I had to wait for her to hang up. You hang up on a customer and you get fired.

She refused to accept that the physical line had to be repaired as I saw that she called in 3 more times that day. You get a little nasty note when you get a repeat call with in a week.

This one that too me a bit to get. There are people out there that need reading glasses but are to vain to get them. So they set the resolution to 600x800. Great the can read it but stuff is off the screen. So when you ask them to click on some thing it's not there. Since you are looking at the screen in normal resolution it does not occur to you to ask the user to scroll. The user is pissed at you cause there is nothing for them to click on.

My favorite. This lady calls up and says her DSL is not working. I asked her the usual stuff. Then I ask her does she have dial tone. she said no. I ask her is there any construction going on she said yes. they are digging up the street.It's not uncommon for some ass hole to just dig and hit phone and cable lines. I told her she would have call the pone company so that they can repair the line. She said no I want my DSL fixed now.

Ubuntu Core Snaps door shut on Linux's new Dirty COWs

kain preacher
Silver badge

Re: When did Linux start becoming like Windows?

I've seen that as an issue on windows and linux. Your third party vend picks up their tools and leave. Now what. Lets say it's open source. Now you can hire some to work it. Problem is they find out the last two versions were shit and have to start from beginning. At that point you are not commissioning a rewrite but writing the program from the ground up. Now do you fix it, hire some to write custom software which over the years get fucked up or do you move on to a new program.

Trick not treat: 123 Reg down on Halloween, DNS borked by DDoS

kain preacher
Silver badge

Re: Really?

the can but the chose not to.

Just one example.

fail2ban scans log files (e.g. /var/log/apache/error_log) and bans IPs that show the malicious signs -- too many password failures, seeking for exploits, etc. Generally Fail2Ban is then used to update firewall rules to reject the IP addresses for a specified amount of time, although any arbitrary other action (e.g. sending an email) could also be configured. Out of the box Fail2Ban comes with filters for various services (apache, courier, ssh, etc).

Fail2Ban is able to reduce the rate of incorrect authentications attempts however it cannot eliminate the risk that weak authentication presents. Configure services to use only two factor or public/private authentication mechanisms if you really want to protect services.
