Swiss cheeses are awesome!
Sad it is being related to Exchange Server in any way possible.
Norway's Parliament has joined the growing list of organisations hit by vulnerabilities in Microsoft's Exchange Server. A press release confirmed that Stortinget (the great assembly) had suffered at the hands of backdoor-installing miscreants and, worse, "we know that data has been extracted, but we do not yet have a full …
Interestingly, most swiss cheese actually do not have the huge holes it is famous for. This is primarily the "Emmentaler".
Gryuère, Vachérin (both essential for the most popular variety of cheese fondue), Appenzeller, S'Brinz and most of the more comon varieties sold in the supermarket all come without (notable) holes in them.
Tilsiter might be an exception, though its recognition as "swiss" is difficult, it was only brought in a few hundred years ago from Pomyra. It is quite popular, though.
Maybe someone from the Romand can correct me.
"From the Wikipedia. ... Swiss cheese (North America), any of several related varieties of cheese that resemble Emmentaler."
I've tasted what much of the US calls Cheddar, Swiss and American. Swiss and Cheddar are not quite the same terms I would use. I live near Cheddar Gorge.
Swiss cheeses *are* very nice and I'm a fan of Vacherin myself.
The dried meats from Graubünden are also something worth trying.
However, in these days of home-office, I've had to cut down on my cheese consumption.
It is not at all good for the waistline.
Maybe I ought visit the cheese shop run by Michael Palin.
I know some will howl with dispair, but don't forget that Domino 12 allows you to use a browser to access Notes databases. No more thick client with the funky shortcuts.
Domino is much easier to manage than Exchange, and can accept way more clients. Clustering Domino mail servers is robust and responsive, and Domino is not easily hacked.
There are some arguments in its favor now.
I haven't used Notes / Domino in anger for about 20 years and even then only as a user.
It might be the bees knees but there are 2 problems
1. Migrating existing data from Exchange to Notes. No doubt there are tools but usually seem to be going the other way. And time consuming of course.
2. The pool of people with Exchange experience is I would think vastly larger than that for Notes
I would think this will actually expedite moving to the cloud rather than a different on-premises solution
This is actually a valid option, IF Domino was not destroyed last couple of years by IBM's preference for financial over product engineering.
From the perspective of 2010-2014, its web interface was OK, it consumed much less (read: multiple times less) resources than Exchange, clustering was rather simple and stable, security IMHO significantly better. It was possible for an average sysadmin to manage it after reasonable amount of knowledge acquisition (one-week training and 2-3 weeks shadowing an experienced colleague).
Migration would not be easy, which is where IBM might find job for their consultants, if they still have knowledgeable ones that cost less than million a day.
I guess that MS is actually wanting to move most of the clients to their cloud, even at the cost of some losses along the way.
"horror sewage honeysuckle movie plot"
We used to watch Dutch TV back in the day when stationed in a strange land called West Germany. I don't recall anything quite as exciting as a "horror sewage honeysuckle" movies.
In the UK we are (not really) bombarded with Scandi horror n police dramas. I look forwards to the Netherlander flower powered shit shows 8)
Norway's Parliament has joined the growing list of organisations hit by new features
vulnerabilities in Microsoft's Exchange Server.
It's not just Microsoft, we see this everywhere, always new features being added to applications and then after a while the security bugs are fixed and then new features added ... only eleven updates to my Android phone today, I expect there will be more tomorrow.
