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.

Poor Ramazan never used CCleaner ? it has that option

about 6 bucks each on ebay, looking at the uk site someone has a drive.
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)

Re: It goes back a fair way...
Saw an ICL on site engineer hit a power supply in a ICL 2966 mainframe with hammer to get it to work. Our spare had been used up in a 2988 a few days previously

Re: Jaguars are astonishingly awful in the snow
no just more fun.
I got some funny looks driving down from the highest inhabited place in southern California in the snow while they had snow chains coming up from the checkpoint.

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.
Re: Of course migrant workers don't take away american jobs in the long run.
you're wrong "The reason these visas exist is because business is unwilling to pay what an American worker demands for that job so they sponsor a visa for someone willing to work for less in exchange for US citizenship."
All vistas have the "going rate for the job" to para-phrase, condition; so migrant workers are not paid less but sometimes more. BTW Vista's are a pathway to citizenship not a right.
Re: Verzion routers same
Just looked in junk box . These are Actiontecs with the default WEP key made from the last 10 characters from the Wan MAC and seem to remember WEP sends the Wan MAC in the packet headers. Must be another Verzion router that changes the last character.......
BTW a lot of RoadRunner modems (thats Time Warner) are open as default.
Verzion routers same
The westel DSL router 704wgb was the same: just change the last char for password.
15 tries max. lol.
And why not change the password.
Verzion loved to reset the box so you gave up changing it and the SSID
Twice in one day was the worst.
Twice in one week normal.
I have two in the junk box
Halon or halonite
The first place I worked at had a Halon 2402 system and at the far end of the room opposite the door was had a emergency exit trap door thing. Was told normally the red lights would flash and the fire alarm sounders would sound then 5 seconds later whoost . But they had just found out were was no 5 second delay after they had the system checked out by another vendor who serviced the rest of the building's fire systems.
Was also told if it ever did trigger the replacement gas would be different as "this stuff decomposes when it gets hot and likely kill you".
Funny they had a smokers area 50 feet from the main building in the back next to the on-site archive tape store.....
looks like win8 serial numbers
Back in the mists of time I had some dot matrix printer that would error in picture mode on A4.
The trick was custom paper just a little smaller, a tip I found on a Tower BBS.

Re: Windows 8
"I hope Windows 9 allows for some fresh thinking here and the developers are not discouraged by the vocal conservative critics of 8.."
I think discouraged by the sales will be the point to see in a years time.
Re: Windows 8
Once it was just version 4's software being shit now its every other one..
The techies are going to VM this abortion and run something else.
I still get support emails from around the world for Win2K, Win98se,& XP, with the current Win7 calls also. Vista calls dropped like a stone after Win7 (no calls after 4 months). New software running on Win 8 ? well my buddy is developing his new version of control software running on a android phone/tablet and a custom USB dongle/interface. So Microsoft have 'sort of' got the idea but for the wrong device.
Re: Penistone ...
no numbers used as well
Re: just hobble the software?
Think your right, like with pirate XP the logo and black desktop popping up. Why not "TechNet testing" logos.

"Another new discovery has also been made, of a horseshoe-shaped ring of pits northeast of the main site, thought perhaps to have been a minor shrine or outlying building of some type."
"local curry house"
A friend who owns a restaurant ran a Groupon offer. Dinner for two cost $20 worth $47.
He "booked it" but was not told when it would run. He got a surprise email on the day it ran.
Only about 64 took the offer (was checking on Groupons website); funny thing is less than 20 have turned up after two months maybe they are waiting for Xmas. His return for the deal from Groupon $35. yes $35 for close too $1000 worth of food so far.
I have over 400 people I "Friend'ed" for mafia wars.
One later turned out to be from the same town as my housekeeper and they knew each other.
so is that 2 degrees or just a coincidence.
It is this stuff on FB with games that makes the report worthless.
