Re: RE: switching up firmware and electronics (a bit offtopic, sorry)
This is why i would NEVER recommend "hardware RAID" over the fantastic stuff that can be done with the Linux kernel and mdadm.

Windows OS is the preferred desktop OS all-right. For the cubicle squatting corporate drones with everything centrally managed, and monitored.
For those of us that actually would like the use of computers to be a pleasurable "experience" (to quote MS) Linux is the obvious choice.
Calm and uninterrupting.. Check
I have Production servers that i have been distro upgrading since 4.0 "Sarge", so your point 1. is bullshit, and straight out of the MS-way handbook.
The whole point of having a stable OS like Debian is exactly to be able to distro upgrade without pulling your hair out. Like the author, i have never had (undocumented), braking, update or upgrade, changes in the hundreds of production systems with Debian, that i have been responsible for over the years.
Some of us are actually payed to work with this. We can't just "Build a new server and transfer the data, and take our time about it too"
With the policy of "rolling feature upgrades" there is no such thing as a stable OS.
"always run Professional or Enterprise" version"... Reeeally??!? So average Joe just has to design the right GPO hierarchy to be "stable"? You are astroturfing, and is probably a payed MS shill!
If you need a flexible way to share files and know hos to deploy a simple Tomcat server, look at linshare: https://www.linshare.org/
I'm not affiliated with the project, but it looks very polished, and is under a license that respects your freedom (AGPL).
Going to deploy in our org. very soon.
I'll just keep using good old Swing and create sane, truly cross platform, user interfaces that doesn't suck the juice out of your eyeballs if you're over 35.
BTW, fuck mobile. They can go and use the web site. The people living in a world of hurt trying to get a web page mangled in to an application, always needs a bit of comfort ;-)
It used to be the default that you could control your own device in a simple manner. Did not need to fake being an IT pro and create group policies (explain that to grandpa).
The realm of controlling your own computing device is now solely in the hands of the Open Source operating system vendors.
Regular Windows, Apple and Android users are led to the (data) slaughter.
The "Digital Generation" do not know how to operate a computer! All your downvotes are from young people that think that the Internet is either WebApps or "the cloud"
I makes me want to cry. The fact that all you need to have your voice heard on the Internet is an IP address, A hostname and the ability to use a computer seems to be completely lost on the new generation. They all seem convinced that to have an Internet presence you must be in "the Cloud". I fucking hate what the IT business has turned into. I Wan't out!
It is a matter of freedom. The freedom to program and design software to the limits of technology. The only way this is possible is for all of the software to be free! Debian is the most successful Linux distribution, with countless derivatives on account of the quality.
This is only possible because people can devote their time to do it the right way, with no concerns to interests not directly dictated by the limit of technology (i.e. limits in licensing and possibilities of use).
You viewpoint is the shortsighted one! To serve "the users" in an "easy" way. To compromise the freedom of debian to appease an "easy" install "experience" will not further the fantastic quality and ultimate freedom of "The Universal Operating System". It might get you a win in an popularity contest, but my guess is that that is not the primary motivation of the debian community.
Been running KVM in production on debian 7,8 and 9 for many years now, so no worries there.
Migrating existing CentOS KVM setups to debian will ofcourse be another matter. maybe just move the guests as raw images if your setup isn't to large and you can find a window for the downtime?
Been a happy user of debian on production servers since "sarge" (3.1). Have one server, distro upgraded (with a lot of applications) all the way from 3,1 to 9. System was first installed in 2006, and still going strong! :-)
The cloud providers are hyping "functions" as a completely server-less tech (just more power, money and control grabbing off course). This is, in actuality, CGI reinvented.. HAR!
Thinking about just writing CGI in C. All the higher level "web languages" are crap, bloating, dying or evil (or all 4 ;-) ).
At the moment https is primarily a method for GAFAM to ensure that their monopoly on data snooping is intact.
When TLS 1.3 is implemented the circuit is complete.
Maybe we should be promoting full disclosure (http only) and celebrate cleartext data as a means to preserve individual freedom and choice?
"Social Networking" is the worst manifestation of primate kill-culture since the gladiators! It's a free-for-all rape-fest with our cooperate overlords selling the hem of our hatefillled strivings to the highest bidder! That is what "social networking" is. Do not let any of the hordes of babbling, teat-sucking media-whores convince you otherwise!
Unfortunately their prime customers is the worlds tax payers, I.e you and me. No private enterprise would dream of touching that toxic spaghetti monster! The governments of the world on the other hand is so bribe-entrenched and ignorant that its easier to just keep bleeding that Oracle red..
Replying to my self, well yes i have sunk this low beacause YOU and the ftp protocol sucks the biggest ass!!
How the fuck can i get so many downvotes disliking ftp! the only reason i can think of is pure ignorance! Do you novice scum not know that ftp is an ancient piece of shit? have you ever been tasked of getting that pile of crap through your firewall?
I suspect you are the "click thø pwetty pitures!" kind of ftp users, MORONS!
Of course, this is the case. Anybody with half a brain can see that the digital worlds mechanics is merging with the well known mechanics of biology (essentielly the same at a certain degree of complexity). Both systems, due to the sheer amount of random inputs, concours to the ancient laws of ecology. Eventually cyber threats to our digital infrastructure will be treated in exactly the same ways biological threats to our organism is treated.
I completely agree!
Conservatism in IT is sourly needed. I am NOT joking.!
Peak IT productivity was probably 10 years ago. The UX designers and cloud evangelists that rules this landscape, at the moment, are heading for dire straits, and the needle descending towards he greatest bubble the world has ever seen, is glinting ever clearer!
Thousands simultaneously consuming their own copy of the latest dystopian CGI bonanza is the pinnacle of human consumerism. It is completely idiotic and burns bandwidth like it has no impact.
Broadcasting, multicasting or manycasting these things would make some sense. What we are doing now is pure stupidity (engineering and resource wise)
Video on the internet should be timeslot based multicasting! (I. E. Wait 5 minutes for your multicasting slot to start)
- Sane UI, good kernel, AD blows Novell directory crap out of the water
Win XP/srv 2003
- Slightly cracked UI "same" kernel, some web-like stuff? and teletubbies UX?
- Slightly cracked UI, Stupidly slow kernel stuff, insane ekstra ring of auth.
Win7/srv 2008 R2
- Ui not quite so annoying, Kernel faster, still batshit crazy "ekstra" auth ring
- Insane UI as in "LSD UX mobile hybrid crazy garbage", kernel the "same"
Win 10-11-12½/srv 2016-19-20½
- UI backpedaling, still insane. Kernel the "same", software subscription racket groundwork, batshit crazy patching scheme, because of subscription racket
No doubt they will rule the world, stupid and money, says that they can do no wrong
Also staying on netbeans!
The UI is well thought out, cleanly arranged and conservatively managed. Just as any UI on a professional tool should be.
"UX designers" are a blight on computing! Nobody wants an "experience" using their tools of trade! Especially not if this "experience" means change for the sake of change or for an sake not in their interest! (win 8, 10).
What we need to keep for posterity is knowledge, proven facts and plausible theories.
Code... Pha!! i spit!! "If not then this, else this" bullshit. who the fucks has the inclination to sift through that clusterfuck in 30.000 years? Code is is worthless in it self. The logic behind it is better expressed outside of code, and might not be worthless, AND might be worth preserving for posterity.
Yeah it is so easy, and you don't even notice that your competence is being siphoned away. Do you know that the docker containers are running in virtualized linux hosts? "Easy", apparently trumps everything else!?
Good for you that the 3. world supporters from the companies ruling our communication is so nice and loving to their subscription-paying serfs.
I did XEN before Citrix thought it was a good idea, compiled the kernels, jumped the hoops.
A bit later it dawned on me, as it should on any thinking body in this cursed industry: Virtualising, massive amounts of closed source binaries (aka Windows), ad infinitum, is an completely idiotic and a massive "WORK HARDER NOT SMARTER" waste of resources!
Do the applications right instead! You fucking simpletons!
PS: Containers are based on the same idiocy, with a slightly smaller footprint (in the short run)
Ooehh. i Love the smell of fear in the morning!
Vendors of remote support, remote desktop "und so weiter" (looking directly at teamviewer and their "upgrade now or else" scheme) must be trembling..
Open source desktop sharing with no hassles? I can't wait! And i won't! Now that i know of Apache Guacamole! HAR-HAR! /Nelson
Took the best pictures of my life on my journey through east Africa in '95!! with the Olympus 10 (OM-10? cant remember :-) )
Eventually had to sell the thing to survive in Nairobi until the plain-ticket kicked in ;-D
I guess we (me and my buddy) lived on french fried potatoes and the cheapest hotel room in Nairobi for ten days for the money that thing got us at the local pawn shop.
Good times, finally got friendly with the hookers, safari pushers and street life in general. Only possible because they knew we had no money!
So it apparently dawned on some people that if you download 10000 runtimes from "random internet dude" and deploy them in docker/kubernetes (because you know fuck-all about deploying servers) you have to maintain 10000 instances of security patches 1½ year later.
About fucking time! Container-dazed idiots!!
Better find that coffee and smell it!
Netbeans has always been my goto IDE. It just works, and the design is thought out and organized. It supports a lot of languages (C, C++, PHP, and offcource java) and Unit testing, debugging and version control, is superb. Never understood why the brogramming proddingfools loved that piece of crap, eclipse more? The brainwashed lemmings of MS + VS are excused and beyond reach of reason.
Young people SUCK!
Now get of my lawn
