Questionable but legal.
The real question is why those loopholes aren't closed at faster rate ?
They most probably benefit our EU Govts ... otherwise they would have done something about it. The only thing we see is a wee bit of public outcry followed by sod all.
Christian Knorst of Pinsent Masons
is probably part of the NSA ring.
European IT dictated by the USA-NSA is a lot better than EU IT dictated by EU because ... ???
Don't we have ARM & Linux in Urop' ... can't we set up foundries and get all the grey matter that went on working for the yanks back ?

Woahhh you had to go back 2 years ... a backup in good order would have been much more adequate.
1) Your company backed up corrupt data ... that can happen but going 2 years without checking its consistency ... that is bad. But at least you have learnt your "Lesson 2" which makes Lesson1 a moot point.
2) Before doing something very sensitive make sure you have the proper procedure and equipment at hand. Usually in HA things come in twos ... at the very least .. so test things before going commando on the production line.
I would add
3) Old backup may be completely useless when they have not been migrated. I've lived such an example where the servers went from x86 to Sparc and the application from C++ to Java ... good luck with finding a 20 year old server in working condition ... may prove extremely costly when data retentive lawyers kick in.
On that point lucky for you the backups agreed with the current firmware/hardware on the switch.
If you still manage to get one
... buy a hot air soldering station and IR preheating plate at the same time, there may be a shortage of those after Xmas.
Typical Google nonsense.
You may ban all derogatory comments, provided there is a way to do so.
But, not letting people say they think Google+ or a YouTube video sucks won't make them stop thinking it sucks. And that may even force them to be smarter in order to crack that wall of yours.
Google : begging for attention
OOOh that must be killing them !!!
Google may love Apple kit but the only thing Apple loves is selling its kit ... they can't care less about their customers, unless there is a class action they won't replace your iPod battery let alone provide you with a tool.
Google let's say you are not worthy ... so shut up or they will get a restraining order. You won't be allowed anywhere near an Apple Store & your IPs prevented from connecting to their online version.

PS : Google your chrome browser for OSX is a real piece of dungware.
Why would you let LinkedIn access your emails in the first place ????
So IT not that
very very more better in the sub continent.
Re: run out of cats?
Mavericks ... yuck ... Croydon or Hull would do nicely.
Total amount of
time wasted installing or reinstalling your OS.
Apple 2 hours.
M$ 2 weeks.
That'll pass ...
remember the times
- when passengers of animal-drawn carriages had epileptic seizures induced by the sunlight strobing through trees planted along the road,
- when kids were not supposed to stay more than 1 hour in front of their Atari 400 for the same reasons,
- etc etc ...
They'll put the usual warnings to cover their arse and no one will ever complain again:
"The use of iOS7 requires Apple approved optic nerve & inner ear"
"Extensive usage of iOS7 may cause ... --followed by 400 pages of unpronounceable syndromes -- but most of all if you can't stomach our latest iOS you are not worthy."
Nothing new here
after all politicians are just dicks.
I supported Oracle
until force fed MS SQL and now I don't give a flying crap ... it's just a DB and given the necessary amount of RAM to fit a selection of tables I don't see the difference.
Testing that is.
That is where VMWare should be containered anyway : testing !!!
I would not dare running a production environment on that piece of tool.
This is about to change ...
Wait for Apple to unload the iPhone 5S*** &5Crap at $100 a pop because, aside from the 2 stooges on Regent Street, no one bothers.
Even at that discounted price they'll probably make a profit !!!
Now we have the brochure.
Can we have a peek at the software to fact-check that commercial pamphlet ?
I'm sure the sales person got carried away ... as they always do.
Re: All well and good.
But before going belly up the 3rd party will manage to send licensing costs trough the roof.
How many things that were at one point quite cheap are now a luxury ... starting with water ... just because the 3rd party lured you into thinking that watering your garden from the tap would be cheaper than having your well fitted with modern plumbing.
10 years to notice. UK.gov should blacklist itself.
I worked along with the awful lot : ICL-Fujitsu, EDS (now HP) and Cubic Transportation Systems for the OysterCard implementation back in 2002.
I never had and never have seen such a gathering of incompetent money wasters.
A $100 bn Cloud ...
The cloud : fail once fail everywhere !!! Amazon demonstrated it not that long ago. Lesson learned ???
Cloud vendors are like bankers : they are supposed to take care of your most precious belongings, you know how it turned out with bankers.
Migrate before ...
When is the last time someone did something before it's too late ???
There is no point in migrating something that runs fine to Win 7, the difficulty and costs will be the same migrating it to Win 9 or X.
If you add energy matters ... an XP PC will run on 85 W a Win 7 probably needs 120 Watts ... when a Celeron 700 MHz Win 98 25 Watts ... and frankly the less crap users can run on their PC the better.
A patent for a set of rules ...
"So now kids don't talk to strangers" TM
New patent from TFL OysterCard Rules : Swear while you swipe. Anytime you swear whilst swiping Boris gets a penny.
even your DNA ...
to protect my data ... well DNA tends to be leaked (pun intended).
Spend 1000's to save 100's
sure time is money, but implementing such a tiering may be time consuming and the horsepower and brains to do that costs money as well. Plus your DB may be locked because some old fart is updating their eerily old data on a very slow cassette tape.
Add that moving data back and forth may well end in losing it to a "I did not consider that potential failure" ...
I'm sure adding a faster disk array to an existing storage pool when filled up is more efficient ... so just dimension your storage for a 6 month period so you can enjoy the benefits of newer and faster tech for your newer data ...
1.3 1.4 2 4 5 6 what a turd ... after almost 20 years they finally introduced EJB 3.0 where you don't need to do all the tedious work to get a distributed object ... hardly !!!
Whoaw what an achievement, Forté Inc. had that in 1990, Forté was acquired by Sun ... and all those tossers could not even make a proper Java middleware out of the superb product that was Forté 4GL. Thinking that those Java turkeys are now an "industry" standard makes me sick.
The tablet effect is quite real
A tablet is the ultimate gizmo in the bludger's attire, right ahead of smartphone, people will always brag about the amount of (pretend) work they can now achieve on their tablet. Truth to be told most of computer users achieve sod all.
Apple just "happens" to have some classy visual designs and a very carefully designed pricing policy that makes their products a wee bit expensive but within reach of your already maxed out credit card ... which makes them even more desirable.
Plumbers not Coders
Govt should be investing in training plumbers not IT, it costs more to get a plumber than to get a code pisser.
But I need a shower unit more than I need a NHS IT system coz my GP does not need one to diagnose me.
-- The quality of IT candidates in the UK is extremely high and often underestimated --
And that is why we have some of the most brilliant and costliest world class failures.

He must have been bored to death in his complex.
- It's my patent !!
- No it's not !!
- Duh it is !!
Time to put the vindictive kids to bed.
Did Greenpeace used
a sootie powered computer or a pedal powered one ???
The Java Paradigm knock off
Ama-zone cloud : designed once fails everywhere.
I know bugger all about their design but I'd assume, to cut costs, they copied-pasted their zones (infrastructure, hardware, hypervisors, OS & software). Ooooh shit-ngle point of failure.
Hacked once hacked everywhere.
May be some are happy to (help) see them fail. Ooooh Pooh again.
Hope they'll choke
to death on the patent bulimia.
From progressive they all turn conservative, the only thing they are afraid of it someone else making monies out of one of patented snippets.
That demonstrates only one thing : innovation is not the aim (money is).
No 80/139/445 port
Total isolation is good too. And leaving the PC switched off is even better.
Luv it. Ready made excuse to do nothing on the job today ... and tomorrow .... and ...
Why not suing the car's manufacturer
as well, for wrongfully shaping to the side of his car.
