Facepalm

Blocking Amazon.com

I remember a management decision around Christmas to block amazon.com (and .co.uk) for the same reason - to stop employees wasting time shopping.

And b0rk1ng sysadmins access to Amazon EC2.

Romanticism

Time to mention "The Soul Of A New Machine" by Tracy Kidder - quite inspirational book about Data General's quest to bring new machines to the market.

Re: The Taliban are doomed.

Doomed as in - the USSR failed (while US was training the Taliban...), now the US/UK alliance is not making much progress... evolve into something - more likely.

Newsflash

In an unprecedented move in order to quash all accusations of being two-faced, double standards regimes, USA and Israel have agreed to extradite all state-sponsored hackers of the utility suite Stuxnet to Iran to face trial for international cyber-terrorism.

If convicted, the "developers" face stoning to death.

Nothing new

It's sad when a company with mountains of cash instead of inventing is trying to suffocate all competition this way.

Here's an idea - why don't all other mobile manufacturers boycott the US patent office and the stinking fruity company and withhold their products from the US market (even for a limited time)?

Put the whole country on an apple diet for a month and watch... :-)

VMware ramps crusade to make sysadmins redundant

Cyberian

Missing the point

The Sysadmin is a person who builds the foundation for a platform.

A builder will never be redundant no matter what platform you are building.

On another matter - when the world ACKs The VMWare Day, then we'll think about redundancies. For now there's The Sysadmin's Day.

Quality software always shakes up crappy IT resources. If they remove the GUI the jobcentres will be overwhelmed with sysadmins (with lower case 's') lol

Gartner, Credit Rating And Other Agencies

Who needs a credit rating agency if they don't need credit...

When is some non-corrupt politician going to wake up and shut the damn b***ards from spreading FUD - we will all make it through, and the system has suffocated itself... Nuf said.

In OURSELVES we trust!
