Crikey. I'm glad I'm not trapped on a submarine with you lot.

The trick is to nod and exchange knowing looks with everyone around you.
I felt like I'd lost 20 pounds
You probably did.

I recently changed company, to be greeted by the horrible realisation that they use Notes. Do people actually opt to use this disgusting software? Or are all users in the middle of a plan for replacing it? It's just unusable!
My favourite Notesism so far: F5 to logout. *facepalm*

I think everyone's leaping to conclusions here. With good reason, because it's intuitively true. However...
What if being at risk of cardiovascular disease means that people are more drawn to processed/salty meats? Some kind of genetic mutation that kills you slowly but makes you crave meat and alcohol. Or a parasite p'raps.
Causation, blah blah. You feel me?
Re: <probably mistaken pedant>
Aha, gotcha. Needs a little 'm' though. Crikey, that article is a tragedy of units.
<probably mistaken pedant>
500NM as a force? The N is a force (Newtons), no idea what the M is. perhaps they mean it's a pressure and measured in Nm^-2 ?
And 50kg of pressure? That's just a mass, right? It's not a pressure until it becomes a force (add gravity?) and you say how much it is concentrated over an area?
However, every day is a school day, there's probably some internationally-recognised shorthand going on here. The kind that I'm kept out of the loop on. On purpose. Bastards.
OpenOffice vs LibreOffice
So what's the considered opinion of the community now? How do our two favourite free suites compare now that this new Libre version is out?
May I be the first...

It would probably avoid confusion if the article concentrated on this being an 'innovative use of an existing tomcat/other servlet container on an already compromised server to allow ne'er-do-wells to have easy web access to server content'.
Strictly speaking, is this a Java exploit? I might be reading this wrong, but it seems to me the server needs to be previously compromised so that a file is deployed. Only then is tomcat/other told to install a web portal to give easy access to the server for miscreants.
I'm guessing the ease of installing WARs is what's being used as an easy way of giving access, but apart from that, it's hardly a Java exploit?
I could certainly be wrong, not many details in that article.
God damnit! I was going to do this from 3D ultrasounds, but it turned out that GE ultrasound machines keep the model in a proprietary format.
And yes, I did get some strange looks from people when I told them. "Really? wouldn't that freak people out?" "Yes, yes it would"
I agree with the sentiment, outsourcing doesn't usually work (or at least we only hear about the failures and frustrations).
Outsourcing theoretically can be cheaper for the same service, because of economies of scale (they've probably done the same job elsewhere, so can shortcut straight to the good stuff) and no wasted resources (if an employee isn't on your work, they can transition onto other work, as opposed to them sitting there doing nothing or making up work).
That's the theory anyway. So, yeah. Explained.
Do you expect me to walk?
Noooo mister Bond, I expect you to fly!
