1. “[H]e has two separate systems, one for e-mail and another for Internet browsing.”
Erm, you know that means both systems require Internet access, right?
2. “”So now if I see a link, see an article, what do I do?”
“He would “go through the trouble” of copying down the link into a PDF file that he would “send to the other side” – that is, send to his work e-mail.”
“He would then access his work e-mail and call up the article.”
Erm, of all things, you copy it into a bloody PDF document? Not docx, not txt, but pdf. Clever. You might as well key in the URL manually. It’s probably going to be easier with URL shorteners around.
And then you send it to what “other side”??!!??!! You mean you send a link you see in your personal computer to your work email and… what? Access the link from your work computer?
Or you send the link to you see in your work computer on your work email to your work email (??) and access the link via your personal computer when you could simply have accessed your with email with your personal computer and clicked on it? HUH??!!
Or you mean you strictly don’t access work email with your personal computer all? (If so, how are you going to ensure that people do this?)
3. “If he wants to share it with his colleagues, he can forward it via e-mail on his work computer.”
Yeah, and they would have to scan the attachments you send for malware just in case, right? We are all for security, aren’t we?
4.”I share it with my colleagues on PDF so that they don’t have to go through the opposite process, send it all the way back out again and then browse for it.”
WTF does this even mean? Will you please use standard English? Otherwise I will get your press secretary to write you a snarky letter.
