Re: L0pht

The scariest thing is I recognised the handle prior to reading he was from l0pht, therein lies a great name.

Meh

To foil over the shoulder lookers when I'm entering passwords using my mouse I simply turn off the screen. Saves energy too thus reducing global warming. Using this offset I can let another cow fart as much as it wants.

Re: Should have used Linux

An incompetent developer will still introduce sql injection errors in PHP and MYSQL as they would do in ASP/PHP on MSSQL.

And Ubuntu. Really? Go get a decent linux environment, I remember having to spend 3 hours configuring PPP from a shell to get my dial up modem working in linux. That's using linux for real.

We need to talk about desktop virt

David 39

Joyous

Our virtual environment is used in a different way.

We have a 14 machines that just sit there and process data. Nothing more. Justifying using this in a desktop environment is near impossible.

14 machines, keyboards and mice taking up valuable office space and power.

Virtualisation resolved all our issues. We have vdi configured and ready to go making deploying a new machine a sinch. 2 mins was the last calculated time.

With the 14 machines already in use, I have a further 2 for accessing legacy data in sage. This data is rarely accessed and prefer this not to be on the desktop of the head bean counter. Connecting is no problem and running the application is as stated by them "easy peasy".

Another 2 desktops saved.

All these machines run XP 2GB Ram and 20GB Hdd.

No issues. until the server falls over. Then I lose all 16 machines until I can resolve what ever issue occurred.

But I won't be jumped up and down on as they aren't business critical.

We did look at running our servers in a virtual environment. But If the server running them did fall over..... I'd be in a place I don't want to be. So our server and day to day desktops are good old fashined kit.

A nice comprimise.

"We are aware of the suggestion that census data has been accessed. We are working with our security advisers and contractors to establish whether there is any substance to this"

I'd speak to people who know what they're doing, if these guys were any good, it wouldnt have happened in the first place.

But on the plus side spam 419 emails should effectively stop when this is released on piratebay

UK.gov opens Red Tape Challenge regulation-slash website

Badgers

To Make life good again

There should be legislation in place that allows me to safe guard my belongings

If, for example, some toe rag is in my house uninvited and trying to make off with my TV I should be allowed to do what I want to that person, and not be arrested/sued.

If the toe rag cuts himself on the window he just smashed to enter my property I should not be liable.

If I stab (not kill ) him whilst he is tieing up my family and threatening violence, I should not have to answer to anyone.

To much bullshit protecting the bad in this country.

Why not

Build the data centre in the artic. Then use this "spanner" tool, software, or persons to collect a seal club it to death and then cook use the recycled heat and then feed some hack that sits there monitoring the software/hardware/seal population if and when the data centre gets too hot, this will also help combat that mass boom in polar bear population.
