Baby, I swear it's déjà vu: TalkTalk customers unable to opt out of ISP's ad-jacking DNS – just like six years ago
Let's get digital... digital: Microsoft Ignite switches to online-only as 2020's tech calendar clears
Yeah, that Zoom app you're trusting with work chatter? It lives with 'vampires feeding on the blood of human data'
We are using it at a client's (a govt.nz) site (paid, I think), because it is easier to get going with multiple vendors and the client themselves than say teams (we use teams as well).
I just looked at my last Zoom invite and it had this stamped on the bottom: "Use Zoom for meetings which are classified up to a level of 'In Confidence' ONLY"
I assume the client put that in there, it's in a different font to the rest of the invite info.
Icon, just because.

Came with MSDOS1.25, shortly upgraded to 2.11
School started a "proper" Computer course in 6th form that year, and one of the machines the "exit to DOS" menu option wasn't password protected.... "hey I recognise this" - my teacher just shook his head muttering something about "damn, he knows more than I do and it's only Week 1"
Flat LAN set up
In an old flat I lived in ~2002, we had a HPLJ hooked up with a (public facing) webpage front end and webcam... , so you could enter text in the webapge, which would update the display on the HPLJ, and you could see the results via webcam embedded in the webpage
Ahhh... geeks with too much time on their hands :)
Having bank problems? I feel bad for you son: I've got 25 million problems, but a bulk upload ain't one
Timely - going to Slayer & Anthrax this weekend....
(Not 'death' metal, I know....)
Even the new generation of metallers coming through are (apparently) 'nice' (eg Alien Weaponry).
As for death/black metal, I was the one in our little group of like-minded individuals to import Grindcrusher (Earache Records compilation record)... I was the only one to like it though - bit too extreme even for Slayer fans
Trying to log into Office 365 right now? It's a coin flip, says Microsoft: Service goes TITSUP as Azure portal wobbles

I was on the NZTA site last night and saw that POLi link - I ignored it and paid by CC.
