreachable, it means that at login time I’m essentially struck in the face by a series of messages about how my services are unreachable or there has been an error, etc.
