Seriously? Rolling Eyes

Protip guys. You can save some of your electricity bill by turning the monitors off!

The article literally states:

"The work is progressing steadily on the screens,"

As in, videos are most likely being rendered etc.

You don't need the monitor on to use a VPN. The guy more than likely went around and turned them all on and then turned the lights off for a cool video.

yeah, I am working pretty much the same way for security reasons and it's the sae situation where monitors can be off, but they can be turned on for supervising.

There is also some crappy virtulization software that needs the monitor to be turned on, it's be hilraious if that was how they are working.

Wow, I did not even know that Digital Frontier actually has more than 200 employees. That is really impressive! The last time when I have contacted the studio, they had 89 employees, and dude, it was back in 2018, not so long ago! However, I must say that TGX Remote Desktop is not the best software for this kind of jobs. I would still prefer something like TeamViewer or maybe even something else. By the way, do they know that they could actually connect directly to the damn computer and access its data without turning it on?! If they keep on working like that, they will need to look for a cheaper electricity plan. By the way have recently decided to change my plan. I have decided to go for the economy seven tariff. It is incredible, and gives you 7 hours of cheaper electricity! If you want to change the plan, just go for this one. If you do not have enough time to do that, just give someone a letter of authority, you learn how to use it here https://www.simplyswitch.com/energy/guides/what-is-a-letter-of-authority/ , and let them do it for you.
