Re: Jeremy Clovenhoof....
Presumably it just routes prayers to >DEV>NUL
So is indistiguishable from other prayer options.

"Been there, done that. (The dreaded "USN Rollback" message in the event log, along with the afflicted domain controller absolutely *refusing* to authenticate anyone not logging locally.)"
That's pretty rare though - usually a corrupt disk or something extreme. So you just set a reg key, reboot, and it will update from another DC. Or demote / promote it.
"Starting at 13:19 UTC on 10 Jan 2019, a subset of customers leveraging Storage in UK South may experience service availability issues. Engineers have identified that a single storage scale unit experienced availability issues for a subset of storage nodes, and are working with other teams to confirm the mitigation path for this issue. Resources with dependencies on this scale unit, may also experience downstream impact.
The next update will be provided in 60 minutes, or as events warrant. Last updated at 19:54 UTC"
"1/ : yes. While truth is not determined by majority vote, I find it completely absurd to believe 99.9% of climate researchers have been persuaded to join a global conspiracy promoting a fake climate change problem."
It's >97% actually: http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/11/4/048002
"1/. Is carbon dioxide really affecting climate significantly?"
That hasnt been in any scientific doubt whatsoever for at least 2 decades now.
"2/. If it is, is the cost of reducing it greater than dealing with the cost of climate change?"
The models show it is much cheaper to do something about it than to experience it.
"3/. If it is, zero carbon nuclear power is already cheaper than windmills "
Nope - nuclear power is way more expensive than renewables.
3/(sic). Adding storage to renewable energy simply adds more cost.
That cost is offset becaise because you need less non renewable and less peak generating capacity if you can store energy.
"The answer is of course that governments - and the EU especially - are not actually interested in lowering CO2 emissions."
Well they are doing quite well at it compared to most of the rest of the planet.
"Presumably they know that CO2 does not affect the climate unduly."
I doubt that they dispute science that is not doubted by a single recognised scientific institution on the planet. You would have to be a moron on the level of Trump to think that.
"Germany STILL has more hydro and nuclear power running than the UK - in the highest CO2 emissions of any country in Europe"
Germany is on 36% renewables and about 12% nuclear (The UK figures are ~ 30% and 15%). However Germany generates about 40% of it's electricity from coal - with corresponding high CO2 emissions.
"Solution: Don't allow the bad guy to take your pointy stick."
And how do you do that when he will have the element of surprise, whilst still being able to use it yourself at short notice?! If you dont have a gun, they cant take it to shoot you with. Simples.
"Sure, so where does that put let's say Swiss police?"
Gun in Switzerland are commonly from national service so the owner is trained in use and gun safety, and those guns are generally securely stored separately from ammunition. So it's really not an issue compared to selling them at supermarkets and letting any gung-ho idiot own one...
"Exchange Server, while released, cannot actually be used yet since it requires Windows Server 2019. Which is MIA while “we work through a product quality issue” according to Microsoft. This raises an interesting philosophical question: if a software product is released, but no-one can install it, can it truly be said to be released?"
Server 2019 was released and then withdrawn. So it was released. I had already downloaded it and it's on bit torrent if you can't wait. No issues using it so far.
"It is not hard, the EU has told Google that giving those apps for free is anticompetetive, so now they are asking money for them."
No, the issue was Google contractually preventing the removal of those apps or the installation of other products as a primary choice. This seems like a bit of a FU to the EU to me. And those tend to come with a very large bill attached.
"Surface sales were up 16 per cent year-on-year, equating to $625m more than it sold in the prior year. El Reg estimates that Surface turned over $1bn a quarter."
So why on earth would they cancel a single device range that sells over $4 billion a year and growing?! Not happening imo.
Every CxO and senior manager wants a Surface these days. No one wants an Ipad anymore as they are largely seen as tools of those without a real job that just read emails.
"If it was just storing settings in os drive folders, no problem, even in Documents. I've got multiple apps storing log files in them, sometimes 100s of megabytes of them, thumbnails, temp files and all sorts of other non critical shit I don't need "
None of that gets put in My Documents though. It's all in various folders under AppData. Or under \ProgramData\
""Roaming" will get copied to other machines that the user logs into when on a domain that supports roaming profiles.
"Local" and "LocalLow" aren't copied to other machines and in many cases aren't backed up either. Eg these are where Temp really lives.
Thus Roaming is user-specific settings and data, and Local is settings and data specific to a particular machine and user - eg cache.
Plus there's appdata for machine-specific but not user specific settings & data.""
No, the above are subdirectories of AppData. And are not under "My Documents".
"I think I'd load all that kit into a car and park it somewhere in the expectation that it would be found - and I'd run a second operation a lot more carefully in another location."
But probably not staying by it until caught. And probably not leaving embarrassing details of previous such attacks on the hardware in question.
It's been like something out of a Pink Panther cartoon. Incredible ineptitude.
"Companies will decrypt bitlocker encrypted drives for $."
Not without the keys they wont. Read what it actually says
"This only applies in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 on SafeGuard BitLocker Client 7.0 and SafeGuard BitLocker Client"
"as long as we provide the password or 48-digit recovery key."
