the executives at the heart of the matter, and the boards of directors for both PIR and ISOC, failed to do their jobs.
It was my understanding that there were a number of individuals who were on the boards of both PIR, ISOC and the prospective purchaser.
No conflict of interest though... no, none at all...
Did you read the Snopes write-up?
Err, yes, I did.
If you read the Snopes write-up it quotes the apocryphal tale that it was Nat-West, however this is not the case: "a small UK-based company" does not equate to "A large bank".
Only a very small number of “Dear Rich Bastard” missives actually went out, rather than the 2,000 commonly stated in tellings of this event.
One of our developers wrote a windows service which polled a database once a second, and if for some reason it didn't get the answer it was looking for, he set it to send himself an email. Unfortunately, he didn't put in any code to see if it had already sent a previous email.
He deployed the code on a Friday afternoon (a big no-no in itself).
Later on the Friday evening, some other part of the project wrote an incorrect value into the database. So his bit of cheap and nasty code started sending error emails, once a second.
I got paged on Sunday morning because our SpamTitan spam blocker had finally had enough, and got a bad case of indigestion with 140,000 emails in its queue. It took me a while to identify where all these emails were coming from, and kill the offending service.
The developer was given a royal bollocking on Monday morning.
For example: "The president currently has no power to shut down law-abiding websites in the US just because he disagrees with their speech."
Was this ever suggested by Trump?
"Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen."
Reply) They are taking out 5G masts. Not every single existing mast that rather shockingly can actually still be used to make calls. I know. Crazy right?
Except they are not, actually. Quite a proportion of the masts that have been targeted so far do not have any 5G provision.
Internet allows anybody and his friends to attempt to change history with a few clicks
If I might draw your attention to the comments section of this post:
It would appear that a significant proportion of Americans now believe that the Nazi Party was a Left-wing political organisation. Now that's a triumph of the internet over history if ever there was one.
Absolutely. My personal interpretation of "deep space" is outside the solar system - i.e. beyond the orbit of the outermost known body which orbits the sun. However, this may not be the accepted definition.
I believe the ITU defines it as more than 2 million kilometres from Earth's surface, which is quite a way beyond the Moon's orbit, but still within Mars' orbit.
That first launch will not feature a crew. The second will, if all goes to plan, send astronauts into deep space.
Hmm, not really deep space, orbiting the moon, is it?
The second mission is supposed to be to establish the Deep Space Gateway, which will allow a jumping off point from lunar orbit, but it in itself isn't in deep space.
There is fair reasoning. Nazi and commie were fighting for the same left wing voters of Germany. The Nazi policies cleaned up of Aryan talk pass fine with Labour voters in the UK.
What complete bullshit. The Labour voters and socialists were vehemently opposed to the Fascist policies of the Nazis, and many of them went to fight in the Spanish Civil War on the Communist side in an effort to win against the Nazi-backed Nationalists under Franco.
they called themselves a national socialist party, the socialist part specifically to appeal to left- wing voters.
And the national part to appeal to the right-wing voters. So the Nazi party was centrist, who knew?
It doesn't matter what they called themselves, they were a far right-wing party. This is accepted fact wherever you get your information from, except perhaps you and your sources...
few have seen their boss nonchalantly strolling through the office, critical piece of infrastructure under their blissfully ignorant arm.
Not quite that, but had a boss who occasionally had a fit of OCD. On one such occasion, he decided to clear out "unused" ethernet and power cables in the racks as they were untidy... He managed to disconnect or unplug two DCs, an ESXi Host with about 20 VMs on it, and the PRTG monitoring server before we could stop him.
Hope that clears things up for you.
Not really. You don't, as a rule, "register" subdomains in any way, and therefore they can't expire or lapse unless the root domain does.
You register a domain with a Registrar, and then you create subdomains by adding A (or AAAA) records in the DNS.
the accountancy goliath let its amyca-dev-node subdomain expire or lapse, allowing a miscreant to register it
This bit is total bollocks.
