Didn't Sir Clive
intimate that you could run a power station on a 1k ZX80?

Saw Pester on the news last nigjht, when asked when the systems would be up he replied "I've been told 4 PM but we can't always believe what IT people say".
That's disgraceful. He is CEO, buck stops there. If he can't trust his IT department and leadership then why did he allow the transfer to proceed?
1. Document and inform of the risk
2. Create a transformation project, engage a consultant
3. Create a process, and a test, then re-assess risk
4. Request budget for change.
5. Create methods and scripts for PFYs to follow an implement
6. Await sign off from 2IC to approve the potential downfall of anything AD linked for the whim of a change, then either sit back knowing you've been vindicated because he backs out, or plough on and kick off the change project, knowing that the overtime is coming, and the "I told you so" moment will be glorious.
I've worked for a small hosting company, DDOS on the servers is a nightmare, hard to mitigate, slow to fix and when you're in it it's like being drowned with screaming customers who do not understand that no matter what they do there's nothing that can be done that isn't being done.
I've used FP for years, and they're no worse than the other small providers I use, I'm in no hurry to move my domains away from them based on a DDOS and a few migration issues, those customers of mine who have complained I've explained the situation to and offered to move them to other provision but with the explanation that such action is not a mitigation against re-occurrence.
Hopefully FP will put better plans for communication in place and better mitigation against future attack and maybe spread the DNS around a little more, and publish a statement showing their diligence and what they have improved, and it won't hurt them too much, as it stands today I'm not moving my domains away, about 60% of mine are with them.
Indeed the older cards do support pro. I've had mine ages and for me the best thing is that you can have a mifi running, and with a couple of photographers covering one event the images are backed up as they are shot. I seldom sent RAW that way but to know that if your camera was stolen that the images were safe was a big bonus.
