Where can I get my "Coalition of the Stupid" pin badge?
Ah you've obviously just thought everyone such as myself voted Leave because Gove and co told us to.
Believe what you want but you are wrong.
"Extreme is going out of business"
Not likely, they are still making purchases to stay relevant.
Where I worked decided to ditch Extreme for Cisco (Still not sure why, our Summit 5i's lasted literally forever, Summit 48's were rock solid, our newer Extremes such as X450 went way before they had even been run in). Our wireless controllers were replaced and because Motorola sold to Zebra who then sold to Extreme, we have some Extreme branded stuff back, annoying they aren't Purple, but I am tempted to bring in some paint to rectify that.
@JohnFen Hmm I wonder if you are using a device which Lazy Game Reviews on Youtube has been playing about with?
In my youth when a UPS had tripped because of a fault, the management card screamed about an input fault. Being a PFY, I went and thought thats odd and pressed the button to reset the UPS power input without thinking the UPS itself could be faulty.
What followed was a lightshow from the 16Amp power input cable which had melted before my eyes and hoping it would retrip itself which is did shortly after. So for me its possible the UPS may have tripped but someone inexperienced might have commanded the device to try again, as thats exactly what I did and I will never ever do ever again.
So basically we are going to have peddle cars in the future (As I can't see Data acting as a trickle charge)
I thought the scan was done in the browser on the loopback address (Someone stated in the comments above), in that case I think you should be able scan yourself :P
Yeah it will need to have at least one of the character controlled AI bots will respond with ping spam on the mini map and scraming idiot down the mic every 10 seconds.
Hmm maybe because it adds weight?
Had SSD "failures" here, except if you slap power on them and leave them for a few hours almost all of them start working again.
I fecking hate SOD, I'll be off before an auditor make changes to their overcomplicated grid system again.
:O when you had the likes of HomeStarRunner, RatherGood (The Adventures of the Blode), Weebl and Bob, Foamy the Squirrel you can see what Flash allowed people back then to do.
When video was impossible Flash was an excellent tool for producers bringing media entertainment to us with 33/56k modems (Although ascii art was pretty cool from this time period as well). Like anything created back then, it could do a lot (Probably to much) and it has paid by being grouped with Java.
I'll continue ranting how less interactive Strongbad emails are now on Youtube since back in my day you had to find all the hidden clips.
"When was the last time YOUR server room was cleaned?"
Erm 2009, the henry hoover found a dead rodent which meant lots of paperwork, never again
Yeah have to agree, administering Domino is actually rather simple, once you know its not like any other mail system (I learnt from doing the courses on http://www.waresource.com/ which I found much better than the help files).
The biggest issue for me I seem to remember, was Notes would appear to freeze processing something (For instants a massive mail folder a user hadn't used in a year, Notes would need to generate the view), the user would kill via task manager and then wonder why I was whinging at them why didn't you use the Ctrl + Break Key.
What no it has hdmi? Havent bothered with VGA for years (Although we have a hdmi to vga converter just in case).
Every bloody mac that has been here before has had thunderbolt and mini thunderbolt
No I don't think you will stop people such as me moaning about Apple.
Although I had a shock yesterday, someone with an Apple mac wanted to use a projector, they had an HDMI port. I almost fainted.
Or use crusty old 79xx series phones which don't appear to be affected.
"certain to go missing at some point in its life"
That should make up for lost revenue from their lack of store items
As this had a sim card it was perfect for what management wanted and exactly what a bit of CRM software required.
Bloody charging the thing is a pain (Has to be a charger at least 2.5 Amp, has to be a specific quality cable or it doesn't charge (Amazon basics usb cables oddly we found worked perfect)), building the thing with standard MS SCCM tools is a bloody pain.
They don't want a more epensive version and with the sim card removed from most models means once people drop them they are impossible to replace with the same thing.
I feel they will just do the same thing for their student grade surface and fear someone will go Aha thats what we need.
"find all the bugs for the enterprise rollouts"
Cobblers, we still find lots of bug in the Enterprise version (1703).
People like to to yell my life is ruined on Social Media.
Not being a Mac user I'm not sure. KeePass has an unofficial port but I don't know how well that works. Any MacOSX users want to recommend?
A safe to store the book in I'm not 100% sure on, if someone breaks into the safe I think they would take everything in it including the book.
Have a thumbs up for the draw comment, yes I meant drawer.
Yeah I recommend using a standard A5 paper book to anyone I think will be confused by a password manager.
I recommend remember your email and bank passwords and put anything else in the book (As a password can easily be reset if you can access your email account)
Try to keep it in alphabetical order and use one page per site.
Stating the book is for passwords is a bit silly, if its in the home in a draw hopefully it will be missed if burgled.
Maybe they remotely locked the doors and broke the Tanoy as well?
We know who to expect on the next series of "Can't pay we'll take it away"
Personally year on year I print less and less, buying original inks for an ancient printer just doesn't make sense.
Oddly I don't find the smell or urine that nice.
Yes its called a paper book, its not convenient compared to software but actually its what I recommend to older computer users (As password software tends to confuse).
Sorry I just realised I called you old, have a beer icon.
Oh you are one of those types who can be smelt from the other side of the building.
@Ian Hmm I used to have a TP Link AC750 and it only reset a few settings each firmware update (I think it was a v2 model). The Archer C9 AC1900 has on every firmware updated told me it will reset settings to defaults and it has done exactly what it said.
As I use them as a wireless bridge (Can't get powerline working due to crappy wiring), pain in the backside to re-setup the WDS bridge.
To be fair TP-Link do regularly update their routers, but as they demand everything be reset to defaults every time I tend to get grumpy (Might be because I have some cheap one and they want to punish cheap people like me).
Netgear do still provide updates (Based on a DGN2200, however most updates break at least one management interface link and if you click it a protection mechanism kills the web server rendering it useless)
Our ancient Draytek Router though still receives updates
People with to much time on their hands.
Hangon, the script ran perfectly.
The humans inputting the data are to blame as it wasn't updated.
PFY Tea Runs, hang on to them otherwise they will be replaced with a deadful Klik machine.
We all were PFY's once, nearly killing ourselves on something electrical (Me on a UPS which decided to melt all its cables whilst sparking and not re-tripping fast enough).
Damnit we need additional conversions on https://www.theregister.co.uk/Design/page/reg-standards-converter.html to cover scoring just like this.
By default I can't find a way to uninstall Apple's bloatware.
Yeah I saw that and assumed it must be on the link, which I couldn't be arsed to click.
Simple, Nostalga and probably having a device where the hundreds of games were supposed to be properly licensed.
Probably same reason people brought the Nes mini and Snes Mini and if they ever get a Mega Drive soc machine to sound correct I'll probably get that.
If you need compensation when the connection goes down, why use any consumer ISP (Even the best service in the world can't cover you from everything). When I used to work on HellDesk for an ISP, I used think every time as I was being yelled at, if they were losing millions of pounds every second why wouldn't they spend a few hundred pound per month for a connection with backup and an SLA.
Oddly I didn't actually name the bats (There is a male bat called George).
My Rubber Mallet is lost somewhere under the false floor (Where once the rubber degrades the bastards who stole my server room have a collapsed floor for a meeting room), I would replace it, but I don't think they would kill SSD's very well.
I forgot to mention the baseball bat is foam and the hammer is an inflatable one (I'm not actually going to destroy anything those who downvoted me)
Yes but its kind of fun to hit equipment with hammers and claim you are diagnosing an issue (The baseball bat Margret got confiscated so I now have to use a hammer)
"It was completely off the network"
If it was me I would also disable any I/O ports which werent required by physically disabling them (Unsolder the connector and blank out the slot)
I tend to find Beer and Popcorn don't mix well
Oh dear lord my work mouse is discusting.
Why did this have to make me look at the damn thing, have the clean the damn thing now.
Ahead how, everythings bleeding reposted several times by the times it gets to Reddit
We were making fun of these several days ago when a Redditor spotted it.
"A meal service for the elderly even suggested its inability to communicate in the event of an emergency could cost lives"
Seriously, any such issue I would go to the nearest eletrical store and demand they sell me all their Mobile phones with PAYG sims. Have a backup plan in place when critical infrastructure goes down.
Nah, company phones that price will be an iPhones
I don't think a Pentium 2 would have the grunt for the majority of bloatware out there these days.
Edit: I am making the assumption they would like to try and leave it there for 20 years with zero maintenance. If its for reusing the container then erm maybe thats ok (Not sure how long it would last in salt water without rusting)
