gpo help?

would using (on domain) the prohibit new task creation template possibly mitigate this a bit?

Re: Predictive Fuckups

I have tried that w/o much luck. but honestly was prob failure on my end.

another resource is using manageengine desktop central to approve/deploy updates.

its free for 25 computers and handles windows updates as well as third party software installs/u[pdates.

Re: Predictive Fuckups

if spare pc laying around can turn into a wsus server and use wsus for workgroup program

https://archive.codeplex.com/?p=wsusworkgroup

sorry wrong link posted first, left in place just to show trace

https://github.com/blndev/wsusworkgroup/releases

can then approve/decline updates as needed per groups.

this would be for non domain pc's.

domain (active directory) pcs dont need to use tool, just use wsus normally.

Western Digital formats hard disk drive factory as demand spins down

very possibly indicative of a deeper viability issue with the company itself. they have already killed off their home entertainment/media player division, dropping manufacturing for items used in their OWN nas boxes is a symptom I think.

Re: Hasn't halon been banned or something in the '90s?

when I worked in airline business (in USA) until december 2007 halon was still used in cargo compartment. and as far as I can tell was still (in 2017) used there.

at same time handheld bottles and the like were NOT halon due to the regs.

have had to take mechanics to hospital due to halon fire bottles in cargo area of aircraft blowing. even if no known inhalation you still need to be put onto O2 and blood gases measured/etc.

'Plane Hacker' Roberts: I put a network sniffer on my truck to see what it was sharing. Holy crap!

dmacleo

using can bus in vehicles for all pcm items was bad idea, once obd-2 became mandatory (1996 iirc?) system should have used its own bus. can is low level with no built in (nor ability to add) security.

Tech support made the news after bomb squad and police showed up to 'defuse' leaky UPS

dmacleo

Re: Boom!

big bang very quickly with 4 6volts wired series and someone makes one wire mistake.

was supposed to be 2 "banks" of 2 6volts in series and guy decided to hook cable from another truck across last 2 terminals instead of the truck (ironically fire truck) + / - leads.

luckily we had MANY fire extinguishers and axes that would cut cable very handy LOL

Admin needed server fast, skipped factory config … then bricked it

dmacleo

had sort of opposite happen to me, older ml350g1 tower that, for unknown reason, had a manual 120/240 switch on psu instead of auto sense auto switch.

had been set at 240 and nothing worked when plugged in. took few moments to figure out what was going on as was ordered with auto switch psu. got it figured out, got it running while vendor (iirc was straight from compaq) sent correct psu.

pretty sad when you can tell who wrote the article just from from the headlines.

really don't care for trump but in end was choice of someone I don't care for or someone I really detest.

and since my state is one of the 2 that awards electoral votes correctlly had to vote fr the egomaniac.

US Navy gives Lockheed Martin $150m big frickin' laser cannon contract

dmacleo

news.lockheedmartin.com/2018-03-01-Lockheed-Martin-Receives-150-Million-Contract-to-Deliver-Integrated-High-Energy-Laser-Weapon-Systems-to-U-S-Navy

HELIOS combines three key capabilities, brought together for the first time in one weapon system:

A high-energy laser system: The high-energy fiber laser will be designed to counter unmanned aerial systems and small boats. The energy and thermal management system will leverage Lockheed Martin experience on Department of Defense programs, and the cooling system will be designed for maximum adaptability onboard ships. In addition, Lockheed Martin will bring decades of shipboard integration experience, reducing risk and increasing reliability.

A long-range ISR capability: HELIOS sensors will be part of an integrated weapon system, designed to provide decision-makers with maximum access to information. HELIOS data will be available on the Lockheed Martin-led Aegis Combat System.

A counter-UAS dazzler capability: The HELIOS dazzler will be designed to obscure adversarial UAS-based ISR capabilities.

IOW the dazzler is a masking/protection/ecm function

took 10 seconds to find out.
