We did Nazi see this coming... Internet will welcome Earth's newest nation with, sigh, a brand new .SS TLD


Re: To be fair...

Yeah, I can't really see a domain name like britishnaziparty.ss being used anytime soon.

Buy it now!

Re: Are you pointing at me?

Wow! America hacks Chinese servers! Never knew that!

Wow! America spies on Russia! Never knew that!

Wow! Britain AND America has to spy on elements within their own countries because of 'internal terrorism'! Err...never...knew that...

It's been happening since people used writing to communicate. Letters, phone calls, emails and mobile phone calls, have been 'intercepted' by security services since time immemorial. No information is safe if it's shared. What's the saying? Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead. Unfortunate, but true. By the way, I *do* know that espionage such as that outlined in the opening lines takes place...and Western nations have it done to us. It's life Jim...but perhaps not as we'd like it.

Office 365: This cloud isn't going to put any admins out of a job


My company has moved across to the 'free' Google Apps solution, for reasons of cost only (which allows *some* integration with Outlook, which, like it or not, is a preferred mail client with most companies). The result has been slightly disastrous because the company has always used MS Office software for it's communications internally and with clients, consequently we have staff complaining bitterly about their lack of ability to be able to present documentation in the way they have been able to do so in the past. The solution would be to use Office 365 in our case, as it would allow users to get a lot closer to the way they present their work when working from external locations. Like MS or not, it's here to stay, but agree that some improvements need to be made if this report is correct. (Note: as we don't use Office 365 I can't say the report IS correct!)

Re: muppets

Is there such a thing as an OS that *isn't* 'susceptible' to viruses? Give the coder enough time and I bet they'd be among your machines toute suite.....
