That'd be once interesting trace route...

Ugh... don't even get me started. Network jiggery pokery was never something I liked doing and other than turning it off and back on again, no-one at work wants to touch our dev network. Not even the actual people employed to poke such networking kit.
That said turns out L2 network hubs with SPF ports aren't that expensive on fleabay (one of these and a SAN array is on my christmas/birthday list for the 'home' server)
Best I've managed is to firewall all traffic (turns out to need to configure a whitelist before blocking all traffic on specific ports... who'd've guessed?). Embarrassing phone call later and a quick talking the tech through how to kill the rule and all was right with the world.
Nowadays I've my server at home warming the attic so it's a much shorter walk.
Couldn't they have just asked the patients to grin and Barium?

So not amanfrommars then....

I thought it was two nails, half a tennis ball and a piece of string?
Re: apple keyboard
You do, it's next to the 3.
neither does the French...
No braces for you either (having bought a mechanical keyboard for £20 with the French keyset I later noticed this). But then you can always set a keyboard to a different keyset and let muscle memory figure the rest out (ISO for the win and all that. Down with the ANSI standard and it's silly small enter key)
You're not allowed to send pictures of Richards? My father would be mildly disappointed.
Would the ban also include fruit based spunge pudding?
108409.2875 lengths of a double decker bus +/-...
Fixed that for you.
It just wanted to live upto it's name...
Send the science it's done? No... it wants you be curious as to what's it's done.
If want to know, you have to watch it live.
The other solution is to call roadside services. They fix n%* of call outs at the roadside and will on average be with you within an hour* (*salesbod bs, ignore as per usual).
Re: Try travelling with First Bus and their (cr)app
It got even better a few weeks ago. No more frustration at peak hours. The damn thing shat itself regardless of the time of day. Then the app crashed. And would continue to crash until I uninstalled it (yes I forced it stop first and all the rest). Then it went back to accusing me of no internet connection despite 4g signal, then WIFI (both brought Google up just fine).
But somehow a servers inability to work is a fault with my connection to the internet....
Yet I do it because buying tickets for my daily journeys (3 times a week not enough to justify a week rider) would cost £1.40 A day more otherwise. Or £4.20 a week...or about a pint of decent beer. I'll leave it as an exercise to reader on what I'd rather spend the money on.
Re: No sympathy
And that's on a regularly maintained and cleaned machine.....
Re: Don't need a condom.....
Total dick move.
Maybe it's a way of showing that Farage isn't a wanker?
Though with his face on a packet that's what you'll end up being if you pull that out...
There was some other method of storing data. Some kind of write once read many format in an easily read container. Though I will admit matters of scale can be an issue, and the file system has to be regularly updated. Data dispolsal can get interesting too (I personally burn mine).
It's times like this that as much as I like moving forward with the march of progress, I wonder if we lose too much in the process (no one's ever managed to encrypt hard copy once it's been created. The only other thing I can think of is if the language dies but that's slightly different and can't be held to ransom over that one)
Re: A gun is involved in every single mass shooting.
The Americans have been looking into this for years. Just look at the Milgram experiments which was trying to see why Germans were bad people(Nazis specifically) and ended up discovering the Americans are most willing to kill.
Maybe not gloryifying killing quite so much might be a good thing?
sci-fi ships were the order of the day at my first job.
Sulaco and Nostromo to name two of the servers.
Their replacements went by the names red dwarf and starbug.
No one likes the test server Rimmer though...
Re: eSIMs make so much sense
It's going to become more common again soon when BT removes geographic restrictions on phone numbers. Think having your mobile and landline ring for the same number.
because that worked so well...
I would have thought it'd be more like Openreach

For the musically inclined
Nazipunksfuckoff.us is still available. Could just be a looping video if the song.
Props to Jello Biafra and the gang though natch.
Yeah! Bring back the EEEPC girl!
I still use my second hand x200t (original battery too good for about 2 hours though which isn't so good but helped since I switch to an ssd).
It's latest all the torment travel to foreign climbs could throw at it and then asked for more.
Lovely keyboard for a laptop too.
But yes the t series is much better than they used to be (t430's track pad I'm sure was mentioned in dantes inferno, now using a t470.. much, much better) but just doesn't feel as solid.
Reminds me of the mid 90's server at the place I first cut my teeth developing in. The machine was old enough that the original bios battery was dead... and directly soldered to said motherboard. We also had to turn it off every day 'to save on electricity'.... so yes.. About 30 mins every morning wasted trying to get it's setting rejigged before waiting for it to start up then finally setting the right time in the OS.
Another company had a batch of new servers for email but was too tight to invest in the new software so they sat idle for about a year and half before enough other things died (like UPS's) for new rack and UPS system. Servers ended up being used for a VMware cluster.
are you thinking what I'm thinking Pinky?
I think so, Brain. But would the villains really have gotten away with it, if it weren't for those pesky kids and their dog?....

Re: Interstellar metal worms
Must recheck that short story collection I've got of his then. It's probably in there...
so let me get this straight..
Sucking it up makes it go nuclear for a few seconds... realatively speaking.
How long of you were watching a tad closer?
You mean they've gone about it arse about face?
Though usually it floats to the top...
the ejits in your family are going to throw your 'rubbish' straight in the skip
My VIC 20 and Amiga 1200 fell victim to this. Like old pets they are truly missed.
Re: Server 2005???
Got back and re read. Notice those extra 3 letters. SQL. So it's not the OS server software but the database package instead.
(SQL 2014+ is worth the upgrade costs alone for the awesome sauce it being for competent DBAs).
So... that cooker really could go skiing?
Re: Infringing files
Copyright no... trademark infringement instead.. yes.
Re: Caesars have proven themselves incompetent
Do none of these doors have a chain or latch to prevent external access when occupied? I was fairly certain they're a standard thing. But if the staff are circumventing these then it'd be no surprise if someone vented them for this at some point unless they announce their visit.
Re: Better than things used to be
On the flip side i have since moving house discovered that local postie and amazon delivery types are aware of my new properties outhouse. Which is also covered by 3 different cctv cameras so even when I'm in stuff keeps getting left in the bog. At least they leave it I suppose and no-one else seems to have gone for a nosy (yet). Just means we have to remember to keep the loo roll stocked up in there sinve needs must..

Not too sure, i was more hopping for beer battered cod....
How to get
Mine's the one with the angling times..
not sure which is worse...
This or Vogon poetry..
Maybe it needs experience of the human condition.. say as an android maybe? With an emotional condition such as paranoia...
I was more a fan of using 'dncornholio' myself

Top Euro court: No, you can't steal images from other websites (too bad a school had to be sued to confirm this little fact)
New internet standard...
I was thinking the same. How long before someone starts pointing the finger at the browsers or OS for allowing the infringment to take place woth such comparative ease? Or maybe it should be a new image standard that forces copyright to be embedded in the image as standard and unremoveable (or at least not easily removable) and for browsers/OS's/image software to respect the copyright automatically?
Why should the onus be on a website to put countermeasures inplace? (Especiallly when they're so easy to circumvent with a little bit of knowledge) ?
Though i can see it being a privacy nightmare on the flipside.
No simple solution for this one. And that's before you consider differences in international law.
Re: "Alt-right moron"
Is there such a thing as the alt-left? Just set the brain meats going as a thought for the day.
And yet we have El presidenté...
not a religious lot then...
Surely they should have weighed in on tabs vs spaces... much more relivant to the audience.
Even the local nutter protesting against common sense?
Re: It's raining
By this point you need a wetsuit, and possibly informing on where to locate a paddle...
Maybe they can save money by making the stag party to get to work like the rest of us? ( i often see one of their double deckers doing the ring road up here).
Re: I want to believe..
What do you mean theres no magic anymore? Have you not used wifi?
