Internet engineers tear into United Nations' plan to move us all to IPv6

Re: Mapping plan

"Even my small home network is hard to configure for IPv6 (router, firwall, VM host - they can all see each other but can't route IPv6 packets successfully..)"

You should give the firwall back to your cat, and put in a firewall :)

HPE CEO Meg Whitman QUITS, MAN! Neri to replace chief exec in Feb

Re: Proud?

Scott McNealy would probably say "you can hear the sound of a garbage truck crashing into the night"...

Goodbye, and good riddance, Meg, or should I say Nit Whitman. I though Leo, Carly, and the flailing Hurd were the worst that could happen to HP.

You've eclipsed them all. And made a mockery of Bill and Dave and the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of creative, dedicated, and hard-working employees that have walked the floors of HP.

You aren't even worthy to sweep them.

Just. Go. Away.

Hewlett-Packard history lost to Santa Rosa fires

Mpeler
Mushroom

Re: How ironic

Carly was brought in to destroy the HP Way, nit Whitman is in the process of completing that. Some say that John Young was actually "the beginning of the end".

"Keysight" is neither Key, nor has any "sight". (fl)Agilent is only one of many failed remnants of HPs former glory. The profound lack of care they took of these documents is only representative of the lack of care they and their greedy manglement give to what was left of the HP Way, and what is left of the various instrument divisions, which were once innovative, creative, and great as well.

Digital documents are no replacement for the originals. Especially as they can be modified, or, worse, omissions made either by intent or carelessness.

Having said all that, I wish health and a quick recovery for those affected by the fires. Lives are much, much more important than things...

HPE sharpening the axe for 5,000 heads – report

Mpeler
Mushroom

A Faustian deal, no doubt

Nit Whitman uses her only tool, once again.

Shades of Carly firing 120 percent of HP's (then) workforce.

Any more I think Bill and Dave would rather HPE (and the rest of the shards) disappear. Goodness knows, ever since Carly ripped their full (last) names off the Company Logo, replacing them with the insipid "Invent" [that's what we DO Carly, in case you didn't notice], the company's been splitting and crumbling into ever smaller, irrelevant pieces.

immigrants?

Nope.

" threaten the future of young ILLEGAL immigrants brought to America as children".

Slave labor for big biz.

Look at the rules for immigration into Mexico, for instance. Illegals end up rotting in their less-that-5-diamond-quality prisons.....

Fire away, leftist libtards. You don't have to pay taxes to support these leeches. I do. And so do all of the other LEGALLY EMPLOYED Americans.

Re: In the long run

Try again, alt-left. Those monuments were raised by DEMOCRATS, the same party that gave you the civil war and the KKK. And, by the way, the (un)Civil War was about more than just slavery, which was the tarp thrown over the wreck that the financing of the USA had become.

And another Democrat, Wilson made a right mess of that, too. The Fed is no better than the EZB.

I've Been Moved: IBMers in same division slapped with 2nd redundo scheme in 2 months

Mpeler
Mushroom

I've Been Moved

IBM has always been referred to as "I've Been Moved", at least in the USA. For anyone with any hope of advancement (at least in the 1950s and 1960s), they needed to be prepared to move at the drop of a hat.

I had a former colleague who was asked to move; he replied that he needed to talk to his wife. Next thing that happened was that he was asked to leave, instead.

Over in Germany they say, "Immer besser manuell", roughly "always better by hand" (no comments there in the back row...). Seems Hacksaw Ginny has her hands on everyone's throats now...

Best wishes and condolences both for those leaving and those left. I expect the various shards of HP will follow in suit...
