So I'm a developer at a company in auckland and it's my last day. I'm going through old emails an unsubscribing to notifications and such.

Is there other things I should do that are typically forgotten about until its too late?

Make sure you don't leave behind digital content that you don't need them to find later.

Clear your bookmarks, cookies, history, remove personal files from shared folders, local folders. If they offer the option, setup an email auto-responder so that people know who else within the company to contact if they are looking for business information or how to contact you if personal.





Banana?

If you have a company phone, reset it, and remove any accounts/Access codes from it. Especially if it is an iPhone - it is a PITA when staff leave and Find My iPhone is still on, because it cannot be reset without their AppleID.

Change the registered email of any accounts that use your work email that you want to carry on using personally after you leave, Git Hub etc.

If you have a Cisco network phone you can logout from the phone (not that I ever get any calls)

Also try to think of any online accounts (like this) esp. Paid gaming(think steam)that you signed up to using that email... You can't ever reset your password if that's your recovery address (!)

Nuke the site from orbit - it's the only way to be sure.

True. I do get some emails from people who can't get access to Geekzone after changing work emails. 

Strange thing because they should be able to login to their own account and change the email there, but apparently people don't remember their passwords and can't get a password reset sent because they don't have access to the old account anymore.

LastPass anyone?

See what that switch does next to the main router that says 'do not switch off'

Oops, sorry that's for last day at school

Answer the phone with the name of your new employer...when asked why, "im preparing myself for the new job"
Make some fresh popcorn and hold it next to the aircon system so it wafts throughout the building....
Everyone time your boss walks past you, start giggling.

Hmm some good ideas here cool

I particularly like the Fork Bomb idea - unfortunately (or fortunately?) i don't think any one else could defuse it....

All our hardware on site is locked in a server cage so the power switch is not really a possibility :-(

Mabey i could fill the sugar jar with salt...

But on a more serious note thanks for the tips on phone/shared directories and digital subscriptions.

For a moment I thought that might be something awesome with cutlery.

Hide a fish behind a filing cabinet.

Edit: I see XPD had a similar idea
