Label, Label Label
When you build a server put a label on every switch & power socket.
Also check the Mac address if unsure.

Never going to git you down
Never gonna run around and revert you
Well played sir!
unfortunately users need the internet to decode your mutterings.
The difficulty is that the bean counters don't need the internet to decode your mutterings.
I always liked the site where they put the big red button (connected to the building Emergency Power off) by the door and parallel to the racks every time they opened the rack doors the fire alarm went off and the site went dark.
Not an uncommon occurrence.
It seems the users must have responded to multiple prompts or there weren't enough in the first place.
To those that fear a HAL like experience then try one of the Alexa compatibles. Items like the Jam voice require you to push a button before it responds (and records). Guess what I have!
Its time for Amazon to add an option in the app to switch off always listen and only respond after a button press, If they want they can allow you to pair a bluetooth camera trigger button (as available for £1 in Poundland) to supplement the dot button on the device.
It would help them break into the office as well.
Or they can try to shut the stable door after this. Lets see how they get on.
Unfortunately you seem to have hit a vein of stupidity our American cousins seem obsessed with.
Any normal person on being told you are twice as likely to be shot by a Toddler than killed by a terrorist would think Holy Ship its time for gun law reform. Some Americans think "I need to pop out and buy an assault rifle".
Honestly guns should only be carried by the specially trained minority of law enforcement (if you give them to all cops being non white seems to up your risks substantially) and the Military preferably well trained as well.
There is some sense in those that target shoot or manage land having single shot arms for targets, foxes or rats.
We have had > 60 knife deaths this year and questions are being asked in the house, For you that's a bad week in Texas for gun crime.
Please lobby for gun control, your population deserve it. Now we are related by marriage I think I have to say something :)
This is not a failure of the technology but a failure of the people.
The correct response to a goat herder coming too close to the fence, is to explain to him if it does it again the garrison will be eating goat curry from now on and he won't have any goats to herd.
Then the fence stays on and those in the watchtower might get some sniper practice.
Technology is limited but if properly designed & used its very effective. Its normally far better on repetitive jobs than any human.
The proof is MK1 eyeball has been supplanted by MKXX mines & sensors in most scenarios where it matters. By the way its not a MK1 eyeball as it is one of the more evolved parts of our bodies.
Bruce is probably pointing out that people are broken but will blame technology so you have to have a plan to deal with events.
Indeed, I'm worried that so many posters & journalists are having such difficulty with the maths.
Out of 10s of thousands of faces it picked out 95 that looked similar to photo's of people of interest. Of those only two were actual matches which is the bit that needs training and further work if we can get that up to 20% then that is as good as current intelligence with no actual police work.
Its the same as having one policeman looking at a crowd turn to another and say "does that looks a little like Ronnie Biggs?" and his colleague says "nope its his cousin" or "Ronnie Biggs has less hair". It is just brushing aside the irrelevant to reduce the number of possibilities not "Minority report". Its a tool not a complete solution.
Now if the Police take the suggestions as certain matches to stop & question then they aren't doing their job properly. We know they can be more selective because stop & search has a 17-20% success rate (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43641009).
However the report doesn't say they stopped & questioned all 95 potentials, just that they used that method to verify some. So the only issue here is that the Police had more potentials to look through than if the system were perfect.
I would have thought the lefties would be glad if the Police had more targeted stop & searches using nothing more than a publicly visible face. Imagine if we could get stop & search up to over 40% success rate!
As to shooting Brazilian electricians, then one hopes if the system said loudly "no match" when he was seen on CCTV it could have saved his life. We should train people to realise that computers like trained anti terrorist officers aren't infallible and its reasonable to question decisions, we should also build it into the application.
Not entirely right - a country can specify the requirement is security sensitive and over rule the tender process. That is what the other countries do.
It happened to me about 30 years ago, I was pointing Percy at the porcelain in Schipol Airport after a longish journey and this rather attractive blonde lady reached across me to polish the wall above the urinal then flashed me a huge smile.
One of those moments that is probably subconsciously saved for when my life flashes before my eyes,
Always check the loos when going for interviews, if they are poorly used by potential colleagues, cleaned or maintained the same attitude will be taken to staff.
I used to do on site support and we always decided whether we liked the site if you turned up and they offered you a visit to the facilities & a cup of coffee. It was surprising how many marched you straight to the server room to freeze for the next 10 hours without a drink or a visit to the smallest room. If they offered you a pass for the canteen you had struck Gold!
You wet yourself laughing?
Because no one has developed reusable spaceships or simple satellites.
FFS most script kiddies could launch a working GPS system.
Well I suppose its better than Napoleonic units
Dyson UK vacuum sales in 2016 were 14 Million compared to 4 million from Hoover. So yes its likely you will see more at the council tip.
I have a DC01 that I use in the workshop and it handles anything, you do need to change the filters every 5 years at least which costs £3 from eBay. My wife's Miele clogs regularly.
Remember post Brexit we need to compete on the world stage and it looks like our exes are going to be petulant and try to make trade difficult to punish us.
Electric vehicles are the future and this is a great opportunity to make the UK a world leading original manufacturer. Who else could achieve this for us? Sir Clive has retired and everyone else has been sold off.
A UK based Dyson vehicle will help fill the void if we can't buy German vehicles, at least the emissions figures won't be fraudulent.
Lets see the Government start to build new industries now as a response to difficult negotiations rather than undercut them with EU ones.
Blair & Brown ran up the credit cards & sold the family gold to give away money on a grand scale. When the banks crashed they threw our grandchildren's money at them to save them fixing their own problems. I would have let them do like Barclays and borrow from elsewhere.
Instead of dealing with the ill feeling from successive treaties that surrendered our sovereignty to the EU they decided to dive deeper into it. They decided not to limit labour from the much poorer EU countries unlike other countries, in fact lord Mandleslime "sent out search parties" (His words not mine).
Labour are the architects of Brexit, their arrogance and failure to consider the public mood made it inevitable.
The subsequent governments have tried to cut our spending with a constant drone of "savage Tory cuts" from Labour or in English "They are spending less than we promised when we knew we wouldn't pay it back".
The deficit (the amount we spend more than we earn every month) is going down so one day we will start paying back the debt. Maybe we will finish in 70 years like we did with the war debt. Mr Micawber would be pleased.
Cameron understood we had made a mistake with open door EU immigration because it was changing the UK too fast and went to the EU to negotiate. He was told to F off by the EU.
We got a referendum in which we decided to leave and our 40 year relationship with the EU is about to end. Some of us are quite pleased. You obviously aren't and seem to have an almost religious obsession with it.
May is trying to negotiate but nailing jelly to a wall is easier than working with an alcoholic tax evoider & his mates.
Yes we could do with someone better than May but there is no one in opposition who could compete, that really is very sad.
No honour amongst thieves - shocking!
Unfortunately the one sacked will be the janitor not a manager.
There will be so many contractors escaping the Public Sector IR35 witch hunt we won't need any immigration.
they don't call him the Jaffa Jabba for nothing!
The Germans ate our cake?
I have a towel & a rape alarm, I string them along for a few seconds talking really quietly. Just as they get interested I wrap the phone & rape alarm together in the towel, pull the pin & walk away.
Only one ever phoned me back so his mate could hear it, they were laughing their head off by the end.
Thanks I went to read this and of course the advert underneath was 'new way to check PPI'.mde me laugh.
its difficult to understand why this has taken so long.
I wonder will the be effective against Dave from Mumbai? You know the one with a thick accent and very worried about the accident you had in your car recently. Or will foreign cold callers be exempt as they don't pass their ID through?
but unfortunately for Virgin they have breached the law by releasing them. they are now in a no win situation.
What they should have done is asked the Guardian & Corbyn for a retraction or they would see them in court,
It would then be plucky Virgin stopping a newspaper laying, Corbyn would have been a side issue.
just about enough to get a round at the HP pub probably.
Would of thought there was enough work out there to employ the shadow of HP after they have bought & sacked almost everyone else.
From his various statements today it looks like he has a mental health problem not a criminal one.
He admits to being a Sado-Masochist which if done right is fine. However he doesn't seem to be respecting his partner's safety which isn't legal.
He admits to having serious thoughts about hurting himself & others since he was a kid. These don't appear to be sexually based.
He has been on hunger strike and on benefits since the imposition of the order.
The order does effectively prevent him working and the public accusation he is a sexual pervert / predator means no one will employ him.
I suspect they tried to jail him, then tried to section him , failed and then deployed the SRO. The Police are now desperately trying to save face and keep him from possibly offending.
Whilst I wouldn't like women anywhere near him on the evidence presented it does seem they have over stepped the mark. They need to fix his problems not ruin his life.
and Wilkos seem to think rubbish puns and instructing you how to put the kettle on make them attractive.
toolstation for button cells at £1. They seem to last longer than the 20 for £1 in Poundstore.
I suspect Homebase will try to go more upmarket. However with competition like Poundland & the Range I suspect they will crash.
Had the same, ended up in Currys who had it in stock & were cheaper.
....Oracle has a cloud business????
Depends if its a Tory MP, in which case they might enjoy it.
Wonder why so few UK IT graduates get decent jobs when Indian graduates are paying huge amounts (half the average wage) to get an IT degree.
Nice idea and probably part of the solution but the great thing about imported labour is that it is much more exploitable than natives. For their equal wages (after expenses & stoppages) the staff will be expected to work 16 hour days.
Hardly rocket science.
Licence payers receive their license confirmation and it contains a user name & password.It remains unique & constant unless there is a suspicion there is abuse. When you want to add an item you enter your user name in the device and then log in to your account & approve it or enter the pin number sent to you by email.
Catchup only users pay a reduced license and receive a user key in the same way. Catchup users can be abroad if needed.
You can reduce the licence fee because of all the extra money Catchup is generating.
You monitor for abuse and disable / reissue item approvals as needed.
Amazon et al did all the hard work years ago.
You may not easily be able to pierce limited liability however you block the right to be a director if they misbehave, a fine for cold calling is probably enough. OK it means his Dog will become MD but its a start.
get a USB battery pack?
Should give you an hour or two to restart.
wasn't when I worked in TV sales & Service 30 years ago.
We had a customer bring in a new defective A*** video recorder with what become a common fault with the remote (when the sun shone it wouldn't work), so we sent it back to A***. We received a factory sealed new replacement and as we had already refunded the customer we put it in stock & it was sold. New customer found our service tag on the back and called in trading standards. Despite showing them documentation that proved our version of events we ended up with a £2K fine.
I'm not sure why modern shops believe they can get away with selling second hand goods as new, its blatant nowadays.
And Argos that firm that last Sunday declined my wife & my perfectly valid cards online. Next call I get is from My Bank's fraud department. They were £25 cheaper than Currys who offered my a chance to order online & collect in store that day except just before paying the bill they changed it to delivered into store in the next 5-10 days.
Amazon are hardly getting stiff competition.
strange on any windows box the help works (apart from the occasional ancient - 25 year old help file)
Help comes with pictures and is written by professional authors.
If you don't know how to use a command line program you just add a -? to the command line.
On the UNIX box no one will have installed the man pages.
Its text only written by Geeks. The Desktop manager help is a little better.
Sorry UNIX has some great features but man pages aren't one of them.
I suppose we should be grateful someone entered and won a prize as its so easy I can see why the armchair experts didn't enter.
Next time Linus & Bill won't have a look in.
Its a simple idea and it has been done partially already but a few more competitors are a good thing in such a market.
Congrats Ross - Icon is obvious
do keep up at the back.
Unfortunately in the UK sales are the vast majority of profit related activity. We need to tax them at a sensible rate so competitors aren't disadvantaged.
Most companies all think Sales are making the real money, they might understand that they have to service the customers but if they could get away without doing that then they would try, as they can't they just outsource everything.
Well if we truly have a European Union then taxation submission should be identical in all of them. If there are loopholes such as a Double Dutch Irish sandwich etc then we should disallow such things and tax fully in the UK, We shouldn't recognise tax havens used to avoid UK tax except as an artificial vehicle to avoid tax.Maybe we can 'deem' them tax evaders?
I bet to continue allowing large corporations to avoid tax won't be in the VoteRemains.EU prospectus.
Strange HMRC have spent tens of millions redefining existing contractor relationships under IR35 and losing again & again in court for peanuts (there must be a better way to recover £10k of tax over a decade). Yet when it comes to billions in turnover in the UK with UK customers being 'finalised in Ireland' and a tax haven its business as usual, maybe the international companies can afford better lawyers?
I think they meant the car colour was Black or White.Not sure what you added, (this may be what most people think about you).
I think it was a little restrictive any colour Audi can have a muppet at the wheel.

Just because you don't do research then don't assume others don't.
45 page transaction log for 8 days monitoring suggests he was either an excellent typist or spending too much time IMing the girlfriend.
Should have got a cat he would of won in the ECHR.
This model was built by native Americans.
The power cuts hit at home frequently, I was too young to work.
But nearly every night there were power cuts, we had hurricane lamps to light the house and we read books. Imagine that now the H&S bunch would complain about the lamps and most kids aren't sure what book is.
The cost of replacing meters should be part of running costs. In the decades I have owned various properties I have never been asked for access to replace or even test the meter, many of which are 30-50 years old. I can't think of many organisations that sell goods by a measured quantity who aren't required to test their scales etc on a regular basis.
Thank <Deity> they didn't call it the Drinkjet, Refilling your pint glass would be more expensive than buying a super yacht.
Funny we get in trouble if we are out by 5-10% on ROI, cost or time estimates made in the planning stage. This is before the grown ups change the scope of the project to satisfy their political needs.
