sun4u -> sun4v migration already supported

You can already move workloads from sun4u to sun4v (and the reverse) with FLAR images..

This is well documented.

People still watch TV

Wow. Reading your article I find it interesting that people still watch broadcast TV. Having been watching only streamed content for the past few years, I forgot that there are still commercials.

Researchers out Apple over unpatched iCal bugs

TranceMist
Thumb Up

Classic

This is a classic example of when posting to the community makes sense, and in fact is necessary when a vendor won't get off of their duff to fix the problem.

Note that they worked with Apple for 4 months and the problem is still not fixed?

Shame on Apple, iCal in Leopard is an embarrassment compared to Tiger.

(disclaimer: in general, I love Leopard)

Too bad they had to direct this at a Zoo... would have been better on a global scale and directed at some large evil corporate villain.

You sound like another weak woman bemoaning what you think you deserve at the hands of some man.

Password Protect

I'm just wondering here... most people don't even bother to password protect their user account on their laptop, let along access to their email (Outlook, Thunderbird, whatever).

If you password protect access to your laptop (i.e. login screen with password comes up whenever you open the laptop) and also the same for your email client(s), then what?

They can't get into your laptop without your password or breaking in. If they access it without your permission is this an illegal seizure? Or will they claim "probable cause".

Or will the DHS try to get around all of this by claiming that the constitution does not apply to them?
