Why bother? There's still a few square miles of Earth not yet buried under all our crap. Not many though.

Yo, storage geeks: Fancy a bit of scale-out fun time?

Interfacing

How fully featured are these appliances? For example, could I use one as a target device for testing SNMP based systems management tools, would MIBs work properly without the physical tin being present?

Wake Up Call,,,

Yes the IT industry. The ENTIRE infrastructure needs redesigning to be inherently secure and by that I mean everything - protocols, hardware, software, all of it.

Wake up call...

I think the point that everyone is spectacularly missing is that the entire IT industry needs to rapidly get its shit together.

The recent spate of high profile security breeches just prove what many of us have suspected for a long time - the entire framework upon which online security is based is fundamentally flawed and its high time the big brains out there came up with a radical new approach to protecting networked systems, and I don't just mean employing increasingly illegible "Captcha" boxes.

San Francisco BOFH must cough up $1.5m

Ikoth
WTF?

How does that work then?

"Hello? Mr Bank Manager? Oh, Hi. Look, I've got into a spot of bother and need to borrow some money please." "Weeeellllll, about $1.5M should cover it". "Monthly income you say? Hmmm, well, I don't actually have a job at the moment, but my outgoings are really low...Hello...? Hello...?"

Joking apart, how does someone earning, what, £40k ish? pay a fine of $1.5M?

PARIS = PARIS

Why not embrace recursion and just call it PARIS which, or course, stands for:

Paris - Alcohol, Recumbent In Sugar

Kind of sums up your patron too...
