Re: Long ago.
that is so useful. Back the day a co-worker set up two servers facing each other so the cd/dvd drive with a rubber snubber glued on could hit the reset button of the other. Beat a 4 hour trip and an hour plus; going though security after a problem was noticed and logged

The joy of M$ Paint. also funny watching managers try and copy your work and do the same "highlights" in a PowerPoint presentation

The RAF only let officers fly drones, were as the Army lets sergeants fly drones. Apart from this Watchkeeper joke the Army crashes less.

Just use that app that lets you use a phone as a pointing device.
You may have your freedom.
And later on a newer version will give you the same full functions as m$ and crApple devices.

Re: Disasters I have seen (or seen dodged)
At less he knew, I was at a site for a DR test and fuel ran out. Seems the two big generators had a smaller startup engine system each with its own tank. Guess which tanks was checked for fuel. The only reason the main tanks had a small amount of fuel was the delivery driver knew the difference of the tanks and the person ordering didn't.

As a student on work placement many many moons ago, a Halon system was being tested.
The "dry" run out tho the emergency door/hatch proved the 10 second delay in the Halcon flood was still going to be fine after some new kit was installed.
But I asked why does it smell if its a dry run.
Was told its just the bit of gas left in the pipes venting.
But I smelt it while the 10 second alarm was going off.
Yes wired wrong. no delay been like that for 6 years.
thought we had them.
think they are called pringles, hell they even did Pumpkin Pie Spice Flavor

Californians in general can't drive
On average in a 60 min freeway journey expect to see one near big miss and a couple of minor misses.
Double that for morning freeway commutes. Most drivers tend to drive as if the car or truck ends at their ears and most biker riders think their bike is as wide as their ears.
Add fact that uninsured motorists is at the minimum 10% you can see why the road to Las Vegas is busy at weekends.
Why is it always a green door?
Re: We had this...
We had a car take out a green junction box, still wonder about the speed needed to jump a 10 inch curb, any way it took out 4 ADSL lines and some T1's. We were down for over a day.
Anyway we had a new fibre cable run in from the other end of the road and on our first real weekend DR test found out the backup batteries needed to be replaced, but the big and do mean big generators worked every time.
The second weekend test failed as starter motor system was run off the batteries and someone left unplugged when news ones got swapped in; the second "second" test worked after a few hours, and double checked a few more times.
The third weekend test failed as no one filled up the diesel for the donkey starter motors.
The off site DR test is another story.

Re: Airspace, $381
its more, it went up to $446 in most areas years ago, Signs only get replaced when knocked out.
The fine is $100 really, its all the all the add-ons like "penalty assessment" and "surcharge" and the $1 hanging around, night court fee
<edit> found it
Base fine: $100
Penalty assessment: $260 (260% of base)
State criminal surcharge: $20 (20% of base)
Court security fee: $30 (flat)
conviction assessment: $35 (flat, $30/35)
Night court fee: $1 (flat)

what about the ssh keys ? lol
this crafted malware also used stored ssh keys on infected windows systems to login to AIS, HP-UX, and Solaris servers and try and wipe the MBR. If it was unable to wipe the MBR, it deleted the folders /kernel/, /usr/, /etc/, /home/.
key info on linux killing
It uses any stored root credentials to log into remote Linux servers: for AIS, HP-UX, and Solaris servers it wipes the MBR. If it is unable to wipe the MBR, it instead deletes the folders /kernel/, /usr/, /etc/, /home/.
we had five levels of "logged calls" back in the 90's
had call loggers take the call and type it in and give it a level of "hurt".
Very good on first level SLA's
Saved so much time for the "techs"; think 30% of calls cound be fixed faster than the time it took for the call being logged and even better if the call loggers were slow and we could get them to call back to clear.
The rest were harder
When I left that company we had a manager just to deal with SLA complainers
Two most used replies covered about a 1/3 of complainers
" We started fixing problem within 20 mins of calling logged" aka total fuck ups take longer to fix
" Your end had connection problems for us to dial in" aka you removed/diconnected/unpluged the phone line
"fix" is out
not all problems fixed in new firmware.lol

He needed to get a "advance parole"
to travel outside the U.S.A. that's takes 2 to 3 months to work tho the system.
If you leave without an advance parole, the USCIS will consider the application "abandoned."
If you can get back in you must file a new application and supporting documents and start again.
