I think when that person is demanding World War 3 then yeah, it is.

All the times I've gone to Halfrauds for anything I've never been asked why when I say no to the email.
I have noticed on their website though that if you try to use the wildcard email thing (as in, putting + after your name on the email to fill it with any identifiable garbage to you) that while they accept it they won't send an email to it. Three times now I've been screwed out of a £5 voucher after buying oil from them.
That said, in defence of Halfrauds, their Advanced tools are fantastic. I'll always go to Halfrauds for that, but not much else.
"Earlier this month Microsoft confirmed it would not be possible to schedule rollouts only at certain days and times. "
Then what is the point?
How many hours of productivity is wasted because of a Windows machine deciding to do an update, for it to then stick at 95% for an hour while it sorts itself out, during a working day?
How hard can it be to have a mechanism there to say "install these patches at 4:55pm" so it can be done at the end of the work day, or even during a lunch hour.
Microsoft will be fiddling with their nipples over putting tabs in File Explorer, but will then say something that would be a genuine help isn't possible?
It used to be said that every other Windows release was awful, and the one after would be better.
I don't know at what point you start this, but 98 was good, XP was great. Windows 7 was great. Windows 10 is great.
What was inbetween? Windows ME was shite. Windows Vista was abhorrent shite. Windows 8 wasn't great.
And so fits Windows 11 in to this odd, not at all scientific, model.
I know sometimes article writers can either get the wrong end of the stick or make a mountain out of a mole hill, but is it really the case that Windows 11 does away with local accounts completely?
In a business situation where users require admin control over the machine, the "safest" way to create a local admin account for them away from domain accounts. Is it really the case now that Microsoft are going to stop this being achieved by removing the local account?
If they are, I genuinely don't know what I'm meant to do with the people I have to look after. I can't give them admin access on the domain account, yet they won't be able to do their work without admin access to their local machines.
I'd like to know if I've got the wrong end of the stick and I'm worrying over nothing!
I'm starting to think NASA's peak wasn't with the moon landings, but was with the Voyager probes. To design something like they did, to operate it like they are, for it to last as long as it has, and for it to still keep going - that can't be bettered I don't think. It really can't..
A pint for the OAP in SPAAAAAAAAAAACE
I know someone who never locked their car. There was never anything in there to steal, and they reasoned that it'd save a massive clean up operation from him if the local dickhead smashed a window to discover he had nothing in the car.
One morning in December he went down to the car to drive to work and some dickhead had smashed the window. Didn't even try the door.
So while it's awful that a Tesla can be hacked like this, all cars can be hacked easily with a brick. No matter what the owner does.
"If you are not careful, autocomplete will also send your name, address and phone number. So far I have not seen credit card number, expiry date and CVC in auto complete, but I am sure that is only one developer's typo away from happening."
I'm not that familiar with auto complete as I like the misery of typing in all of my details every single time, but I'm fairly sure on my wife's iPhone her credit card details are part of some sort of auto complete? So it could well happen, but I don't know enough first hand about the facility.
It's a problem depending on what you're doing.
SurfShark, for example, require an email to start the process of signing up to their services. I was looking for a VPN provider for multiple machines and was going through the process, but I only got as far as putting in an email.
Not even a few hours later I get a load of emails from them about completing the order.
Now if the website is demanding an email right at the first part of the process, and not allowing you to continue to see the plans etc, that then becomes a problem as all I've really consented to was to view the packages they provide. I've not consented to being harassed by them asking me to carry on the order.
So I started out with Windows, then moved away to Linux, and now where I am while I use Linux 100% of the time but I need to provide support to Windows machines. Most of the time the PowerShell is helpful in doing that.
I think you are right that the syntax isn't great. It feels, sometimes to me, that commands given are like a weird pirate copy of the usual DOS prompt you used to get with Windows. It doesn't feel that intuitive compared to the language you use on the Linux CLI.
But it's miles ahead of what was possible with DOS, and the fact that even with it's ugliness it allows us to actually do things in Windows now. And that makes it rather pretty.
I like how you forget to mention:
1) Calling Vernon Unsworth a peado guy because he managed to save those Thai schoolboys without Musk's stupid, stupid offer of automated subs. Then hiding behind the US law system to protect him from his own shithousery.
2) Manipulating the stock prices of his own company via Twitter, either raising or lowering it, from publishing inane tweets.
3) His very well documented views on COVID19, almost entirely based on total utter bullshit.
4) Being a total, unlikable, c**t.
Out of all the points you raised, all bar one is done with his money not his vision, input, or "technical ability". PayPal, in itself, while was a game changer has turned in to a mirror of Musk's behaviour. A scumbag of a company and one that people are actively going out of their way to avoid using. And Tesla? Fair enough, it's popular. So were cabbage patch kids, but at least cabbage patch kids didn't freeze in the winter or soak an occupants boot compartment because the designers thought they knew better when it come to car design.
If there is anyone who needs to take even a second opinion on their critical thinking, it's you.
"The Chancellor of the Exchequer is the title of whichever under-qualified politician happens to be running the show at the time."
Or someone who is closely linked to the (inevitable) new provider, which rhymes with Inforapiss.
"Heck, some of them even might have been taken to army and brought into meaningless war and faced death..."
This was my thought, after thinking that maybe the poor guy was burnt out or suffering from other inner demons.
Regardless, wherever they are, I hope they're alright.
"It's nice of Redmond to point out these flaws and have them fixed in any affected distributions; the US tech giant is a big user of Linux and relies on the open-source OS throughout its empire."
Never a sweeter sentence written when we remember what rent-a-gob Ballmer said about Linux, the prick.
"Same router IP?"
Bless her cotton socks, she was on her mobile internet for ages. She'd never used the wifi, and I don't think she knew she could have it on her phone. The typical user of "it just works" technology, and she never really explores what the tech can do.
So no, she was purely on her phone's internet.
Facebook are up to this trick as well.
I was sat with my wife discussing new windows for the house. We're going through different options, and she mentioned SafeStyle. Had a conversation about whether or not we should go for them, and she ended up googling the number and making contact etc. They then turned up at the door the next day, more discussions, and they left.
For a solid 2 months afterwards I was greeted with nothing but adverts for... SafeStyle. There was nothing on my phone or computer that referenced SafeStyle, no Google searches from me, nothing. Yet it thought "Hey, you might like this advert".
I think if this had happened in isolation, where Mr.Sunak's wife was a non-dom even with 3 houses in the UK to not stay in, it'd be a storm in a tea cup.
But none of this happens in isolation. We've had over 2 years of COVID where all of us made sacrifices to protect our loved ones and to uphold the law set out by these bastards in the first place. My wife couldn't hug her granny for the last time before she died because my wife didn't want to give her COVID (she never had it). A friend of mine died alone in a hospital ward, his 8 year old son was never able to go on to the ward to see him.
I'm not a royalist - which I know is a shock given the name - but when it came out about these parties and the sheer nonchalance the Conservatives have shown to the rules they put in, I thought about Elizabeth sat there on her own mourning the death of her husband. Regardless of titles, she herself is someone's wife, someone's mother, someone's grandmother and she followed the rules. While her government decided "Fuck this let's have a party".
With Infosys themselves, I think any decent enough company (well, any company with a decent PR guy) pulled out of Russia the moment the tanks rolled in to Ukraine. Even if it weren't an immediate action, they at least set out a framework to detail how and when they would leave. Infosys have only now decided Russia is bad and should leave? Bullshit.
Fuck Infosys. Fuck the Government. Fuck Boris. Let every person who caress deeply about the Queen remember herself being made to mourn alone while that big blonde gobshite partied.
That update is - buy a new Mac.
That's their business model. But don't remember this when it happens again in a few years time and they decide to not bother updating an "old" OS, regardless of how widely used it is.
They are an absolute shower of bastards. Between Emma mattresses and Apple, it's only Wednesday and all my Zen has gone.
I've about as much proof about what I said as they're willing to give to back up their own claim.
Security is more than just a bug fix here and there. It's the implementation, the structure, and the continual vetting of all of the relevant packages they add to their site. Like another commentator has pointed out, issues that allow this attack don't exist in a silo with Magento. It can be attacked in various ways.
They can have all the fixes they want, but if it's not implemented right, then it might as well not be patched.
