cost you 3 dollars?
fair comment - I must admit to not dealing much with IIS or Exchange if i can help it so I bow to collective wisdom..
However, there are still other vendors products that aren't amenable to being configured via a command line - we use some 3rd party web parts for a sharepoint installation that seem to need juju beads, incense and a full moon to get working correctly.. as well as a good understanding of JapanEngrish
maybe my employer is atypical (local government) but quite a few of our windows servers run middleware and client/server stuff that absolutely must have a GUI to allow it to be configured and interrogated.
there is a huge legacy of windows based server-side software that is not in any way command line based - including IIS and Exchange for example.
It's always disappointing to see how stupidity prevails in areas where you don't expect it.
Found myself wondering why a telnet port would be left open in the design of this thing, and then realised that it's been built down to a price - and security costs money.
Ergo, the company that makes these has an eye on costs.
Ergo, their other products will also have the same design ethos.
And so will anyone else in the same market (if they want to compete on price that is).
Unless/until someone important (hah! define that one!!) or maybe a lot of people get severely damaged/worse by this type of design flaw then adding cost (security) into a huge range of small cheap devices will just not happen.
Don't forget a metre of fallopian tube...
Curiously enough quite a few people who use Office for a living would be quite happy if it still looked like it did in 2005 and not get metamorphosed into some childish disaster area every year, just to satisfy the whims of a deranged moron who thinks we all need a new 'compelling experience'
My Z30 is on the latest vodaphone version and seems to be stable now regarding BBS and battery life.
Only problem is the screen cracks too easily when you drop the thing!
"most people would consider 660bhp and 1,650ft/lbs of torque adequate for road use" - I should chuffin' cocoa!!
could you retype that again but USE CAPITALS PLEASE?

Oh. you'll need the icon as well...
We need an organisational chart showing the hierarchy at the SPB - including the boffin count!
It's been a long morning so far, not helped by reading The Dilbert Principle on my way to work & concluding I'm doomed...

'fraid it's the daily fail but still worth a watch...
Didn't kids used to use BBC micros and Logo years ago to make a robotic turtle move around the classroom?
An introduction to a sort of BASIC and you got to make it do something cool
Or am I too old? <sigh>
Thought we banned that "word" years ago. Yes, I'm going to be 60 next year. Yes I also want a Victor Meldrew icon. No, I don't want anything made by Fujitsu.
Thank you and goodnight.
mind you - you might just end up with orange fur and very long arms....
Aaargg! my brains is leaked outa my head..
getting in the box with the cat - or not...
look out for the one that looks like Yul Brynner - hell! they all do!!
OK I'm game - and probably completely wrong too!
1. Early Bloodhound?
2. looks like a Thor tip but the body's wrong
3,4,5,6 sharp pointy things that go bang
7. Canberra PR (7 or 9, can't remember)
8. I should know this but can't remember & am going to kick myself when someone tells me!
if you squint in the right way.... No?
the grubby mac please...
will always triumph over youth & exuberance!
someone who gets involved with cunning stunts, sometimes in (on?) a tandem....
We would have to change the bulb for a swirly thing alert sir...
I thought you sniffed it through a £5 note...
What?... What?... oh, OK - I'm going....
As it's Virgin I believe they are considering tilting the light traveling down the fibre optic cables, by means of prisms, based on their work done with wobbly trains..
mind you, who else would bid on the world's largest lunatic asylum?
waiting for the deluge of comments quoting lines from the film...
I think the moderaterix should thwough them to the floor....woughly!
I find your lack of faith.....disturbing
I'd like to nominate AC @ 14:44 for FOTW - A worthy contender who shows promise, once they get over the cautious use of capital letters....
license? - 'twas lifted by a pirate, me hearties Ahaaaarrrg!

Green for Go icon - just for the hell of it..
I vote for the NHS to mislay something (no, not a soggy foot either - b*st**d! me beer shot out me nose when i read that!)
thumbs up for a damn fine idea....!

Try Scotland - we still use them here.....
I have to confess to changing passwords at the end of the year & having a moment of (mild) panic when I came back from holiday.. but then remembered the name of the git in personnel that installed 180solutions toolbar on his pc & it all came flooding back!
Thumbs up, cos it's all working (at the moment, anyway!)
he (it?)'s starting to write amost English & the Use Of Caps is less! - I wonder if the black helicopter men have found hi... hey! who are you? how did you get in he................
You've set him off again! - pass the dried frog pills to AMFM someone....
amanfromMars almost made sense there! - wonder if he (it?) has been upgraded/got at?
I just checked my primary WSUS server & I see that WDS (windows Desktop Search) V2.6.5, 2.6.6 & 3.0.1 are all classed as plain "updates" & are all set as "no approval set" - meaning that I don't have to worry about it springing up when I'm not expecting it - is someone being a little cavalier with the auto-approval thingy?
I work in the public sector & even when you remind the mpeg storing, CD ripping loon who just installed the 180solutions toolbar "cos it looked cool" that they signed an acceptible use policy, they just complain of harrassment. I'd like to show them what real harrassment is - BOFH style!
