Maybe belongs in the pet peeve thread, but whenever someone says they're going to contact someone at my new work they say they're going to "ping" that person. Do other offices say this?

Maybe they just want to make sure the computer is connected to the network :dunno:

I hear people say ping. Also, if someone is following up on an email they sent that hasn't yet been responded to, they'll forward that same email and put "ping" in the body. Nothing else. Just ping. These pinging acts are only done by the younger people.

Calling people is "buzzing" at my office.  Just give me a buzz after you get out of that meeting.

maybe ping is an acronym for something work related?

I think of buzz as being specific to phone class or drop-ins

Seriously though I'm glad that term hasn't made it into my company's lingo (yet).  If I ever see or hear somebody use "ping" I will mock them by reenacting that line of the movie.  It will be me doing an imitation of Sean Connery doing an imitation of a Soviet sub captain.  It will be as ridiculous as it sounds and hopefully make the person who uses "ping" to become aware of just how dumb it is.

But Lync is now called Skype for Business, so that wouldn't make sense.

a hacker could rip off a company for way more money in a much shorter time than if they would just upgrade an outdated, old, non-supported for a full year and half system.
