NHS IT loses key contractor

Saw this coming from the start

I used to work for one of the "Early" adoptor sites. Basically my "boss" thought he knew all that there was about IT and best practices on networking. This is what lead him to take over another hospital that was properly VLAN'd/segmented and reconfigure it so that all "subnets" were in VLAN 1. This is the same boss that told Fujitsu and CfH/NpfIT how it was "going to be" in this hospital. I left after being there for two years because I really really hate to put my name on the bottom line of networking when its as screwed up as that... I have more pride than that.

/me grabs white lab coat so that no one realizes I work in the IT department

Computacenter hires chairman

New(S) Chairman?

Thought that they had gone into the print business for a moment... specially as they havent been too succesful with their "data" business... kinda reminds me of Getronics back in 2000-2003...

Paris because even she would read it twice for nothing else but that she didnt understand it the first time.

Welcome to Las Vegas - Home of the technology superpower you've never heard of

Does anyone else see something fishy with the building?

They are showing you the "building" in the video but if you look at it carefully you can see what appears to be "dead" spots. Makes me wonder just HOW far underground they are going with this as well? Specially since they have "military" clients - and we all know how anal the US military is about putting things "underground".

/me grabs coat.. its the conspiracy white hat/trenchcoat combo.

I can see a return of old error codes

Long long time ago, when there was DOS there was a wonderful error code that we used to have loads of laughs over.. it was a I/O Error.. well "technically" its Input/Output Error but we all agreed that it was REALLY IdiotOperator Error...

Yeah.. bring back the I/O error codes...

@ Remy Redert

Never said it would be easy BUT it would keep MS busy running a few CPU cycles trying to figure it out.. I know between me and another 40 ppl in my department that we still are not sure if we have the "right" licensing structure for the organisation!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Tax structure for MS as MS structure is for licensing

Think the title says it all. The Tax structure that MS should be paying should be just as difficult to negociate as the licensing structure for MS is.

New York's Freedom Tower to depend on RFID

Freedom?

First of all this [quote] Americans wouldn't know true freedom if... [/quote] is coming from a country that in one city (London) has one camera for every 4 ppl in it; and you "claim" you are free!! ROFL...

Second, yes I agree that Americans have given up many freedoms in the past years all in the name of "national security". Being ex-military, I am all to aware of the "freedoms" that have been sacrificed in the name of security.

Third, Yes I think it is a shame that the American public will allow the tower to be called Freedom tower, as a) it has NOTHING to do with what it is replacing b) has nothing to do with WHY its replacing another building and c) is probably the best name they could have come up with to be ridiculed by the rest of the world. Personally, I would have prefered it to be named something more appapro for the fallen civil servants, tower workers that lost their lives, or just let some big business pay for the right to have it named after them.
