The Register: Prudential Financial finds cybercrims lurking inside its IT systems

So the clients computer ended up not being the power supply. The psu fan was working just fine.

Appears to not be shutting down and working for now. Well see for now.

Really difficult support call today with a PowerBI developer.

Based on the details in the ticket, it seemed pretty clear that the connection(s) used by the PBI report were using the wrong credentials.

I tried repeatedly to explain this via Slack. But it just wouldn't sink in. They insisted on a virtual meeting. So I gave in.
