Coffee all over my screen. And now I have to go watch the lego version again.

It *is* default!
However, if you are delegating control over a bucket within an account, you end up with some herp-derp for whom "IAM 101" might as well have been in Minoan Linear A who, after 2 failed attempts at secure access, just sets public on their bucket.
This is a ... I believe in the UK the favourite term is now "backstop"?
Quote: "This, Yahoo! says (citing agency officials), culminated in a 2012 incident in China where 30 agents working for the US were caught and executed.
The CIA does appear to have lucked out when it comes to Russia. The Intelligence Agency ring fences its Russian activities and the report states that intel chiefs were quick to harden up its Russian communications channel at the first sign of trouble."
Because for the CIA the Cold War never ended and there is still a Soviet Union bugaboo - instead of China. But hey, they already own all manufacturing, the tech bigwigs catch a cold when China sneezes, so I guess they recognised that that horse has bolted.
I deal with this stuff every day and while I'm not quite in the "hot garbage" camp, Atlassian software is like "there's some good stuff screaming to be let out".
The problem seems to be that it all should be torn down and rewritten, instead they just add yet more layers of enterprisy Java/Tomcat/Catalina.
Their QA is absolutely atrocious, I've had to deal with two showstopping regression bugs between *minor* version upgrades just in the last 2 weeks. Rollback without also rolling back the home directory and database is largely a lie (the supposed ability to do so is documented as "should work, no worries").
Functionality that used to be or should be built-in is increasingly outsourced to the marketplace - where you pay extra to third party vendors or Atlassian.
In 2018 you still can't execute fully unattended automated installation ab initio. The convolutions I - and others on the Atlassian forums - have had to do to get around this (especially for cloud deployments of the server products) are just frightening. Sometimes I look at my Cloudformation templates and weep.
Bugs and badly design configuration makes encryption-in-transit and at-rest a nightmare to set up. Another "forget about automating this".
OK, so maybe it *is* hot garbage.
Can't put my finger quite on it, but the downward trend seemed to really start - and accelerate - when they went public.
There is one exception: I love Bamboo! It kicks Jenkins' balls, it kicks CodeBuilt/Deploy/Pipeline to the curb. I've evaluated the lot like 3 times in the last year (there's a lot of pressure to go Jenkins) and every time I've come up with "out of my cold dead fingers".
*sigh* my dream spec Athena comes in at AUD4K. Still less than a similarly configured Dell though - and you can't even *get* a Macbook with similar specs.
It looks like they don't deliver o/s or am I DST-change-addled and blind?
EDIT: alas, indeed:
Entroware currently ships to the following territories using DPD:
United Kingdom (Shipment service: next working day for UK mainland)
Republic of Ireland
Wish I could disagree - I mean, you'd expect that with increase in features and capabilities comes a cost in increased resource usage.
But man, VS just has crossed that line into ginormous bloat, with much of it getting in the way.
I look at my daily work with IDEs and find that what used to be all VS is now VSCode or Jetbrains (who wisely make you use a different more stripped down IDE for each language/framework even if they're based on the same underlying "engine" as opposed to one massive Swiss Army knife from hell).
I used to maintain my Jetbrains sub for access to Resharper and a little bit of the IDEs. That has now pretty much flipped and it's all about being able to jump between PyCharm, CLion, Ryder and Webstorm. Horses for courses.
... the female night elf has been doing a jiggle-bounce animation in idle mode every 30 seconds since 2004.
(and has a dance that certain people still get up in arms for, even though it's directly based on that of a French singer, said French apparently far more laissez faire about such things).
I can see Alibaba moving into the upper right quadrant by sheer size once it becomes quasi-mandated within China and they even start pushing the other 3 out of the country.
But would any Western organisation seriously consider using Alibaba? Whatever you may think of Google "Do no evil", AWS "Steamrollers R Us" and Microsoft "We CAN change our spots, honestly, meow!", shoving your data into the PRC just seems a step too risky. Regions outside of China notwithstanding.
That said, how much do you trust the US-based Big 3?
NSA or PLA... decisions, decisions...
I have used it extensively in Visual Studio for C## and Python and it works well. The again, for all I know it's things like ReSharper (which you mentioned/linked) which makes it actually usable? I've not run without for so long, I'd probably be paralysed without it.
That's not a good thing, it just occurred to me... I should mend my ways.
Am I missing something about all these S3 fiascos?
Just how do you DO that? You have to actively make a bucket or object public, S3 will bitch at you "are you certain?" and then it constantly has a reminder/warning "blabla you have public buckets/objects, this is not secure, you may want to reconsider blabla".
That's in the console obviously, but frankly I have the nagging suspicion that those who commit these blunders would be out of their depth using CLI/SDK anyway.
So, just how incompetent are your cloud monkeys that this happens all the time? Is that a rhetorical question?
Yes, your static website has to be public, but does anybody use that for anything but error failover with a few HTML pages?
Bucket policies, IAM policies... there's bloody wizards that do hand-holding for the CLI/JSON impaired!
Just don't get it.
I'm curious as to how they would do that. It's a 5 line user-data script to add a custom account and add that one to sudoers - and user-data is run as root.
Not that I'd be surprised to hear what they do to prevent that - can't even bake your own AMIs, they filter all user-data, *prohibit* user data (or cfn-init/cloud-init)? I'd love to see their IAM profiles :P
How that is to ever lead to a culture of innovation (as opposed to copy-catting) is beyond me. But as long as our corporate overlords are happy to have our daily tat produced by cheap and oppressed quasi-slave labour to sell it at max profit here, I suppose the system works.
I do have a baritone voice (though, until I get rid of this lingering cold, more a basso) and a friend who is an opera soprano. I wonder... with some coaching by her... and the appropriate "uniform" (short sleeve shirt with pocket protector and a tie, natch)...
Of course, I will now be humming this for the next month or so.
... however I wonder who wrote the app for VicEmergency? Seeing as that one is quite good and up to date.
Several times during last weekend's heatwave my phone went off with a warning before the icon showed up on the website of CFA farcebook/twitter (and yes, during those extreme fire risk days, you have every resource under sun on auto-refresh).
Seeing as how I expect "AI" and "ML" to be pushed out regardless by our masters and overlords, no matter how faulty and erroneous it is, I am always reminded of that scene in "Brazil", where a smooshed fly causes a name to be mis-identified and the wrong bloke gets arrested and tortured to death.
If you insert some corporations name in place of "China" you would easily win bullshit bingo during the conference. What's "bingo!" in Mandarin?
Another sociopathic ruler/CEO wanting to square the circle: progress, advance and be top cocky of the yard, while keeping ultimate control over information flow, the peons - and who gets the riches. Was it Robert A. Wilson who wrote "true communication is only possible among equals"?
Somewhere the ghost of Mao is laughing and Deng Xiao Ping is spinning in his grave.
Ugh, I mistype a fair bit before my first or after my fourth mug of caffeine. I presume these are just the ones they fund (sic!)?
Unless the spoofers are so thorough they also post docs, a more reliable method would be to grab a full list from reathedocs or such and correlate it? What fun!
... they wouldn't even let me on the train to the office! <ba-ching-boom>
As for showering: if I don't get my morning coffee and shower I'm not even functional. Never mind smell.
Blessed be working for a company that has a very generous WFH policy. I swear my boss is in the office less than I am! But even then it's stumble to the coffee maker, curse for the millionth time that you need coffee to be conscious enough to make coffee, zombie-walk to the bathroom for the 3 S's. Go on Mr Hyde, come out Dr Jekyll.
You could say I am NOT a morning person.
Not sure why someone would downvote you: I'm presuming you're NOT saying it's a feasible alternative to the NBN due to its superiority, but because it may be the only viable alternative, when the only other choice is NBN's increasingly lazy default of dumping you on Skymuster if they can't otherwise be bothered.
That said, Optus has a good deal if you can get it. For many of us country yokels it's Telstra's eye-wateringly expensive 4GX, at $150/month for 50(+30)GB/month. SMB tax write off, but still. When your NBN has been pushed out to dates unknown and then you find out they just cancelled the FW tower, your options are slim, with otherwise a piece of rotting copper in the ground.
Never mind the scrape-or-do-not-scrape, is this the company that is making money off selling employers whether their minions are using LinkedIn for job hunting and networking? What the hell else do people seriously use LI for? It sure as hell isn't those endless "motivational updates" by sales and marketing droids. If so, that putrid mob needs to be burned with fire!
Simon, the job you are doing, reporting on this and keeping it in the limelight at least here among techs is beyond praiseworthy. It seems the whole story has already faded out of the MSM. Not enough sex, drugs and violence for them, I suppose. (EDIT: looks like The Age now has it in the top section).
