"One of the biggest drawbacks with FTPS is that encrypting the control channel prevents firewalls from eavesdropping on data port commands, which breaks dynamic ACL/NAT logic for those secondary connections."
The usage of data port is one of the biggest flaws in FTP, why you would want to encourage the use is beyond me. The concept was used back when there was a serious limit on the number of socket connections to a specific port, often limited by the size of the bit mask for the select call. This is no longer a restriction. When a web server can handle thousands of connections over a single destination port, why does a file transfer protocol need to change ports on the fly, just use the well-known port like a sensible protocol.
"the boss between 10 and 11 and he worked through until 6 or 7 in the evening. Anybody, especially management, leaving before him was a slacker"
Seen it, but it's a sign of poor management. The response is "my guys have been here since 8. You arrived at 10. Of course they're leaving before you".
You can't make people take jobs they're not interested in, and it does seem that percentage-wise males are more interested in tech jobs than females are, which means the percentage in the work force will not be the same as in the population at large. There is nothing wrong with this.
What is needed is equality of opportunity. That starts with ensuring that anyone with an interest is encouraged to pursue it, and yes, that probably does mean a shift in techy culture to make it more welcoming.
"Threatening "No Deal" is going to a car dealership, and saying that if they don't sell you the car you'll steal it and torch it."
No, threatening "No Deal" is going to a car dealership and saying if you can't agree a price you'll walk away. A relatively strong bargaining position.
Removing "No Deal" from the table is going to a car dealership and telling them you have to leave with a car, no matter what. A very weak bargaining position.
It is clear a lot of people have never tried to negotiate anything in their life.
"This will add a free extra 25 miles driving or so on electric"
It won't be free for long, currently it's subsidised by fuel duty. Once a significant proportion of vehicles are electric the government will need to reclaim that money elsewhere. You will be paying for charging, and probably also a tax per mile travelled.
They provide a very nice and flexible tool kit that you can use to build lots of amazing things, and just like any set of tools, if you know how to use them they're great. If you don't know how to use them, you'll need to pay someone who does, or take the risk that your DIY job might turn out more expensive than you thought and still require a professional to sort it out.
Sounds a bit like a Z80 assembler course I was on, already knowing how to use it. So tasks like "write a sub routine to beep the console 3 times" became "use the most esoteric instructions and logic to beep the console 3 times" - jumps by pushing addresses on the stack and returning to them, using the index registers, that sort of thing.
