What planet is that?
I hope there is someone on that search mission who has fscking system diagram of all of this!
Microsoft likes complexity, in particular complexity that is there not to help the user, but to befuddle him and lock him in. On one hand, functionalities may be split over several packages to make upselling possible. On the other hand, features you really do not want may come pre-packaged to embiggen the product. That makes systems hard to think about and to design properly.
And then you connect all this to the Internet, which is frankly riding the devil. Why is that? Occupy Babel explains..
Obviously public transport also hurls insults at you (whether you outside or inside said transport) and additionally runs stress tests on suspension, brakes and steering wheel hydraulics of the transporting vehicle. It's much more versatile!

Clearly, if it's (2) then rolling back to earlier versions and moving to a serious hosting environment that is not the weakest link in the chain may re-normalize the situation.
I seriously hope they didn't ENCRYPT password with TrueCrypt instead of HASHING them in an irrecoverable manner using "openssl passwd -1 -salt $SALT $PASSWORD" then putting them into a RELATIONAL DATABASE!
It's time to put a fork in it.
I regularly hear Bad Things and Possibilities Of Tuning.
And SSL/TLS is a security & management nightmare which should be deprecated ASAP, not enshrined in the next generation of protocols.

The Texan Free Confederacy will NEVER follow your DC Muppet, punk! We didn't lob a few 100 Megatons at the southern tip of Manhattan so you can start it all over again!!
And even those "misdeeds" were mostly down to the hoi polloi still believing Britain had some sort of empire to exploit instead of finding itself a rainy resourceless island exhausted by wars and fake money.
Just like today, only less bad.
Contemporary society : I want everything, I want it now , it has to be easy, it has to be free.....and most importantly I don't want to have to be made to think....
Hard times are a-coming for these. Hard times. Most will die off clamoring for free money. Which they will get in abundance...

Do you actually get a black taxi belt at the end of that kind of ordeal?
It's called the "french method". Beware.

One wants to know the details of what happened ... when winter falls and you are having an interview while firmly attached to a chair, after all.
Well, why not listen to Hillary Kerry interminably going on about Munich and Hitler. Apparently the Prince of Wales has joined the chorus in his inimitable way. Isn't that enough?
Natürlich, Herr Thomas Achtundreissig. Natürlich...
I hear "other logos" can be had in Ukraine now.
You will now get a furry Bambi in a myteriously old spacesuit that is also the cousin of Jar Jar Binks.
Space Bambi also breaks into singing and dancing with animatronically animated droids for no good reason about every 15 minutes.
How does systemd help managing multiple machines though?
Well, that kind of money sure will go towards rebuilding all those train stations suddenly discovered to be "too narrow" for the GDP-boosting new rolling stock.

Dogesale. Much data. Such veracity. Very blackhat. Wow.
Hint: If you are unaware, this is one of the major reasons crop prices are so high and as corn is also a major live stock food, why meat prices are also high.
This and also: the purchasing power of your money is going downhill. Luckily food prices seem to no longer be considered in the CPI (or at least are covered by the lower prices of iPads), so our leaders detect "low inflation" which they intend to cure forthwith lest we remain stuck in the "recession".
Then high food prices, caused by destruction of the free market via mandates, allocations, taxes, subsidies and general disbursement of free money will be used as a pretext for more interventions and subsidies.
The ride never ends.
Actually, these were not dinos but stuff from somewhat earlier, in greater tonnage.
So how many percent of the actual fuel usage would that cover?
You have to realize the awful truth that there is no past time...
Proton Mail runs full disk encryption in its Swiss data centres (Switzerland was chosen as offering the best available privacy legislation)

Luxembourg currently tries to position itself as datacenter go-to country, in particular by passing various legislation about cloudy services. Will there be fighting in a Gallic Village?
Spokeswoman Amanda Miller broke radio silence to say eBay.com ran passwords through some sort of mystery one-way encryption, aka hashing.
Was that Wehrmacht radio "guaranteed originally from Rommel's Greif: Make a Bid" finally delivered?
She insisted the website used "sophisticated, proprietary hashing and salting technology to protect the passwords"
Also, peppering and grilling. The result is sautéed.
That doesn't make sense as you can just keep the N last hashes, then proceed as usual.
No need to encrypt or have any possibility to tunnel back from entropy land.
Changing passwords every M days is also an Antipattern. I think it originates from some obscure team working in an IBM Big Iron terminal room back when Tron was fresh.
It will be in no ones interest to let them fall.
It is in no-one's interest to splatter oneself on the pavement once the jump out of the window has been committed.
The fact that it's in no-one's interest is of no relevance.
In spite of all the crud we are taking from central planners, central bankers, lefties and Krugman or Rupert Murdoch types, the Economy is not subject to direction by fiat, in particular not by direction via money printing or acausal manipulation of metrics pulled out of one's arse.
It is a system that can be described and for which future developments can be roughly extrapolated. It has its laws. These laws WILL now develop.
For two decades now mainstream Keynesian economists have been gumming about China’s remarkable economic boom and its accumulation of unprecedented foreign exchange reserves. The latter hoard has now actually crossed the $4 trillion mark.
But this whole narrative is PhD jabberwocky with a Wall Street accent. What the People’s Printing Press of China has been doing is simply passing the hot potato by converting the vast inflow of dollars, euros and yen emitted by DM (developed market) central banks into a fantastic flood of RMB. This massive expansion of the domestic monetary system, in turn, enabled the greatest credit bubble in world history.
Stated differently, China’s total credit market debt outstanding did not explode from $1 trillion to $25 trillion in just the last 14 years because the sons and daughters of rice farmers working in export factories went on a savings binge, thereby enabling a healthy expansion of debt-financed investment.
The giant issue facing China, however, is that it is at the end of the money-printing chorus line. It has now absorbed so much excess debt from the West and thereby inflated its credit Ponzi to such an insensible extent, that even its current rulers can see the hand-writing on the wall.
In a recent speech, in fact, Premier Li let the cat out of the bag, calling China’s massive hoard of foreign exchange for what it is—-a vendor loan to foreign customers who buy but do not sell; who consume but do not produce. Suddenly, what has been ballyhooed for two decades as evidence of the Chinese miracle is officially labeled a “big burden”.
Actually, it has been a burden all along. The comrades have presided over the erection of a Ponzi of such immense and convoluted magnitude that they have no hope of unwinding it without a thunderous “hard landing”
China will become the world's biggest economy this year, overtaking the United States in GDP
The thing to understand about China is that it is not just another booming EM economy that is momentarily struggling to cool-down its excesses in fixed asset investment and make a transition to some kind of more “normal “consumer-based economy. That comforting notion represents an odd-confluence of propaganda from the comrades in Beijing and hopium from Wall Street stock peddlers.
In fact, China is a grotesque economic aberration that bears no relationship to prior economic history or any conventional economic models-–not even to the export-mercantilism model originally developed by Japan, and which has now proven itself wholly unsustainable. Instead, China is a nation that has gone mad building,speculating and borrowing on the back of a credit bubble so monumental (and dangerously unstable) that its implications are resolutely ignored by observers deluded by the notion that China embodies a unique economic model called “red capitalism”.
But when a nation’s debt outstanding explodes from $1 trillion to $25 trillion in 14 years, that’s not capitalism, even if its red. What it represents is monetary madness driven by the state.
Frankly, these are not the droids we are hoping for.
Yeah, with that talking fridge demanding money to be opened. Then the front door demands MORE money if he wants to get out of the conapt.
