Is any of this relly going to matter?

Until Intel fixes their CPU cockup so we don't have to patch the current ones back to 2010 levels of computing power all of this is just laughable.

Most of the work I've seen people doing really shouldn't need a GUI. A dumb terminal to enter data is the most they really need.

Re: No mention of systemd?

"What f*****g genius decided to include a DNS resolver in Systemd that includes embedded IP addresses pointing to Googles DNS servers?"

Goddamn if that right there doesn't just piss me off. I run my own DNS server and I don't want systemd trying to second guess me.

Isn't the monolithicness of systemd the very thing penguinistas hate M$ for?

Re: "readers with long memories..recall that HP was a reseller of the switches, back in the day"

"We have a decommissioned IBM Blade Centre with Nortel Switch modules slapped in the back (To make it look like the comms room is more populated than it is so we can't be forced to move to a smaller room again)."

Like have a prod server under a desk in a cubicle...

The companies internal IM system was running on a workstation with a server OS under the app managers desk for 2 years before some figured it out. Other than no one being able to use IM if something were to happen to it, it wasn't "mission critical". Luckily enough, the guy's cube was on a circuit that was tied in to the server room's UPS/Generator.

Oh, and the system was listed as Proof Of Concept. In Prod.

They do almost everything that way.

@Kristian Walsh

"...the software licences are never the big line items in a business process improvement project."

I'll mention that during the next "Battle of the Budgets" and see how far that flies. They always change to the lesser cost of MS services and then plan a big project that requires resources from MS that isn't in our agreement and blame us for not being able to implement it -OR- pay through the nose to get it when they only could have paid a little bit upfront.

@Snorlax Re: Trump was right the first time

"The problem with Americans is that they think every constitutional right is absolute, and that their rights trump everybody else's."

That is what separates us from the rest of the (Third) World.

The right to free speech (oxymoronically by paid permit in this case) guarantees that you can say your piece. No matter how right or wrong it may be. And I have the right to disagree with you. And then we can go get a beer and still be friends. Although, I don't want any friends that hate people based on race, religion, orientation, et al, ad nauseum.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,"

Some people seem to forget that from the DoI and that it is inexorably linked to the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

But if you're not American, you wouldn't understand this kind of pride anyway.

As a great King once said, "Can't we all just get along?"

"the Neo-Nazis went there expecting, and provoking, trouble."

Yeah, they're stupid that way.

"Antifa were there and stepped in to take on the NN's"

There is some video evidence that they threw the first punch.

"we should be focusing on why the Police let this happen"

They were told by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to stand down (probably on George Soros's orders) so that it would escalate to violence. The escalation to violence is reportedly from a VA State Trooper.
