Spyware

Why the hell are you using that piece of creepy spyware??? A bit of convenience? loads a bit faster does it?

A few years ago there was this concept called "spyware". Google chrome fits that description perfectly, but OK maybe it does'nt matter when its big benevolent mother google ?

That 8TB Seagate MONSTER? It's HERE... (You'll have to squint, 'cos there are no specs)

Smartypantz

hitachi versus seagate

I have a bunch of KVM virtualization servers on pc hardware running 4 mirrors each, comprised of one hitachi drive and one seagate drive. I havent got the details on them at hand (cant be bothered to fire up the VPN, log on, tjek the drives...... to much like work on a friday night :-) ) they are a couple of years old (1 TB drives). My observation:

Seagate drives are failing like crazy, hitachis just keep on running! Sad about that really, hopefully WD puts their acquisition to good use!

Re: Windows security fail

Mee to.

Runnning KVM on LVM on debian for virtualisation and debian on the desktop, no worries, licensing bullshit, crippleware gauntlets, forced "upgrades" end general creepiness of one of the platforms of the great information parasites of the world (you know who they are :-))

Programming for the web browser

"the browser is the operating system."

This is the stupidest idea i haver ever seen. All the "cloud providers" keep pushing it because they want to own your data. Nevertheless it has been a pipedream from day one.

it boils down to: "we want the same amount og functionality in the browser, as in native applications. and we expect a lot less complexity" !?!?! WTF?

everyday i praise my self lucky that i am NOT the one programming FUCKING javascript for the MOTHERFUCKING webbrowsers (unlike my poor colleagues).

Luckily i spend my time in a somewhat predictable environment (sysadm, a bit of serverside java and bash+perl)

Dont trust your communication to privately owned protocols

This kind of crap will never happen to SMTP, IRC, HTTP (although they keep trying), IMAP and so on!

Gouged by cloud - but it's so convenient

Smartypantz
WTF?

The great RockNroll swindle

If the cloud is so fantastic, its amazing that we can host all our services on either KVM virtualized servers, or physical servers (for the response time critical services), all on off the shelf hardware.

Can meet any provisioning demand within 1-3 days, all for about 1/3 - ½ of the cost off any "cloud" provider. And thats just the running costs.

Do not tell me that if we suddenly bought into the vendor-pushed cloud hype, our support and provisioning costs (in manpower) would suddenly be zero.

HP Z1 quad-core Xeon 27in PC

Re: The author was just wrong

So.. the only arguments for this machine being a "real" workstation compared ti the MAC (or any homebrew) is the certification, officiel support, NBD blabla - thievery? All of it just i big scam, and completely pointless if you know how to swap a stick of RAM, PSU etc....

Ultrabooks: objects of desire but just too darn expensive

Smartypantz
Flame

Descent screen anybody ?..... helloooooo..

I dont give a flying fuck if its dual, quad or hexa core, has 4 6 or 8 GB's of RAM, or if its a 120, 160 or 240 GB SSD.

PUT THE FUCKING EFFORT INTO MAKING A DECENT SCREEN.

A laptop with anything less than 1920x1080 (preferrebly 1920x1280) SUCKS!

Why the hell should I buy one of these things for a truckload of money, if the ergonomics are more or less the same as my 5 year old laptop, and the only difference is that it opens my officesuite ~11% quicker?

Thumb Down

Optional

There isno such thing as an "UltraBook"

It is just the wet dream of a bunch of marketing assholes!

An "Ultrabook" is just what i laptop computer SHOULD be like in 2012:

decent screen, great performance and lightweight. Nothing more

WTF?

Debian

I know Ubuntu is hot shit, but +10 years at the helm of a large number of servers has firmly confirmed that vanilla debian is the way to go if you want stable funcitionality.

Users do not want "hot shit" for their basic computing needs. They want things to be reliable and constant.

Strangely, nobody seems to grasp this?
