is not in any way command line based - including IIS and Exchange for example.
Do you want to put money on that? Exchange 2013 does not have a management GUI as such (web and powershell). I haven't required a GUI on web machines for a while (powershell or IISAdmin remote), and most DCs I've deployed use core (with powershell or ADUC on a desktop or "management" machine).
Actually it's a good thing. From the opposite angle, VMWare requires GUI using the full desktop experience role because of Flash. Even down to their file-based restore in VDP. Why the hell would I enable DX on a server for file-restore purposes on a VM guest machine?
Walking fly's don't last long.
Everything so far has indicated the Liberals are firmly planted up the arses of Big Media and Rupert in particular. "We'll make our own" if you don't, may end up more onerous than what's on offer now.
Lastly, I don't hold hope for Australia wising up, since the existing policies have been discussed behind closed doors, with NDAs, and excluding independent rights-holder representative groups, and all but the big two ISPs.
Google's 184.108.40.206 DNS server will be taking a hammering shortly.
An Attorney-General who doesn't like a trial result based on common sense and sound legal reasoning?
I bet the closest Choice or ACCAN got to pay-to-meet Brandis is a message left with his PA.
Meanwhile expensive lunches have guaranteed the MAFIAA got their point across during face-to-face time.
1) Register the line anyway, with an ISP like iiNet.
2) Request a Telstra DSL service.
3) Wait for the codes to become active and iiNet's previous application kick in.
4) Laugh when Telstra send you connection advice and a bill for a service that automatically connects to the iiNet Walled Garden :)
Strictly speaking, Telstra's system should have picked up the prior application, but like management, it doesn't actually do anything.
If NBN had been allowed to go full-tilt instead of enduring FIVE inquiries with unqualified people asking dumb questions to mess up their days, maybe they would be further along, and the "high value" sites would be in the bag.
Nice to see Switkowski's old company is doing the cherry-picking too. Did they have insider help?
a) I have gone through the rigmarole of the blue-screening firmware on DL360 G4's. Those clients had issues with customers buying bare minimum support, so they wouldn't have been covered, even though the unit was running faulty firmware out of the box.
b) My Dell PE2950 II can get firmware updates. Ditto for the IBM X-3550M2. Don't need a contract for support of those...
HP has decided protectionism will save it's bacon, while offering voluntary redundancies to all the capable people - during Christmas. This smacks of corporate whitewashing of it's issues purely for a temporary share price hike.
What's the issues with having a bloody great downward-facing ram on the front of a pong-like satellite, with it's only purpose to be deflecting small debris earthward?
Will things smaller than 75cm, even get to the ground?
Given the telemetry, angle, etc, would it be as simple as warning flights to divert from an area?
It wouldn't have to move far, just left/right (and height given the rebound two colliding space objects would cause) and let the debris approach it...
I would patent it, but I can figure out how to put "with a phone" in the description...
Turnbull (like any good politician) will throw a verbal bone to the opponents to take the sting out of their arguments. It will not make a real difference to FTTP's outlook because it breaks the war down to many battles each with it's own pros and cons, each which is likely to fail due to lack of media attention and loss of focus for the opponents of FTTN.
Of course it could be incompetence since Turnbull has a habit of sticking his foot in his mouth.
When I say a "good politician" i mean one well versed in double-speak, weasel-words, and bread and circuses for the masses. It has nothing to do with morality.
There needs to be balance here.
There's almost no contingency costs factored into the original quote, e.g. to allow for hazardous waste pumping of pits which is required when a pit is full of water and Telstra's funky toxic water resistant gloop.
While splicing contractors are being given ~$35AUD per splice, a couple of pit drains at $5000AUD each, can send a job deep into the red rather quickly. Asbestos filled pits shouldn't cost anything except a delay, as Telstra should bear the cost of fixing up their decision on pit materials.
Contractors (and subcontractors) are not happy, the original Visionstream quote had no contingencies, the government didn't specify work rates or responsibilities, and all three groups should fire their lawyers...
This is from the same political party that wants to re-edit school curriculum to whitewash the left-of-right Labor party from history. Or espousing Christian values while cutting refugee intake and humanitarian aid.
I think this document was a planned release from the Department of Newspeak, just it was prematurely released before the DoNS could reveal itself.
And if you look at the Linux console based ESX, then of course it's much higher: http://secunia.com/advisories/product/25985/ - over 700 vulnerabilities!
And if you look at the Windows underneath, then of course it's much higher: [integer overflow]
If you're going to pull out stats, stick with the one (direct competitor) product...
You'd be surprised how good a 720i broadcast re-encoded to 720p and played on a media player capable of 720P@60Hz with motion-interpolation can improve the picture.
Still can't compensate for the scenes with confetti or a flock of seagulls. Actually, nothing can improve the look of A Flock of Seagulls...
Spoke to a cabler while getting non-NBN fibre installed...
NBN Co set a fixed price per splice and per connection. This disregards the state of the pit, pipe, weather conditions, or other circumstances - they'd have to purely to stop cabler subcontractors rorting of the system. Problem is Telstra's pits are notoriously unkempt and it costs the contractor $5000 to legally drain a waterlogged pit by a certified hazmat handler due to the chemical in their corrosive "waterproofing" gel around their copper.
I can understand both sides, and with the Aussie winter coming, there's likely to be a bucket more delays due to pits.
So the winner will be either the HazMat handlers (if Labor wins) or the lawyers (when Liberals win).
Seriously, why are there few up votes on the three comments saying nginx is used as a reverse proxy and the backend is Apache? They are not eating each others lunch as much as the author purports...
We moved a client to nginx some 5 years ago as a RP for hosting. Between splitting media content to different host names, moving static content to minimal nginx backends, and using nginx in front, the popular sites don't see the anywhere near the performance issues at the busy times. It's not rocket science.
(The backend load balancing is another matter completely - urgh!)
"Frequent Googlers will appreciate the new Unified Search Field, which combines the URL and search boxes into one, much like how it is done in Chrome."
So stealing a method of searching from Chrome and IE is just OK, but when stealing a method of searching on a phone it's an obvious patent violation?
SBS being folded into Essentials with "pre-configured connectivity to cloud based services" presumably partly based in the US, thus coming under US laws?
There's a reason SBS 2011 Standard outsells SBS 2011 Essentials, IT can actually be responsible for data leakage, up-time, and privacy guarantees.
Looks like Microsoft swallowed the Apple X Server kool-aid as well :( We refuse to update to Os X Server 10.7 for this exact reason.
