My boss has a camera in the office for "security" reasons and I happen to be just right under it, exposing my computer screens to it. So I wrote a script that sends me an email whenever the camera port is accessed.

    Doesn't an email have too much delay?

    @kunashe me or him?

    @-xlf its sent internally so I get it within 2 seconds which is good enough for me

    @ironedr I asked him the exact question and he said it is if everyone knows it's there

    @KnightsOfCode from myself to myself

    @eirabie did you add some kind of connection delay where you would have time to switch back to work?

    Once worked in a company where the CEO had the kitchen bugged because that's where a lot of private chat happens. It was fitted over a weekend and by 10am Monday we all knew it was there. That particular CEO was a clueless, space-wasting c*nt, and so were all his fawning, arse-licking underlings on the board.

    @enen he does. But if he wants to go through 8 hours of footage everyday then he's most welcome.

    @runbrun11 ah, you just change your tasks when he's initially watching. Also you could make a python script that closes/minimizes certain windows automatically

    @tisaconundrum I'll also have it set to notify me every 5 minutes if he keeps watching
