@KJ: I did the switch to DuckDuckGo when google stopped honoring the '+' properly in their searches. Haven't looked back. I get a small pick up when I type a search into my Chrome browser and end up at someone else's search engine. Cause I know google knows every time I avoid them and that's a good thing.
I do miss google's type-ahead feature though. Saves me tons of keystrokes. (on the other hand, perhaps that's because the already know too much about me...)
Do no evil, indeed.
My head hurts from reading all of these posts. Not from the specs and stuff because at work I have built and operate 3 ESX/vSphere servers running 25 guests, 3 hyper-v boxes running who knows how many guests (it's the dev teams junk), two XenCloud hosts and one KVM host. In addition we are building an OpenStack cloud with KVM and XEN hypervisors.
And yet i have absolutely ZERO desire to do anything like this at home. My MacBook Pro (albeit with Virtualbox and VMWare Fusion installed but rarely used), my wife's MacBook, the den's super old lampshade iMac and the AppleTVs do everything I'll ever need. I guess I like to do other things when I'm not at work like garden, take the kids to the park, scouting (boy and girl), drink beer with the neighbors around the fire pit, shoot off fireworks, hunt and fish, etc. But that's just me apparently.
1. set authentication on all network printing. That is, once you hit OK on the print dialog, another dialog comes up in which you must enter your network (or printer specific) credentials. This is more often used to prevent color printing or to audit printing for chargebacks but can be an effective privatisation tool as well.
2. Even better, set up printers so that the job queues but won't actually print until the user shows up and types in their unique code. The next job won't print until that user comes and types in their code. If it's a private print job, stand there until it is complete and collect your work.
Easy as that and common in many organizations.
Not gonna happen, so get over it. For one, who has them that is not using them? A lot of the Class B holders are using the allocations internally. Can you imagine the cost involved in a 65,000 IP migration?
But even that's a failed argument. The fact is that there are very few entire B classes that are owned privately. If every non-ISP/Telecom Class B block were returned today it would amount to less than 5% of all available v4 B blocks and would be allocated in fewer than 6 months.
So what's that supposed to fix again?
Are you effin serious? Norm Coleman was the one who spent untold millions of out-of-state dollars trying to turn his obvious loss around and in turn cost the state untold millions on a wild goose chase. Minnesota could certainly use that cash now.
Man, a state that gave us Governor Jesse "The Body" Ventura and Senator Al "Stuart Smalley" Franken is a state I wish I still lived in.
In which there'a video of the guy using tcpdump (what a shock!) live capture which shows his phone uploading every digit press on the phone pad, every query to google, even the HTTPS encrypted ones and even every incoming text message.
Is that enough evidence for you or are you just trolling?
I was teaching WP at the time. WP was more efficient, more feature complete and an all around better word processor on every front. The only reason WP6 ran so badly on Win95 is because MS wanted it to.
Word chewed through memory and had a binary that was nearly 10x as fat as WP so it's not really feasible that given an even playing field Word would perform better. MS killed WP because they owned the platform and leveraged it to make their software appear better.
Google "IE integration" for another example of this behavior.
Yes, OpenStack is complicated as hell, but it's getting better faster. But who stands behind CloudStack? Citrix. And who has publicly committed to OpenStack to the point of integrating CloudStack and Cloud.com code? That's right Citrix.
It's true, today you can be up and running faster with CloudStack. Tomorrow there won't be a CloudStack because OpenStack will consume it. This is not speculation; it is the words of the CloudStack team.
Is HP trying to set the record for shite CEOs? Fiorina (failed Compaq merger), Hurd (failed to keep it in his pants), Apotheker (busted for stealing from Oracle while at SAP) and no Whitman (failed Skype acquisition). It buggers the mind how that board operates.
More mind buggering is how these execs keep getting such high positions anywhere. Or is it a case of once a CxO always a CxO?
Reading comprehension fail.
Just so you know, datacenters, which this article is about, deliver power to racks. Computers in those racks then USE that power. Strange but true. The quote you used simply states that new datacenter designs are capable of delivering much more power to a given rack than the old designs. This is good because newer computers need more power in a given bit of space.
But perhaps English is not your first language so all is forgiven.
They use the same cereal box decoder ring for each encryption. Because of this they can't "know anything about files and folders" but they can still spot that template you and 10 others copied from the internet for your PowerPoint slide deck. Template spotted; 10 copies not stored.
See? Easy peasy.
Too bad for them that Cap't Crunch and I have prior art dating to the early 80's.
Hrmm. You see, my experience is exactly the opposite. I don't (ok, didn't) experience system crashes or app crashes more than once a year on any of my Macs. In fact I have a lampshade iMac G4 that has an uptime of over 2 years right now. My wife's MacBook never crashes although it's often used by my 6 year old to play some questionably coded online games. I've had a series of MacBook Pros in the last decade and have never had crashing problems.
That is until I got a new MBP last summer (2010). I used the migration tool to move my account and apps from the old MBP to the new one. After that, when I woke up from sleep (by opening the laptop) about 1 in 10 times the system would fail to return to normal and a hard reboot was needed. After about 6 infuriating months of this I was about to wipe it clean and do a fresh install when I tried one last thing: I disassociated the MBP from our corporate Active Directory domain. Life's been one sweet ride ever since. Not a single crash in 5 months of apps or OS. In fact, everything I do seems just a bit snappier. And it didn't affect my ability to reach AD resources since KeyChain happily supplies my creds under the hood without needing to be a member of the domain. If your machines are connected to an ActiveDirector domain I would suggest removing AD from your directory list and seeing if anything changes.
For the record, I am a Windows and Linux admin by day; I use Macs at home and I have one for troubleshooting the corporate network (because the Unix underneath makes AD network troubleshooting easier, go figure). I don't know if the blame for this lies with Apple or MS and I don't care. I just like the results of non-integration.
The DMZ hopping problem is particular troubling for me in attaching physical machines from different DMZs to the same SAN. However I think virtualization, especially within a good cloud, helps to eliminate this problem, even in flat network designs. Think of this: your physical hosts/node machines are connected to the private management net, the SAN net and the public net. If anyone could get access to the host machine then all sorts of nefariousness is possible. But the host itself doesn't have an IP on the public side and the SAN/management side is protected by your firewall. From the VM perspective, there is only one network connection and it's to the public network. Even though the VM is attached to the private SAN and you can console into the VM from the management side, the VM only knows about the public side and can't move data through the private interfaces. Since the danger comes from the public side, the risk is safely mitigated.
Or not. I must admit coming to this revelation while I was falling asleep last night so it may be suspect. I look forward to any corrections smarter people may have.
Just because you know a lot of big(ish) words doesn't not mean you know how to string them together into coherent thoughts.
Honestly, I read your post 4 times and still couldn't suss what you're on about and I have a background in linguistics and natural language processing...
My speedo is shot and I"m looking for a way to use on old iPhone 3G with speedo app to replace it. Much cheaper plus maps, etc. Bonus us I could play Angry Birds on my way to Sturgis.
Haven't yet found a mount or charger suitable for the purpose though.
Define "best". If you mean best at butt-humping and budget crashing, then yes, Cisco switches are the best. If you are talking about switching actual packets between hosts then your colors have been truly shown as the lackey you are.
"Oh, I work in an ISP and I know everything". Shut up. Seriously. If you want to compare dicks then here it is: I've held a CCNP since 2001, passed the R&S CCIE written in 2003 (never bothered with the lab since my company at the time wouldn't pay for it) and have been designing networks since 1995. Were you even off your mother's teat by then? I've designed, built and architected networks for Fortune 500 companies around the world. And you have done what? Oh yea, you work in an ISP. Big whoop. I eat ISP networks for breakfast.
Regardless of where you are, if you aren't looking at the cheaper and just as good, often better, alternatives to Cisco switches then I'm afraid for your career. It's gonna be tough for you when someone like me gets brought in to show you how to build a proper network with a proper budget.
In my experience, the only people who only buy Cisco are the ones who can't do it with out Cisco crutches like PVST+ and EIGRP. Learn some MSTP and BGP before you try playing with the big boys.
I was a believer for more than a decade. 2.5 years ago I switched companies and inherited a network choc-a-block with Dell switches. WTF?!? I immediately created plans to replace them all with "better" cisco gear. When budget realities slapped me in the face I was forced to re-think my biases.
Fast forward 3 years. Not that I recommend Dell over HP, but most of those PowerConnects are now going on their 5th year or more in constant service and they continue to do what they are supposed to do: switch packets. Some have up times approaching 4 years. And I've never ever had to call Dell (thank goodness) for support or replacement due to hardware or firmware issues. I used to have Cisco TAC on speed dial.
Now-a-days I look to HP also because their stuff works but mostly because of the free lifetime hardware/software support. Never needed to use it though.
but give credit where credit is due: Cisco's support website is unparalleled in all of IT. I still maintain my CCO account and use it for design and protocol assistance even when I'm not deploying their gear. And of course the ASAs are tough to beat.
I assumed there'd something like this in the ToS but couldn't be sussed to look myself.
As a previous poster pointed out, I carry most of my music with me all the time, why would I need a cloud to help me get to it. And REALLY why would I want to give any company access to my "files"? Especially companies known to bend over and smear on the vasoline while flashing a "come hither" look every time someone mentions the word subpoena.
I use gmail only because it gives me a previously known email address should somehow find my self suddenly unemployed. Even then I touch it only with rubber gloves and a ten-foot pole. To put my data somewhere the corporate mafia could get access is to be poked by a red hot poker up the jacksie. No thanks.
