Is Putin good at playing poker?
In the sight of other men, return your Chromebook.
But, when alone, grabbeth it when you can.
Looks good, no grumbles from my side.
And Jinxter's on its way...
Enjoy The Pawn and The Guild of Thieves in the meantime.
Re: 30 Seconds to comply...
Luckily I was with someone when the lights on one end wall started flashing and a bell rang - it was just to let the site engineer know his desk phone was ringing in his office outside the hall.
Downloaded some brownware when that happened? :)

Who left a ladder precariously propped by the door (plus emergency buttons)?
Re: New version of Cluedo
But it is always the BOFH/PFY that does it...
OTOH, the game could be to discover who gets the blame...
Something like that...
Re: Not good stuff!
Gives new meaning to "Vaping Halon".
And, yup, it's a BOFH eppysode.
Re: New version of Cluedo
And I think you're on to something.
What about designing and selling an actual BOFH/PFY game a la Cluedo?
The Boss in the Filing room with the Faulty CattleProd.
Sharon in the Company Canteen with the Listeriosis Viennas. :)
The Janitor in the Stairway with the PFY's patented slippery stuff.
Re: Hasn't halon been banned or something in the '90s?
Upvoted for the BOFH reference.
And have one (sans laxatives)
So want to
sendspam them with emails saying "COME AT ME BRO"...
Cookie Monster need to review one ASAP.
While munching on cookies.

Re: I was "hacked" via RDP
I had a discussion once about the concept of doubling the time between login attempts:
start with a 1 second re-try and double the time for every wrong login attempt. Has anybody ever implemented this?
That's what a good BOFH would do
WITH THE ADDITION of a "bandwidth throttle" the more failed attempts, the more that specific IP or connection will be throttled.
Hopefully the attacker will give up in despair after increasing timeouts and a connection that get progressively slower.
Come to think of it, if it was possible to do a GPO where your timeout increases the more incorrect passwords you type, I will implement it most definitely.

Re: MS did it with NT too
Used Teardrop against a Win95 PC - and the hard drive crashed when I teardropped it.
Techie using the PC was very upset, but he did not know who b0rked his PC.
Will "ohsh**ohsh**wegonnadiewegonnadie" also work?
"Documentation walked..." and what then?
Maybe you got interrupted by a packet storm?
Re: Confessed? Really?
Intermittent problems are the shiz, yo! Gotta love these as they make you swear for hours on end.
Remote site phoned early one morning, network was down. Toddled all the way over (1hr drive)
Had to play the usual game of "Hunt-the-Terminator" but found none. Went round the site a second, then a third time.
Found two terminators hidden neatly into a recessed conduit in the floor, and an extra T-piece. Disconnected the coax cable from t-piece, plugged in the one terminator, added the "spare" T-piece and second terminator to the other cable and voila.
I'm just glad coax networks have gone the way of the dodo.
Had a rogue D-Stink device on my network doshing out DHCP packets.
The problem got resolved when the wrong firmware got uploaded to it by accident.
Botswana's practically next door to us.
Mebbe I should start my own scamming biz up....
And scam the ne'er-do-wells should they land here....
Can a 'coon (dead or fried) have Linux installed on it?
Re: Are you SURE it's dead?
Upvoted for that reference!
I have no prosthetic limbs yet.
"History by mimic has not, and presumably never will be precipitously but blithely ensconced. Society will always encompass imaginativeness; many of scrutinizations but a few for an amanuensis. The perjured imaginativeness lies in the area of theory of knowledge but also the field of literature. Instead of enthralling the analysis, grounds constitutes both a disparaging quip and a diligent explanation."
Whut?? 0 out of 100 for you, then.
Maybe I can *cough* "distribute" a miner on my company's laptops/servers etc... *cough* and blame it on an unknown ne'er-do-well when the dastardly miners are uncovered...
Mmmm. Must be the BOFH inside me.
Anybody who managed to haxx0r a Dell Sonicwall yet?
Supposedly to be very secure.
Re: Big Red Buttons are irresistible!
Obligatory request for a Sir Pterry icon.
Else we'll send Detritus, Granny Weatherwax and Foul Ole Ron over to have a nice talk with youse about that icon we've requested.
That's an easy one to fix. Unauthorised equipment ends up in the bin.
Had a rogue DHCP server on my LAN once.
Found it was some sort of D-Stink P-O-S which somebody's using as a switch.
It got the wrong firmware uploaded somehow, and ceased to function.
Do you think Monty Python will do a dead horse skit?
So glad I decided not to use their products anymore.
Re: End game
Terminator and Skynet?
Postman Pat and his black and white c*t...
I dimly remembered that Clangers was also aired on our local SABC back yonkers ago when I was a wee tyke...
We are Borg.

Here in SA you will need to wait for an attendant to come and fill your car for you.
They have some sort of electronic key fob on the pump which need to be triggered by its counterpart which the attendant have on his person. (Think it is meant to stop theft of fuel).
So you rock up, attendant activates the pump, and fills you up, then you pay (or drive off if you want to feel lucky). To counter that sort of thing, all fuel stations have cameras all over the place.
And currently we're paying over R15 for a litre of engine juice. :(
Re: Entering New Zealand
ISO-whatever's just for show. You never know what things are really happening behind the scenes.
Will say it out loud should a product be shoddy.
Re: Leave a little present.
The comment about cabbage - reminds me of the time when we scored a lot of free cabbage leaves from our local shop.
Fed it to our chickens who loved it - but the pong when they decided to do their No2 business was another matter entirely.
Never did it again.
Re: Leave a little present.
Bonus points for evacuating the entire building by the power of your air biscuits. :)
"Should you need private meeting spaces, utilize the 4th floor. DO NOT TOUCH any items or objects you might see around the space, including signage, TVs, chairs, and tables."
Now I'm really curious as to WHY.
WebExtensions can now hide tabs as well as manage the behavior of the browser when a tab is opened or closed, so you can expect to see exciting new ...

Microsoft slipping its tentacles into every pie all over the world.
