Re: Meanwhile inside the office...
What is an "assault" rifle? Is that the same as an assault hammer? Assault speargun? Assault 2x4?
Can you imagine
"Lack of knowledge isn't the holdback with Linux, in my case, it was the behavior of the support."
Can you imagine the brow beating you would get from a M$ support person if you weren't paying for it?
I love how someone can take the experience of one or two bad apples and blame the whole bushel. Just tell them that their mom will kick them out of the basement if they don't behave.
Re: Because the flaws were very different
""No, be smart, disclose it on a Friday night, so a lot of systems that aren't managed 24x7 risk to be left unpatched for two days"
What two days do you speak of? Saturday and Sunday? You get those off? Oh, you must be one of those 8 - 5, M - F admins that I hear about occasionally.
Re: Thank gawd/ess ...
" That's "Internet Protocol", not "Intellectual Property", if you are in management or marketing or otherwise technologically impaired."
Aren't management and marketing synonyms for 'technologically impaired'?
Re: Easy fix for this malarky...
Ghostery, Ad Block Plus, No Script, and I huge black hole list on my DNS server. It's not just for Ads either, it's to cut down on the bandwidth usage.
"I fail to see why rendering HTML in an email client is any more stupid than rendering HTML in a web browser"
It's easier to get folks to click on a link in an email which makes spreading nasties around.
Re: That's not backwards..
That's no moon...
I don't see any backwards text. It only shows up as EEEB with some weird accent marks above the E's.
Plus, don't use an email program that renders HTML. That's probably the second most stupid thing you can do (with running Windows as the first).
Java as a crutch
I have No Script, AdBlock Plus an Ghostery in Firefox and just about every web page I go to either bitches about the ABP or the Java needs to be enabled. Can't go anywere on the web anymore without running into the Java crutch.
Correct me if I'm wrong...
"ISPs and internet backbone providers argue large websites, such as Netflix, that make heavy use of the underlying network should pay towards the deployment and improvement of the web's infrastructure."
Isn't that what we pay a monthly fee for?
Re: And yet...
Don't get me wrong. I do think that we should all be good stewards. We all can't be granola eating, hemp wearing, non-bathing hippies. I guess I could have just said Democrats...
Al Gore is still a total idiot waving the Global Warming flag...
Thrusting my hands in the air, I shouted: “Don’t shoot me!”
Okay, but a thorough ass kicking is probably in order. You might be guilty by association with Piers Morgan just by being a Brit.
Re: Journalistic Integruhty
So, people that break into safes are safehackers?

Re: Typical CNN-level broadcast
"Cut the chap some slack. He might have been a taxi driver who was mistaken for a technology expert."
I doubt that. Even a taxi driver knows more than the tw@'s at CNN.
Re: "We've all done these things"
I propose that we all get naked.
The thing that tickles me shitless is that they still call people that break into systems for nefarious purposes 'hackers' when the term they need to use is 'cracker'. Once they use the H word, I have to move on to the next thing because I know that the rest is just hot air.
"CNN is nothing more than airport lounge music."

@ Generic User Re: responsibility
Wow... If we tried to put a quota like that on the users network folder, there would be a riot!

"no good deed (or personal initiative) ever goes unpunished."
Ain't that just the fuckin' truth.
"Anyone who thinks Thunderbird is an option has never truly USED Outlook. It's very polished and very extensible with a full API."
You can polish a turd AND call it Outlook...
You got the "piece" part correct anyways...
Re: I smell a shill
"...it took over a decade to only move 80%..."
Ah, the old tired adage, or should I say FUD, used by all the MS shill/Fanbois/Wintards.
Of course it took time you moron. They first had to consolidate all their disparate IT camps that were using a Wintel environment and then move forward with a migration. Gov is about as maneuverable as an aircraft carrier. It takes time to turn.
As for the real world, most of it is locked into Microsofts crack, er, licensing.
Re: Most linux admins believe....
"Good ones deploy on exactly what they have tested for (and obtain true support if something doesn't work as it should)."
Any true Linux Admin doesn't need to pay anyone to support their stuff.
"...and therefore is potentially demonstrating an interaction with the quantum vacuum virtual plasma..."
Is that code for "We haven't a fucking clue"?

Re: Time for another big rock?
"Time to look for another big rock..."
We just need to piss off the Fithp and they will take care of that.
I've ran into my share of "MCSE's" in the 20 years I've been in IT and everytime, it's something new that they just don't have an fscking clue to do.
Wish I hadn't been lured away from *nix by the shiny that was Novell only to have it squashed by M$.
However, as Bender Bending Rodríguez says, "I'm back, baby!"
"...it's so Microsoft focused as to be useless."
Isn't that an oxymoron?
Sounds like you Vitalwerks customers need to band together against MS.
Re: Off topic
You've been watching to much Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Only they use that sort of language when they don't understand the posessive and resort to baby speak.

There... FIxed it for you.
We have our McAfee EMM set to perform a Jail break status check on our iOS devices every 90 days. I wonder if I'm going to start seeing a lot of my users devices going to Non Compliant in the console soon...
Or is this thing just that stealthy?

The internet for what it is becoming. Once again, the money grubbing corporates have figured out a way to stiffle innovation.
The time is now for a wireless mesh internet that no one person or group can control.
Re: It is not a cancer
"I would choose this over Java a million times and then some...."
Ah, the old adage "The lesser of two weasels."
I won't be adding to Windows 'shipped' numbers.
Re: Microsoft et al are Linux's best friend...
"Unless you're a freetard, of course."
I thought I banned that term as hate speech.
Re: Open source was supposed to be secure
Visual Basic is code?!?
Stop! You're killin' me!
Re: Open source - crap code
"It is an unfortunate truth but a lot (I'll not say "most" even though I think it is justified) open source code is, quite frankly crap. Oh yes, it works. And a lot of it works very well. But if you actually look at the code..."
So what's MicroSloths excuse other than you can't look at most of the code?
All this tells me is
Open Source is "coming of age" and Microsoft should *now* be really worried.
At a family picnic one time
and one of the extended family members worked, at that time, in the same office location I did.
She starts whinging about her work PC and my wife looks squarely at her and just says, "NO!"
I'm glad she did, because I was about to go off on her as it was the weekend and they didn't pay me enough to think about that place in the off hours.
I'm just stoked...
that there is a Giles St. in Edinburgh as that is the name of my home town in IN (but pronounced the American way)...
Re: Do terrorists really tweet about their intended acts?
Now there's an oxymoron...
If countries are supposed to only by Conflict Free does that mean that no one is buying the few American made products that we still offer?
