Re: Dodgy behavior by Vote Leave?
Having another referendum would be a joke. What happens if we get a different result - best of 3?|

"Microsoft's DHCP is fundamentally broken and access to a Microsoft DHCP server requires a suitable CAL for every device."
They just fixed it though. And MS DHCP Server has built in features like cross location active active clustering that are way more painful to implement using anything else.
nb - CALs are also needed if like most companies you use Windows Server for DNS!
"and spent WAY LESS money on chasing after the POLITICALLY MOTIVATED HOAX called "man made climate change"
Or maybe the US could spend some of the ~ $ 600 billion a year it spends on subsidising fossil fuels instead?
"A 2016 IMF working paper estimated that global fossil fuel subsidies were $5.3 trillion in 2015, which represents 6.5% of global GDP. The study found that "China was the biggest subsidizer in 2013 ($1.8 trillion), followed by the United States ($0.6 trillion)"
"almost completely unchallenged"
So not unchallenged then.
And anyway this hut is a decoy. GCHQ and other Echelon members long since intercepted all the fibres off shore and rerouted them through a vast analysis and recording system.
"Ansible is way more powerful than group policies and can be applied to any Linux instance. How do you think administrators manage tens of thousands of Linux servers?"
Sure Ansible is powerful. But its also way way more complex to setup, use and administer. Group Policy is built in, and you can do pretty much everything from a single GUI with already there user and group based filtering.
By the way the Windows built in Desired State Configuration and Powershell already give you much of what Ansible does - so much so that Ansible on Windows actually uses those as the underlying toolset.
"Personally, I think that the web version of office 365 may well end up enabling killing windows on the desktop"
Almost no one uses that. It's like Google Craps - pretty lame. Pretty much every company using O365 installs the full fat version. Also seeing as O365 has had a good few hiccups lately would you want to rely on a web only client?
Yep, Google Cloud Slurpages is great for performance. Because no one else is using the capacity.
The are hiring lots of increasing desperate sales people that cant find anyone that isn't already going to Azure or AWS.
I have visions of a datacentre with tumbleweed rolling down the deserted aisles!
YOU might expect that but it's not the reality. Women have to take maternity leave. For men it's optional and much shorter in most countries. And in many relationships the father is not around. Also men are far more likely to return to work.
It's because women are less desirable employees in a free market. Be that wrong and / or illegal, it is also a fact. For instance because of maternity leave, childcare, likelihood of leaving career, etc.
If I ran my own small company I would be less likely to employ female employees for those reasons. They have a cost and a risk. And those realities are reflected in the market.
"It looks like it was a Century Link fat finger that caused the issue"
It guessing that Microsoft have a resilient setup across 2 providers. As one failed that's why 50% of requests did. I would have expected them to spot that immediately and also to automatically redirect to the working provider though.
